with me to sn apartment 500 miles from home. I started litter box and inside training 2 months before we moved. They adjusted very well. Unfortunately. I lost one to congestive heart failure Oct. 20. About 13 months after the move.

I would not trust putting.one on the balcony. I tried by buying a 'play yard' but the skinny.one went right through it. No way could I leash train the remaining cat. He won't even tolerate a collar.
