Moving to a new home can be stressful for both you and your pets. Cats are highly territorial animals and are often as closely attached to their surroundings as they are to their owners. So not surprisingly many cats try to return to their old haunts after their owners change address if it is nearby. Some simple precautions can help to reduce the risk of your cat becoming permanently lost.
This depends on a number of factors but your cat’s temperament is particularly important. Cats are adaptable and most will eventually settle in their new surroundings. This may take some cats a few days and others a few weeks.
