Not at all! Live changes and people move, he will adjust. Did you ever move when you were growing up? If so I’m sure your parents did it for the right reason and not because they were selfish. And animals will adjust the same way kids do. He may act up a little at first but just show him lots of love and he should be fine.

I had a very similar situation. Do to my roomate developing allergies I had to give my kitty to my parents. I had every intention of taking him back after I moved but when I moved back home for a short time after college I realized how happy he was with my parents other cats and the bigger house. It was sad for me, but was so much better for him. I don’t think its selfish of you to want to move with you kitty and if you think he could be just as happy in a new enviroment then go for it some cats don’t mind change, I think you’d be able to see fairly quickly if you made the right decision.

If you have time to give him the love/attention he needs, you should totally take him with you. My cats have moved with me several times and usually adjust within a day or two. Surprisingly, they’re pretty good about finding the litter box after a move!

It’s not selfish to take him away. Either way, he’ll need some adjusting—either to being without your or to being without your family. As long as he is continually loved and cared for, you can’t make a wrong choice. What do you think would be the happiest decision for all involved (you, your husband, your mom and sister and your cat)?

Depends on who you think the cat will be happier with. Otherwise, cats adjust very quickly to physical moves as long as their familiar human is with them. I kept my ex’s cat after my first divorce and moved with him(the cat)  because we both agreed the cat was closest to me. I don’t think he ever missed my ex after the initial adjustment.

if he’s your cat, then you should be able to take him!

He’s a pet. He needs to adjust to YOU. Just like kids would have to if they moved into a new house.

Do NOT feel guilty!
