Cats on the Move - Simon's Cat Logic #18


Simon's Cat
Simon's Cat

It is very common for cats to be let outside in the UK. However, we appreciate this is a personal preference and may not make logical sense in other countries where there are large predators. Cats Protection UK offer advice for keeping both indoor and outdoor cats safe and happy- http://www.cats.org.uk/uploads/documents/cat-care-leaflets-2013/EG12_Indoor_and_outdoor_cats.pdf

I recently adopted a older cat as the owners couldn't keep her, and it took close to 5wks for her to even start to settle down! Even after 2mths she's still weary off the surroundings....

When my family moved in 1994, my parents wouldn’t let me keep my cat Jazz inside until he got used to the new place. He disappeared, and I never saw him again. Now that I have my own place, my cat Mokuba has his own room, but he sleeps in my bed. LOL! My mother was feeding him for me when I was on vacation and decided to take him to her house for awhile. He freaked out and shredded her curtains. I had warned her not to take him over there, because he gets nervous with any change. She now listens to me. My dad or mom usually feed him for me if I’m away, so he tolerates them when I am on vacation. One time I had to get my brother to feed him for a week while I was gone. My brother said when he would come over Mokuba would hide in his cubby and glare at him from the back of it. He didn’t know my brother, so he felt his home was being invaded. He’s always been picky about who and what he likes and doesn’t like. He disappears when my little niece shows up and reappears when she leaves. She wants so bad to see him, too! LOL!

+palmieres Um... children are not the same as animals. Acting as a caretaker to a feral colony living in the woods is different from having the animals living in your house. And it always amuses me when people like you have lost an argument so you feel the need to troll my channel in an attempt to get some kind of ammunition. It's pretty funny. "You have them living in a dungeon , with no room to play and no natural light"-- ha ha ha!!! That's called an "apartment," sweetheart. And there's no natural light because those videos were taken during this thing called "night." I guess it can be scary if you're not used to it but it doesn't seem to bother the cats and anyway it usually passes after 8 hours or so. As for there being "no room to play," literally all of those videos show them playing. But if you're so concerned, I'd love a larger place, so if you'd like to buy me a house, I currently live in Toronto and would prefer a place somewhere along the Bloor-Danforth line. Just not anywhere close to the Don Valley -- coyotes, y'know. Once the deal is done, you can let me know what my and my kitties' new address is, okay?

Yes. I'm sure UNICEF and Doctors Without Borders have legal guardianship of all the children they had vaccinated... I do NOT own them. Owners have their pets registered. People who help or choose to spend their money to help the effort of TNR do NOT own them, not where I'm from. You think whatever you want, it's not going to change the fact that I don't have the right to keep those animals trapped in a small, cramped and dark room all their lives - like _your_ cats are. If the living conditions of your cats are what we see in the videos you publish you shouldn't be allowed to own pets, and your personal ethics should prevent you from doing that as well. You have them living in a _dungeon_ , with no room to play and no natural light, all the while convincing yourself you're "protecting" them.

Not really, but the basic idea of pet ownership is the same nearly everywhere -- you just said they are living in your house and also that you provided them medical care. That makes them yours. Legally.

Simon, I get that it's a cultural thing in the UK to let one's cat roam freely outdoors. However, you do need to educate yourself on how this is much, much more than a "personal preference", because there is proof to the contrary: 1) Statistically, cats who are allowed out of doors have a significantly shorter lifespan than indoor-only cats, for all the obvious reasons of disease, accidents, etc. 2) Songbirds and other wildlife populations are being *devastated* by cats in many areas worldwide, sometimes even leading to persecution and harm to cats in response. In light of those indisputable facts, this video is very irresponsible. You make absolutely NO reference to getting and maintaining vaccinations, not to mention making sure your cat is spayed or neutered before being allowed outside. You do not bring up microchipping. You fail to recommend safety collars with tags and bells. Viewers aren't encouraged to research local statutes to see what the law says about outdoor cats in a new neighborhood. You don't even hint at the alternatives to free outdoor rein, such as: harness and leash training; cat runs, screened-in windows, or freestanding shelters; and lively indoor enrichment. Worst of all, you omit all mention of the risks of outdoor life, while still presenting a point of view that is practically encouraging people to let cats roam free; you make it look idealistic and "natural" without balancing your "preference" with any of the many downsides and dangers. Simply by sheer force of numbers, your largest viewership is most likely Americans. It's been a long road for us, through education and culture change, to shift the prevailing wisdom here to where we currently stand in the US: understanding that the proven safest, healthiest, and longest life for our beloved kitties (not to mention for other types of animals, and for people too) does not include their unsupervised outdoor roaming. Yet we've also learned that this does not doom our cats to a dull and frustrated existence; there are so many ways to enhance their indoor lives as well as include the great outdoors in measured and supervised ways that will give them just as wonderful and exciting a life – and a longer one. Does it mean a little more work for the owner? Yes. But that was part of the shift: to stop thinking of cats as the pets you can basically just leave food out for and ignore. You are in a powerful position to support this narrative and help shape the public's understanding in ways that will improve our cats' lives and our lives with them. Therefore, I respectfully request that you re-edit this video. You have plenty of great moving tips in here that you can include and expand on. And if/when you do delve into your advice regarding outdoor issues, you can keep it more concise and not sound so supportive and even proselytizing about allowing cats outdoors – you could instead include at least the major drawbacks, especially the fact that your cat is likely to live a much shorter life on average, than if he were kept indoors. Thank you for your consideration, Shelli Meyers, cat lover & former member of my local humane society's board of directors

