Is there anything I can do to help her? It's stressful enough for me but I really don't want her to have any behavioural problems or get scared of stuff etc.

I've already got the plan to move my things first and only allow her out of her basket once I have unpacked and my/her scent is everywhere. I will also have all her things set up, her food down and her toys ready to play with her on arrival. Is there anything else I can do?


If you are looking for a new Bengal friendly boyfriend I come highly recommended. :twisted:

Its true the world has many bengal friendly single guys. :wink:
Might be something for the OH to consider... but seriously, keep your emergency plan on the back burner so that IF things should turn bad again you are ready to make a clean organised (for Lily) break.

Should you ever actually have to go...

I wouldn't worry too much. Mine suffered through a stupid 12 hour car ride when I had to move for an internship and we opted to send the cats with me, as my husband was remaining behind to take care of our home. They got here without him, surrounded by unfamiliar smells and scenery and took all of three days to adjust. It was my presence that helped, I think. I was the constant and the comforter, and I was still there. I'm glad that you don't have to move, if that's what works for you, but they will adjust, with your love and familiar presence. In my experience anyway.

Thank you! I think regardless of the circumstances of a move the advice here will be helpful. I want to move to a bigger place eventually (probably in a couple of years) which will be a big change for her as she'd have lived here for 3 years by then. I think you're right - she should be fine as long as she has familiarity.

I new cat-friendly Boyf is likely to come with his own cat yeah... I know I would.

But thats a bonus right?
A guy thats already a dedicated Bengal slave (can clip them, can walk them, knows their needs ect) has gotta be an bonus right? :mrgreen:

I think she will be just fine. You're obviously the right one out of the two to take her!

She'll know everything is okay as long as you stay consistent to her I'm sure. Sorry about the break up (or congratulations, you never know :mrgreen: ).

@ Tigerlilly yes I come with two, 1 brown spotted Bengal with a massive personality disorder and a very placid British short hair. Both of which are amazing in their own rights.
