Moving with cats is stressing for you and for the cat. It's easier for a young kitten to adjust to the change, but if your cat is older, it has already got used to the house all its life and moving will make it more distressed than ever. To avoid this from happening (it's very common) and reduce the stress, the most important thing is to surround the cat with things it knows. The cat should have familiar things such as a blanket and toys in the cat carrier. Also, it's not a good idea to have the cat walk around during the packing, loading and unloading where it can get lost in the confusion.
