Your Complete Moving Guide Moving Your Pets Moving Day Relocating a pet - and travelling long distances - can take a toll on their bladder and digestive systems, so try not to feed your pet within six hours of the move - especially if it’s going on a long journey. Make sure your animal has access to a supply of water and has its own pet cage in your car. Place newspaper in the bottom of the crate or cage to soak up any accidents or spills. At your new home, set up an area where the animal can enjoy a stretch. Outside, dogs should be kept in a fenced area where they can survey their new surroundings, but you should let them have free rein of the house so they can sniff everything out. Cats should be confined to a particular room for a few days with food, litter and some familiar toys so they get used to their new home. After that, you can start slowly introducing them to new areas in the house. Brought to you by ljhooker.co.nz 23
