We recently moved from Oklahoma to Texas. My husband is in the Air Force and is going to be a military training instructor. We had to take our two cats with us.
Moving with two cats isn't easy. They meowed nearly the entire 8 hour trip. We'd re-assure them that everything was okay, but unfortunately they did not care.
When we got to the hotel room, we had to share a tiny space with Max:
We tried our best to make sure they were comfortable in the hotel because they didn't know what was going on. They didn't understand where all their things went.
We made sure they were fed on time and we gave them new toys. If a cat was in need of attention, they'd let us know:
We cuddled, brushed, and played with them several times a day while in the hotel. We were worried if they ever were unhappy, that they'd tear up the carpet, and we certainly didn't want to have to deal with that bill.
In between all the playing, the cuddling, and the brushing, the smell from the litter box was horrendous at times.
I wish we had the Litter Genie® Cat Litter Disposal System then:
But we were smart and bought a Litter Genie® Cat Litter Disposal System at Target soon after we moved in.
I found the Litter Genie® Pail in the Cat Supplies aisle where the cat toys and other litter boxes are located:
It was light and easy to carry out of the store:
Since it's not huge, it fits perfectly in our laundry room where the litter box is.
It's also incredibly simple to use. All you do is scoop, open the lid, and pull the handle. That's it!
The refills contain 7 bags, with each one holding about 14 days worth of litter and are easy to put into the Litter Genie® Pail. The refill will last up to 2 months with one cat.
We're grateful the house doesn't stink because it helps eliminate odors for up to 2 weeks at at a time.
Since it's the summer, people might be moving with their cats, and here are ways to keep them happy:
1. Set up their litter box right away so there aren't any accidents. With the Litter Genie® Cat Litter Disposal System, this task will be simple!
2. Get their toys out. We have cat structures that we immediately found and unpacked them. The cats were thrilled:
3. Talk to them if they appear uneasy. Our cats spent a few days roaming and meowing. Sometimes it helps to hear your voice. My daughter would say, "It's okay, Max and Ruby. This is our new house. We love you."
4. Show them where their food and water bowls are. Normally they'll have no issues finding this on their own, but some cats might still be baffled on their new surroundings.
5. Give them plenty of love and they'll eventually settle into their new home:
Do you have pets? Did you move into a new home with them?