Also about cat's lifespan, beside some races like ragdolls or some birmans, few cats are enclined to live indoor. If your cat lives a happier but shorter life it's better than a frustrating long life full of stress. Ofc it depends on the cat but mines are rescued cats and could never be happy living indoor

Eh, not worried. I've moved twice with my ragdoll already. He gets nosy when things start to go in boxes, then he put himself in his crate on the last move and didn't need a safe room. He's an only cat with a lot of confidence, so he's awesome with any kind of change. There were 3 days I even left him at my parents' house (who also just have dogs) and my mom said he settled right in after just 30min of separation anxiety after I left. When he was an adolescent (1yr for ragdolls) I used to take him with me to visit neighbors in the apartment. He adapted instantly so long as I was comfortable there. Awesome cat!

Typically. I actually don't like cats. I just liked how fluffy and flexible they were. Then I got a purebred Ragdoll. He's like a lazy dog basically. I have to check on his food bowl bc as long as he's by my side getting affection he doesn't care much about his food. It's probably the best breed for someone who doesn't like the sassy cat attitude.

When moving house, we moved the cat two days before the actual move, and from that moment we stayed the night in our new house as well. The cat sure let us know when he was ready to explore beyond his safe room - less than 2 hours in! During the move we kept him in that room and instructed the movers to keep that door closed. Turns out, the warning wasn't really necessary - he was vocal enough to let the whole world know where he was, and what he thought of being locked in again.

One of our kitties went missing the last time we moved house. He managed to sneak outside, and we knew roughly where he was hiding cause we'd followed him to his hidey-hole. But of course nobody could get to him there. We wound up having to set a trap for him, and the neighbors kept an ear out for meowing. We got him back a couple days after the move, and he was perfectly fine.

Whenever we have moved house, usually using a moving van, our bedroom furniture is the last thing loaded & therefore 1st off the truck. Everything is set up in our bedroom, bed made etc then the cats are placed in there with food, water litter box & the door is closed until everything in the house is sorted. The cats settle well in our bedroom & come out to find everything they know around them. Over the past 3 years we have travelled full time around New Zealand with 5yr old Birman cat, 8 yr old Cocker Spaniel & 2yr old chihuahua cross boy. The cat travels in the caravan (his choice), the dogs ride in the ute with us. The cat travels well & as soon as he hears the stabilisers go down he is at the door asking for his harness to be put on & ready to take one of us for a stroll. He is one very laid back, non-stressed fur purrson. When leaving the van for the 1st time at each destination, he strolls out about 20 meters (on his harness of course), stops, looks all around & back at the van - obviously orientating himself & then we are off to explore, slave in tow. I do believe we can overdo the worrying about how a cat will settle in a new home. Common sense & familiarity will normally prevail. Personally I think isolating your cat in a room with just his toys, bed & litter box would be far more traumatising than settling it into a bedroom with everything set up & familiar. Just my thoughts 🤗

I introduced my cat to the new place before moving in any furniture. He hid in the pantry and cried. Compared to a one bedroom apartment all that space was too much for him. Later that week I set up his litter box, food, and water dishes before bringing him over with a loaded car. I fully intended to bring him back to the apartment but he would not get back in his carrier. He had already adapted to the bigger space. No way was he going back! He's lost 3-4 lbs which I'm sure the vet will be happy about. He studies his "kingdom" from the front porch before doing his business in the neighbors mulch which makes zero sense since I have a much bigger pile on the front lawn. Silly boy.

