We brought our cat from the West Coast and she seems to have adapted just fine. If anything, she's much happier. She did lose a lot of weight up here, though I would add that a) she was quite overweight where we were living before, b) she was recovering from having a cancerous growth removed and c) she is FAR more active now than she was before we came here. She's an older cat, so we just assumed she was slowing down because of her age, but apparently she wasn't very happy in Los Angeles because she's a tiger all over again. Take it all with a grain of salt.

We brought our cat from sea level to Denver with no problems at all.

Why not just ask your own vet, who should know your cat's medical history?

I'm embarrassed to say I never gave a thought to moving our 11 year old pup here. Just make sure to keep an eye on the water bowl, and I'm sure your cat will be fine.
