Change is sometimes necessary. You may have to move to a new residence or add a new pet or family member to your home. You may want to start Kitty on a new food or change the location of their litter box. To reduce their stress during this transitional period, keep the following guidelines in mind:
Plan ahead. Give yourself enough time to make the change slowly. Have a goal in mind.
Start small. Don’t make a big change too suddenly or too many changes at once. Incorporate familiar things and events as much as possible.
Take baby steps to reach your goal. Give Kitty lots of attention and praise so that he will view the change positively.
Watch him for signs of stress, such as loss of appetite, over-grooming, or a change in litter box habits.
Just GO Slowly, change is very stressful for our cat.
