We are moving are horses to a new farm and were taking our two barn cats with them. Any tips in moving cats? How do I get them to stay around? Last time we locked then in the tack room for a week but this barn has no tack room...only lockers.
We recently moved and turned our 5 indoor/outdoor cats into outdoor only (potty issues). We just put them in some large dog crates for a few days (would have prefered longer, but didn't like leaving them in there). We're close enough to the old house that I know where to find them if they disappear.
I know 4 out of 5 are still here.

We once had an incredible female mouser. One of our friends had a sheep farm and so we offered the cat to them. They lived about 3 miles away. We took the cat over there and dropped her into the barn with a bunch of food and left. The next day, she was at the front door.
We did this 3 times and she came back everytime. Its very hard to lock a cat up in a stall unless its built like a cage. My best advice is to leave them there with food and water and hope they stay put.
