Moving house is stressful enough without having to think of your pets whilst you do it, so if possible have someone look after your pets during the move. If this isn't possible, like with me at the moment, there are various things you can do to make it easier.
- Keep them in their cages where possible - it is easier for them to adjust if they are in their normal environment.
- Take them in the moving van first, or last, and try to prevent boxes being stacked on top of them.
- Clean them out just before the move so you can leave them alone for a little while after moving.
- Try not to be stressed when you hold them. This is important because I know I'm super stressed at the moment, as most people in the middle of a move will be, and your pets can pick up on that, so keep as calm as possible around them.
