Moving into a small apartment with a cat

Are you in desperate need of moving into a smaller apartment, but you are worried that your beloved cat will suffer because of this drastic change? Now is the time to let some of that build-up stress go. There is a lot of great news in store for you. Your favorite furball can live a very content and exciting life in your new downsized home. However, when moving into a small apartment with your pet, there are certain details you should always make sure are well-taken care of.

Moving into a small apartment with your kitty

Your relocation is coming up, and it is only natural that you are overwhelmed with all preparations related to your moving day. Organizing your move is unfortunately never a simple thing to do, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. While you are in the mix of taking care of business, you can never neglect your cat‘s needs. If you want to be not just a good pet parent but an excellent one, here is what you must pay special attention to.

No lack of entertainment

When relocating with a pet into a smaller space, there is a chance that you might be disappointed with the size of your new residence. Yet, you can be certain that this is not the case with your cat. Unlike humans, cats can be very happy even in the smallest of places. Boredom will only occur if you decide for whatever reason to neglect your furry companion. Your attention and devotion are what actually provides happiness and entertainment. Keep this in mind once you are settled into your new home.

Don’t neglect the importance of litter box positioning and maintenance

Now that you are out of your spacious home and you and your cat have moved into a compact space, positioning the litter box might be somewhat of a challenge. Having an accident out of the box can be a much more unpleasant surprise in a more refined place. The uncomfortable and overwhelming stench can easily take over the entire apartment. So, here is how you can avoid such an unwelcoming scenario.

Be smart when choosing food

The food that you give your cat can contribute to the odors of its litter. That is why you should always opt for premium cat food that contains fewer grain fillers. This will keep your pet’s tummy happy and your apartment smelling like your favorite candles instead of your cat’s bathroom accident.

Cleanliness should never be neglected

After moving into a small apartment, you must ensure that the litter box maintenance is always on point. Keeping your kittens toilet in tip-top shape is extremely important. Cats are very meticulous and particular creatures. If their litter box is not up to their satisfaction, they will feel free to take care of their business elsewhere. Consequently, you will receive an unwanted and smelly present.

If possible have two litter boxes

Of course, there isn’t lots of space in your new home. That is why we cannot insist that you follow this particular advice. Nevertheless, if you can swing it, you should make sure your cat has two litter boxes. This way, you can avoid the previously mentioned situation. In case one of the litter boxes is not as it should be, your cat can use the other one and spare you the mess.

Kitty warning!

If you are doing everything you are supposed to with your cat’s litter box and your cat refuses to use it, there might be some deeper issue with your pat. In such an instance, visiting a vet is never a bad idea. It is always better to be safe than sorry.

The outdoor can be an alternative

The topic of indoor cats being outside can be a real conversation spark among cat owners. The truth is that your cat can be 100% happy in a small apartment without going out if you do your part as their owner. Fun activities and cat toys can easily be an exceptional substitution for taking your puss outside. If you want to give your cat a slight change of scenery, you can always let it roam the hallways of your building or seal your balcony. It can be a subtle and safe change of pace.

Placing of the bed is very important

Cats sleep twice as much in comparison to humans. So, it is safe to say your roommate will need its beauty rest. Having a comfy sleeping area for your cat is an absolute must. Once your move is over and you start settling in, watch and observe. Ask yourself where your cat likes to sleep the most. Very often, it is a spot where you like to hangout. Also, more often than not, it happens to be a peaceful place that is somewhat elevated. Thus make sure your cat bed is placed in the perfect spot because if not rested, your cat will be cranky and, as a result, not so pleasant to be around.

What if you fail to do your duties as a pet parent?

The consequences of neglecting to make our kitten safe and comfy in your new place are more severe than you might think. When cats feel like they are neglected or not taken care of in any other way, their behavior starts to change. Unfortunately, it always changes for the worst. Avoiding the use of a litter box is a mild form of sending signals that something is out of order. More serious reactions can result in excessive shines, aggression, and even destructive behavior.

Conclusion

In the end, moving into a small apartment is something that your cat will overcome with a blink of an eye. But, what really counts is how dedicated you are to your pet. If you give it the proper attention, fulfill its necessities (toys, litter box, etc.), and your love, you can be sure that your cat will start enjoying your new cozy home in no time.
