If you just moved and your cat is a little uncomfortable with his or her surroundings, there’s a way to facilitate a little tranquility. According to Instructables user kazmataz, you just need to add some butter to some paws:
[N] ext time you move, butter your cat’s paws before you let them outside for the first time at your new residence. Instead of darting out the door in a panic, the cat will sit down to lick the butter, which gives it a little time to become aware of its surroundings. Not only is butter a tasty treat, but your cat’s coat will be glossier, and the grease from the butter will keep fur balls at bay.
I don’t have a cat and I’m (hopefully) not moving anytime soon, so I can’t verify how well this works, but if you’ve got a maladjusted kitty give it a shot and let us know how it goes in the comments!
