We probably have all at some point in time gone through a move to a new location or perhaps many moves. Some of these with and some without pets. For those who have moved with pets, how often have you truly thought about the ‘thoughts’ of your pet during this time? You know, it can actually be very traumatic.

I’ve found a nice warm spot to nap, but it’s a gloomy rainy afternoon and I’m having a bad hair day.

    What a cutie. I understand entirely about moving being traumatic for a pet sometimes but if it’s to a better home, then it is great for the pet because they will feel safer and more peaceful. Therefore they will be more happier.
