Moving Cats who don't want to move...Help!

October 20th, 2005, 09:13 AM
I recently got engaged and so moved in with my fiance, along with my two cats, Bowie and Minnie. When moving them, I did drive the car in circles so that they wouldn't know how to get back 'home,' to my parent's house. To make a long story short, the cats every day show up at 'gramma's house,' which thankfully, is only about a block away. A simple solution would be to not let them outside, but their meowing to be let outside drives us crazy. Does anyone know how I can get these cats to go to the right home? It would be nice not to have to fight with them every day to get them into their carriers. Thanks! :pawprint:

I think it would help if you kept them inside for a few weeks (even if they meow) until they understand, "Oh, THIS is my territory now." Also, don't let them get any food or attention at "gramma's". That will only encourage them to return. Have your mom visit them at your house if they miss her.