I don't think that it's the CATS who get neurotic about moving as much as it is the PEOPLE MAKING THEIR CATS NEUROTIC about moving. (I hate saying this; I'm not old but you guys make me feel old, but…) In my day, cats weren't (barring an ACTUAL traumatic experience) so neurotic! What happened to the great predators of their ancestry? You've turned these great predators into… … …PUSSIES!

Like the lady said, all cats are different. Some cats take readily to a new space, others get anxious over all the new smells. Especially if there are other cats in the new neighborhood. Heck, some cats have nervous breakdowns just from a car ride. One of my grandparents' cats when Dad was a kid was like that. They'd taken him on a trip with them and he was so freaked out they had to tranquilize him for the trip back.

When your cat(s) first go out in the new neighbourhood, daub a bit of butter on their paws. They will sit down to lick of the butter, thus staying on the front porch for a minute or two. The butter will take up the smell of the deck and transfer it to their face. Their oils will transfer to the butter and will be left behind wherever they walk. Even if it rains, the oils will remain stable and they will find their way home.

I have driven across the US several times to re-locate to a new job and each time traveled with a cat or a small dog who had its own travel crate. Traveling with a cat was much easier for me than traveling with a dog -- dogs have to have a few rest stops during the day to be walked and to have a little food and water. It has been my experience that a traveling cat just wants to stay in its travel crate and will refuse to use a litter box or drink or eat anything until settled into a motel/hotel at night. Pets stay for free at La Quinta and Motel 6 lodging, so, if you are not too fussy about your own lodging, it will not cost you extra for your pet to travel with you. It has also been my experience that when moving into a different house or apartment, a cat does not like walking across a large unfurnished room and is much happier inside a small room with a few suitcases or empty boxes to hide behind or inside until the familiar furniture arrives.

I moved 2 times since I've had my cat and in general he reacted pretty well to the houses themselves. The first time we moved the new house was 3 times bigger and I think he loved the space. The second time he didn't really like cause we moved to a house even smaller than our first, but he got used fast and I think the reason for that is that we didn't get new furniture, we took with us everything we had from the beginning so the new houses were smelling like the first one because of the furniture and such

My own cat died age 17 last year. In the meantime I had been feeding a cat that was abandoned when the neighbours where evicted. He would not come in while Alfie was still alive but I thought I would try to bring him in during the cold snap earlier this year: he hated indoors and spent all his time trying to jump out of every window he could find. Had to let him out again or he would have hurt himself. At least I have got him a cat kennel and can put a heated pad in that!

He immediately came to us, started mewing and touched our hands with its paw. It even played with some of the kids. Then it disappeared but the following night at two in the morning it was in my garden again. Maybe it was disoriented. Beautiful cat though.

Suggestion for moving a long distance if you have a cat!! In 1985, I moved from Philadelphia, PA to Tampa, FL, a distance of around 1,200 miles. I would be driving a 40 foot U-Haul and had my car hooked to the rear. My 110 pound German Shepherd, Kelly, would do well. My calico cat, Krystal would not. I saw an ad in the paper about a boarding kennel that was really close to Philadelphia International Airport. They will board any animal and put them on a plane! I got a paper from the airport which the veterinarian would fill out. She needed to have a rabies vaccines within 6 months of her flight. The vet updated all her vaccines and completed the form. He also gave me pills for the day of the flight. I went to the kennel to get everything set up. On 12/4/85, I took Krystal in a carrier that my dad had made for her. It had plush carpeting and a clip clasp so the door didn't pop open. I then purchased the flight ticket, for her to leave on 12/11, and paid for the airline ticket and boarding fees. They would give her the tranquilizer and take her to the airport and see to it that she got on the plane. On 12/11, my dad and I drove to the cargo part of Tampa International to wait for the workers to bring her and several other animals to cargo. I produced a paper, which matched the paper given to me by the kennel as well as a copy of her plane ticket. The kennel was nice and clean and they asked that I call them on the 11th and let them know when Krystal arrived!! While I am sure that airplane ride wasn't on Krystal's top ten favorites, it was much better than a 1,200 mile ride in a truck. With a dog, you can just ask if they want to go out, but a cat, they aren't happy unless they are used to traveling. If you have a cat that is not used to car travel, & need to take her/him with you, ask at any airport and they will know of animal boarding and flights out!! We stayed with my parents until I found a job and then a place to live. Krystal loved my parents house. They had a big screen porch which meant she could go outside, but not run loose!! She & my mom got up at the same time. Mom got Krystal's breakfast and then Krystal would go to the door and meow. Of course she had plenty of water outside and a litter pan, which she refused to use!! When she needed to use the litter pan she would go to the door and hit it with her paw. If one of us did not get the door in her idea of a timely fashion, she would turn around on the step and use her back foot to knock at the door!! She would come in, use the pan, get some water, and then meow to go out!! The tiny lizards in Florida were fascinating to her. They seemed to know how close they could get to her without becoming a snack!

