|Well, this is what I did when I moved from my FEMA trailer to my townhouse in November, 2007. I put a Feliway diffuser in the upstairs bedroom the day before I moved. I had a mattress and box spring in the bedroom, but knew there would be no other furniture going in there right away. On the morning of the move, BEFORE the movers came, I loaded up my cats (with the help of a friend) and drove to the new house. Put them all in the bedroom, where I had already set up litterbox, food and water, and a couple of old towels all the cats had slept on. Left them in there until the movers had come and gone and then I went upstairs and opened the door. There were a little scared of the stairs, but went downstairs to check out the rest of the place. Had already placed another litterbox, food and water dishes out as well.
Others may have more suggestions, but it would say the MOST important thing is to either have the cat in a carrier when the movers come and your dog as well, or somewhere else - if you have a friend who could "pet sit" for a few hours. The big danger is one of them running out of the house while the movers are coming and going. Since your friend is moving in first, be sure that cat is confined to a room while you are moving in.
Good luck on your move....
