I had my cat for about 8 years before we moved house, i was worried about how she would settle in the new house, she was great, she spent a few days exploring the new area and she settled in well, you might want to keep him in the house for a few days befor letting him out, you mightn't see him for a few hours or more but try not to worry too much

there is an old wife's tale that states rubbing butter on the bottoms of the cats paws will help them keep track of where they go when they first go out, my family have done it with all of their many cats over many years and we haven't lost one yet!

Cats can easily adapt to their surroundings. One thing you can do is rub a towel on your kitty and then rub their scent on the walls using the towell. The more the place smells like them, the better they will adapt. A cat recognizes by scent. Plus, take their belongings, aka any toys, beds, pillows, into the house first. Don't drop them in an empty house and see what happens. Once your kitty sniffs around a little and gets used to it, you shouldn't have a problem. Show him that you feel at home and give him time, he'll come around. Hope this helps, and good luck. I'm moving, too, but my kitties have moved several times with me... they're used to it by now!

Keep him in for 2-3 weeks so he can familiarises himself with new cents. Slowly introduce him into the garden, using treats to encourage him back. This will teach him that he'll get fed there. It is also important that you get him micro chipped as well. If you speak to your vet, ofter they have 'event days' were micro chipping their pets is free ( I know a couple of veteran surgeries do this were I live) Good Luck.

Moving can be stressful on cats, as well as humans. Definitely keep him indoors for a couple weeks, until he gets used to his new environment. You can also help relieve the stress by using a product like the Feliway plug-in or spray. It contains natural ingredients that mimic feline-friendly pheromones which help to calm them in new/stressful environments.Here's some links on moving with cats.

Keep him inside and put a collar on him in case he escapes.

Buy a litter tray and keep him indoors for the first couple of months. Make sure he has plenty of attention and lots of toys to keep him from getting bored. Good luck with your move and the cat.
