(Semi) Wordless Wednesday

It's interesting how moving affects not just us people but it also really affects our pets. Our kitties began acting out as soon as we started packing. They knew something was up and I do believe that pets, especially cats, dislike change more than we do.

Once we moved them into the new apartment, Stank began freaking out. The person who lived there before us very obviously had a cat; you could smell it. I hate that! But I suppose that's the price you pay for living in apartments; you have to deal with issues from the prior tenants. Anyway, Stank was NOT happy about the move at first. He was very, very nervous and he wouldn't stop sniffing around (which is normal) but I know he smelled the previous cat. And since there wasn't that cat to show his dominance to, he began to hiss and growl at Seabass! And poor little Seabass didn't know what was going on. He and Stank have become buddies so I'm sure it was upsetting to him that his big brother was being mean again. =(

Fortunately Stank has calmed down and I think our smells are beginning to permeate and dominate the smells from the other cat and prior tenant. Thank goodness! We were really concerned about Stank there for a little while! I knew it would be normal for the cats to want to sniff around and that it would take a day or two for them to be comfortable enough to be themselves in the new place, but we didn't expect behavior like that from Stank!

Silly kitty is taking advantage of the extra space the packing boxes provides. #cats #catsofinstagram #silly
Seabass taking advantage of the extra space that packing boxes provides. He also loved jumping into the empty boxes!

The way he's laying makes him look even fatter than he actually is. Lol #furbaby #cats #fatty #catsofinstagram
Stank on moving day. He didn't want to get out of bed because he knew something was going on.

If you have pets, how do they react when you move? Do they freak out like my cats did?

  1. Phil kinda started being weird once the boxes started getting packed, but lucky for him (and me), he got to go the sitter so he wasn't really able to experience the actual move. He left the apartment one week and then we never went back. :)

    Now, Zeplen, my dalmatian, ALWAYS knew. How he reacted was a direct mirror to my reaction. If I was stressed, he was stressed. If I was excited, he was excited.

  2. Happy WW.
