Farm your niche market and cover all the happenings in your neighborhood
No one looks forward to moving, especially if it's halfway across the country. Imagine if you were your pet! Think how they must be feeling when the moving van arrives at their front door, and all the things they're familiar with are carried off. They're probably not feeling very comfortable at that point.
Here are some steps for you, (you can quit imagining you're the pet now), to take to make a move more pleasant for your pet:
1. On the day of the move, be sure your pets are in a safe location. One thing you definitely don't want to happen is to discover your pet is missing and have to leave without him or her. If you have a friend or relative close-by who can pet sit, take them there before the movers arrive. You might also choose to board them at their favorite kennel for the day. If you have a fenced-in area where you're sure the movers won't be going, put them there. If all else fails, put them in a closed room away from the hustle and bustle of the movers.
2. Be sure that your pets get to do what they normally do, when they normally do it. In other words, if they always eat at 5 pm, be sure they do so on moving day. If you walk them first thing in the morning, be sure to walk them on moving day morning as well.
3. If you're going to have to drive a long way to get to your new home, take along doggy treats, drinking water and a water bowl, leashes, old towels, and a crate if they're especially nervous or not used to traveling. Take along food for eating on the road, as well as enough for a few meals at the new home, just in case you don't have time or can't find the brand of food they prefer at your new location.
4. When you finally get to your new house, set up a food and water area for the pets first. If they're used to sleeping in crates, set up the crates, add their favorite ‘blankie’, and let them see where they'll be sleeping. A nice walk around the neighborhood will make them feel more sure of themselves. For kitties, put out their litter boxes. For pets with their own arsenal of toys, be sure you don't leave them behind, and bring them out when you arrive at your new home.
5. Whether at the old house, on the road, or at your new home, take some time every now and then to reassure your pets that everything is under control, you still love them, and you won't be leaving them behind.
