Getting Your Furry Friend Used to the Carrier Is the Hardest Part of Relocation
Felines are notorious for detesting the notion of being put in a small carrier with bars. Ideally, after deciding to move, you will immediately start writing a relocation to another state checklist, and on top, you should put “Buying a traveling carrier.” Felines will get traumatized if you suddenly appear with a container and put them in. Hence, you should avoid last-minute relocations. The preparations should start at least two months before.
Once you have bought the container, you should leave it in your feline’s personal space open and equip it with its favorite blanket and toys. You should also spray it with catnip regularly. Also, it is good to spend moments together with your furry friend in the vicinity of the container, and always in some way include the container when playing. After a certain period, your furry friend should start exploring the container by itself. However, if you see that it is being stubborn, you can try the hack with food. Take your cat’s favorite food, and place small pieces close to the container. Each day, the food should be closer, until one day, it is placed inside the container.
