It's looking somewhat likely that our family - my wife, our cat Snoop, and I - may be splitting time between two homes in about a year. We have all been living full time in the same home for about 9 years now but starting next June we may need to be living 6 months a year here, and six months a year on my in-laws' ranch a few hours away. We're concerned about how Snoop is going to deal with that because we have always known that cats are very particular and attached to their territory. He's an outdoor/indoor cat who comes and goes as he pleases thru a window in our house that is open 24/7/365. He usually spends about half the day inside and half out, sleeping with us in our bed most of the night. Is it even possible for an outdoor cat to go back and forth between two homes/territories without having major problems? The upside of the equation is that we think he would be very happy at the ranch - lots of mice and gophers and animals to chase. We just don't know if he would be able to deal with the back and forth. Any advice from someone with experience would be greatly appreciated.
