|I am moving from San Francisco to Madison, WI in August, and I have a few concerns about getting my cat there safely and as happily as possible.
First, the flight. I've got the booking process, the carrier, and the object to make her comfortable down. All the sites seem to cover this. But none of the tips I've seen online have talked about how to provide "bathroom" time for the cat. Madison is so out of the way that the shortest flight-time + layover I can find is about 8 hours. What do I do about litter? Also, any other tips about flying with Sapphy in the cabin are welcome!
Second, I am moving from a tiny studio apartment where she is the only pet to a large house with two housemates, two other friendly cats, and a sweet Great Dane. Now, my cat is very social with humans, and she has lived with iguanas, other cats, and a large (but no Dane-sized) dog before, but it's been at least two years since she's lived with other animals. She also tends to be highly adaptable, adjusting to new apartments quickly when she gets there. Any thoughts on acclimating her to the other critters? I am particularly concerned because three weeks after I arrive in my new place, I have to get on a plane again to go to my brother's wedding for four days, and she'll be home with my housemates!
Any help is much appreciated!
