My fiancé and I are planning a cross-country move for the first week in May. We're planning to book a moving company for our stuff, fly ourselves, and ... somehow get our three cats there. The logistics of arranging all these things is just baffling to me.

My wife and I are moving across the country in a few months with our furballs, Steve
. We're going to fly with them, but I'm not sure if they would be better off with us in the cabin or in cargo. The trip is unavoidably going to involve two flights, the first one will be about 6 to 6:30 hours in length, the second will be 2 to 2:30 hours. The layover between them could be as short as an hour. So total travel time, including getting to/from the airports will probably be around 12-13 hours. [more inside]

Should we bring our cat to our new and currently empty apartment while we paint and assemble furniture, to let her get used to it - even though we are not actually moving for another week. [more inside]

My cat is driving me insane.
We moved into a new place near the end of October/beginning of November. Since we got here, she has been so incredibly vocal. She's always mewing and howling. It's the same noise she makes when I'm in another room and she wants me around. Or when she's stuck somewhere.
I haven't had a good night's sleep since we got here. It's a loud, shrill noise and I can't sleep through it. She keeps me up late at night, wakes me up early in the morning.
What can I do about this? I need to be able to sleep.

How do I get my cat to stop hissing and howling at the other cats in the house we moved into? How do I get one of the cats in particular to stop being so hyper-aggressive at times? [more inside]

If you had two cats that you couldn't keep anymore, and your friends and relations all politely refused to take them, what would you do next? They're perfectly nice cats, but we are moving and they can't come with us for reasons that are too involved to go into.