Hi Simon, thanks for this. When we moved from Spain to Germany , i had the same considerations: a quiet road and a nice garden. There was no sanctuary though, we were without furniture both on leaving and on arriving. Fortunately, we could be together all the time and my cat loved the new place immediately, particularly all the exploring out of doors. I feel very sorry for all the cats that are locked up in flats.

It's really not. Do you stop sending your kids to school because they might be hit by a car or some nut-job might decide that today's the day to shoot up a classroom? Letting cats outside isn't always the great evil people make it out to be. It depends a great deal on the local conditions and the individual cat's capabilities. For instance, I live on a farm. One of our cats spends most of his time outside keeping the yard and buildings free of mice. The other stays indoors because she's old and probably wouldn't survive another pregnancy or the surgery to fix her. My sister picked her up as a stray, by the way, she was already an adult and my sister thought she was already fixed because she'd been out several times and hadn't gotten pregnant. Then in the last two years she got pregnant three times. Fun. But her son is a great mouser and gets along well with the dog, so some good came out of it.

That's your experience. Not everyone has the same experience. Despite all the horror many people express at the very idea of letting cats outside, the critters don't seem to be any worse off in the UK than they are in the USA. So maybe it isn't as big a deal as folks make it out to be.

So you don't have cars in the UK? Or dogs that hate cats? Or people that hate cats? Or stray cats that will fight yours and may give it a disease? People need to stop acting like natural predators are the only things you have to worry about when letting a cat roam outdoors. This is not about cultural norms. This is just about being a responsible pet owner. As a cat owner myself, I find that a lot of cat owners are lazy af and only let their cats roam because they can't be bothered to keep them entertained indoors or teach them to walk on a leash.

My previous cat, Twitches (may she rest in peace), was always trying to get outside. She was born a barn cat and even though I got her as a small kitten she was always half-wild. She quite literally bounced off the walls of my apartment when she wasn't staring out the windows chattering. Currently, I kinda share custody of a sweet little tabby with my niece. He's allowed to stay around only because he spends most of his time outside keeping the farmyard free of mice. Predators *would* be a concern except we've got a big Old English sheepdog that keeps anything bigger than a house cat well away. And, like Simon said in his pinned comment, letting cats outside is standard practice in the UK. There aren't any big predators to worry about and I suspect that since everyone is used to cats being outside they're a little more observant when driving.

This came along just in time. I've been living with family for the past year, but I'll be renting an apartment as soon as one becomes available. This will be the 39th time that I'll be moving into another place; fortunately, my cats haven't been moved that often. Since I can only afford a one-bedroom apartment, they won't have an actual sanctuary room. I'll set up the bedroom first so they can have that.

I moved to new home. I dnt have any pets but whole neighbourhood has lots and lots of cats all shapes colours and sizes. Everywhere from a cat just chilling in the middle of the road to fences to summer house roof to literally everywhere. Previous owner had a cat so i assume all cats used to have their annual meeting in my garden. So i can see as they all keep my garden busy. If only i leave the cat flap open they will rule in my house... jokes aside i like watching cats going about their business every day... we buy treats for them even thou we dnt have any pet. I guess thats how cats rule...lol...

Please be careful with giving them treats! This is why I had to keep my kitty in doors the last bit of his life. Somebody was feeding him something he was allergic to and he would come home with diarrhea I would keep him in for a few days and he wouldn't be sick, we'd let him out he'd come back sick. I had to become a very strict mom and supervise his outside time. None of this was fun for either of us.

You should really make your cats indoor-only. We recently rescued a kitten that had a cuterebra in its neck. These creatures are just about the most awful and disgusting things nature has created, and letting your cats outside exposes them to the risk of getting them, as well as several deadly diseases.

