What should I do for my cat when we get to the new home?

Introducing Kitty to a new neighborhood

Just like when he was a little kitten, you confined your cat to one small area and then gradually expanded his territory. Now that you've moved into a new place, the same rule applies for outside your home. You shouldn't allow your cat outside, unsupervised, for up to three weeks after you move. If you let your kitty outside, you should go with him, and bring him in when you go in. He is in a new territory that isn't marked with his scent; and he could easily get lost if the local cats chase him from your new home. Each day let your kitty stay out longer, and let him go farther from your door.
