How to make moving less stressful for pets

Michigan Humane gives tips on how to ease your pet’s transition into a new home

Less stress for pets on Live in the D

This is the time of year when many people relocate to a new house in order to settle in before the start of the school year. It is not only stressful for humans, but it is also stressful for pets.

Devan Bianco with Michigan Humane returned to “Live in the D” with tips on how to make the process less stressful for your pets and introduced a new adorable pet in need of a home.

According to Bianco, the following suggestions will make the transfer less stressful for pets:

  • Feeding and walks should be continued at the same time as usual.
  • Leave the pets’ items like beds and toys in place until the last minute.
  • Make sure their items are in the new home before they arrive.
  • Don’t give them free reign of the new space until they get more acclimated.
  • Be strategic with the placement of litter boxes.

Fedora is a three-month-old kitten that always wants to be carried around and cuddled. Any home would be the ideal setting for him. He is nice and friendly, so he may want to have a companion or someone nearby at times. If you have a resident dog or cat, a gradual introduction is advised. For whoever adopts today’s pet, the Mike Morse Law Firm will pay the standard adoption fees.
