I am moving to a different apartment in a couple of weeks and I feel bad uprooting cj, esp. since he just got settled here (it took about 3 months). The new place will be just me and him so he will have free range of the apartment all the time instead of just when someone is home. He was kinda skittish for a long time and in the past week he has started being much more trusting to strangers, even letting them hold and love on him instead of hiding. How can I do this without starting all over with him? Its just down the road a bit, so not a long road trip, but with all the people coming in and out moving boxes and furniture, I am scared that he might be tramatized. So I guess the question is how can i make this easy and most comfortable for him. I am asking in enough time to buy anything if i need to. I should also add, he is scared of boxes so he freaks out with a pet carrier, he is terrified of outside, so he needs to be outside only being transported from one place to the other. What can I do to get him ready, what can i do to make him comfortable once he gets over there... The carpets will be cleaned and the walls will be painted freshly so I am hoping any other smells that might bother him will be gone.
