Moving with your pets

Moving with your pets

Moving to a home can be very stressful – for both humans and pets! Here are a few things to consider if you’re moving to a new home with your pets.

We asked the team at Cat Box Pet Hyper to give us a few tips for moving with pets:

  • Start packing early, room by room, and keep your pets’ routines as normal as possible. Give them plenty of love and attention!
  • If you’re changing vets, get your pets’ records and ensure their vaccinations are up to date.
  • Ask your vet for a mild sedative for travel if your pet has health problems or is easily upset.
  • Keep your pet relatively confined at your new home until they are comfortable with their surroundings (keep cats indoors for a while).
  • If you have a bird, put it in a place where it is undisturbed until it’s used to its new surroundings.
  • If you have fish, test the water for similarity to that of your old home and adjust if needed.
  • Try putting them in a similar location as they were in your old house (food and water bowls by the back door, bed in the family room, etc).

If you’re looking for a wide selection of dog and cat food and other apparel to make your pet’s transition easier, try Cat Box Pet Hyper in Ballito. They import well-known brands and stock products like cat scratching posts, silicone cat litter, cages and wooden rabbit hutches, to name a few.