Tbh I moved 8 times since moving up north from london. My cats got used to new smells and in the end they didnt give two diddly squats. The house im currently in, they sniffed around and went to sleep like they've been here all their life. Woke at at 4 in the afternoon for their tea and went back to sleep. A week later we let them out to explore, they came back and everything was fine. We didnt do anything like that lady said.

I'm dreading transferring our Lulu to our new house-to- become- home in the not too distant future. She chose to come to live with us almost three years ago, it's only now that she has learned to miaw, play, knead and purr, she didn't do any of these things at all to begin with. She seems so happy to have a routine that I really do worry about how she'll cope. I've taken her down to the new house a couple of times, I think I need to increase the visits so she might get a bit used to the place?

I had a similar situation 6 months ago! For your cat, the drive back and forth could be stressful possibly. My cat spent all her life to that point in the same place so the move was a shock. I kept my cat in the old house as long as possible. I took her and her favorite things like blankets, beds, toys, and a used litter box, and put them in the bedroom,. I kept the door closed and spent a great deal of time reassuring her. She stayed very close to the litter box which was in the closet, and kept rubbing against it so I put her bed and blankets, etc next to it so she'd feel secure. I think the smaller space was comforting. I stayed with her as she explored the new house, which is what she wanted. It went very well! Also, I made sure the fences in the yard are high enough for her to have a secure territory, and helped her explore the yard. She loves this home now! Best to you!

Reassurance makes a big difference! I do not often see this mentioned, but it matters! Talk to the kitty, and show him/her around, and play and make it a happy place. I just wrote a long reply to Barbara Stepien-foad about this - I recently moved a cat who was very upset by the changes. Let the kitty know it is safe and loved! Best to you!

Play with it and comfort it. Give it extra attention until it becomes comfortable. You could try putting in a nightlight. Ironically, some cats aren't so comfortable in the dark if they're not familiar with the area. Do anything you can to reduce the anxiety of the cat. Most of all just be patient.

It's okay for cats to go outside. Human habitation has pushed out the natural predators, such as foxes (even other cats, like lynxes and bobcats), and creates a gap in the eco-system. Predators are extremely important, not just in keeping down pest populations, but in culling the weak from other species. Cats are actually, despite being one of the most effective predators on the planet, virtually incapable of catching a healthy bird, and we can see from history and other environments that protecting the weak of a species is an extreme detriment to the species as a whole, as they not only consume resources, but spread disease and perpetuate bad genes amongst the larger population. So yes....it's okay to let your cat outside. It's just not okay to drop cats on isolated landmasses where the entire eco-system is pre-dependent on a complete LACK of predators.

Our HOA says all cats must either be supervised while outside or cannot leave the owner's property. Which is funny because we live in a townhome and there's no fences or anything, nor can we install any. In the end we see cats everywhere all the time and nobody cares so nobody reports.

it's also a good idea to show the cats around in the garden and around the house on a lead. so you have full control on how long and where the cat goes the first times outside. they might take this area as their base later on and feel secure and happy hanging out close to the house, instead of somewhere far away or dangerous. we did that with our cats who were really unproblematic with getting acompaigned to different houses (it came to a point where they knew their ways around three houses and were allowed and able to roam freely) i think we might also have suceeded to have them understand that the road beside my grannys house (no fence inbetween) is a danger zone. it's a steep hillside road, cats were hit there before as it's not the easiest to drive up and down this road in every weather condition, so i understand why accidents can happen, some people are just dangerous drivers, though. with our cats on the leash (or without) we acted how we wanted to them to act: get far away from the road by the sound of cars - and do it fast, don't hang around on the road, cross it (if you have to) quickly if no car is in sight or hearing distance. of course we have seen them cross the road with a car in sight or perching on the garden wall when cars went by, but they are much more cautious than other cats i have observed (strolling on the road when a car came closer, already limping.... my cat would never do that he always does a run when he crosses a road, and that makes me very very happy) also with kittens: don't let them play on or around cars and roads, even when standing still, cars are evil, stinking, cat-killing, metal monsters as far as your cat is concerned. if a cat understands this, chances are their nine lives will last a hell of a lot longer. the cat might not be a dog copying everything the owner does but they pick up on what the owner does and what places the human gets nervous and where the spots are we are relaxed and playful we should try the cat toilet gardenbed trick, though 😁 one neighbour seems to be the proud owner of someones favorite spot for something.... at least she is convinced.
