Moving with pets can be a delicate maneuver. Owners often go to great lengths to make sure their furry friends are comfortable during the stress of moving even if it's within the same town. Pets are often disoriented by the new surroundings, smells and new sounds. It's best to introduce them slowly to make sure they don't become overwhelmed.
With cats especially, it's best to keep them indoors for a few days until they are used to the new house. If you let them outside right away, they will sometimes take off and not come back. This is because they aren't sure where they are and they aren't sure you are staying either.
If at all possible, arrange your furniture with similarity to the way it was in your previous dwelling. This will help with the transistion as some things will feel familiar even if they are in a new space. If you need a distraction for your cat, just give him a few leftover moving boxes to hide in and he'll be back to himself in no time.

The National Association of Realtors’ most recent Existing Home Sal
"It was a pleasure to work with Julie Baldino. A very kind person, helping us with a lot of time and dedication to get the house that we were looking for and not a house to buy quick. It took several houses to go around looking at the good and the bad and we didn't get the pressure with her to get a home which wasn't the right one for us. She always was trying to be sure that we were buying "our house".
Once we found it, she took care of every single detail with the seller's Realtor to complete all paperwork, inspections and any requests to the sellers.
We are enjoying our house and we have only a big thanks to her because she was on our side at all times and we got "our house". I would refer any of my friends or family to Julie and her team."
