Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi I am Dr. Denney. I am currently reviewing your post now. Please give me a few minutes to type my response. Thank you for trusting us with your question.
How old is your kitty and what is her name?
We need to get her updated on vaccines which you can do at a vaccine clinic for cheap just in case.
Cats can usually adjust to anything but you will have to take it slow and add in some anti anxiety therapies.
1. Plenty of tall cat trees so Hotel can get in a safe zone
2. Feliway diffusers: calming feline pheromone works like a glade plug in, truly helps lower feline stress levels and we cannot smell it. You out one in each room and can buy it from amazon.com
3. Composure feline treats : nutritional supplement that has proven to reduce feline stress
Those really help and if Hotelis treat motivated it will help a lot
Lastly we need to get her an exam and then vaccinated just in case so everyone is covered for rabies. Your veterinarian can also get you a medication called gabapentin (liquid or capsules) to give to her while moving and for a day or 2 while she is settling in. It does amazing feline anti anxiety and calming without zoning them. It is not a long term fix but it does speed the assimilation process
Then I would also recommended keeping her separate from the dog for at least a week in a room with cat tree, litter box food and lots of attention etc so she can get used to the smell from her new environment.
Is she de clawed or does she have her claws? Reason I am asking is if she has her claws we will need to trim them and provide plenty of scratching posts.
I hope this helps.

try the tools I have given you the will help. the gabapentin will be immensely helpful for the first few days to get her settled in and as long as you are giving her lots of attention. We also are just talking hypotheticals and she may be just fine.
