Although self movers can understand what the moving process entails and comprehend the entirety of the situation, the same isn’t necessary true for their cats. For these furry members of the family, moving to or from Atlanta, Georgia, can be upsetting – and even stressful – because of the uncertainty and unfamiliarity associated with relocating to a new home.
First, individual movers will need to decide whether it would be best to move their cats by plane or by car. When making this decision, it may be good to consider the distance of the move, how the cats react to these different modes of transportation, and whether the movers will be using this method to get to or from Atlanta as well. Keep in mind that some airlines may not allow pets to be shipped without their owners.
Regardless of the mode of transportation, self movers will want to get their cats accustomed to using crates for safe travel. A good way to do this is to leave their carrier open on the floor and place food, water, toys, or any small blankets that they like inside, allowing them to come and go as they please. Movers may also want to consult their vet for kitty sedatives to allow transportation to go more smoothly.
