I have a feeling I won't be coming back here, big house or not. How long have you been in Tx?

We used the infuser when we first brought him home, and it seemed to destress him fairly well so hopefully he'll associate the smell with good things.
Try putting an old sweater or something similar in the crate. A familiar smell of it's owner makes them feel secure. Most family pets love the security of an enclosed space such as a crate.

I left my crate out in the house for a few weeks before I moved so the cat could get used to it. The door was open with one of my jumpers in it and her cat nip toys. She got very used to being in and out of it and even took little naps in it.

Thanks for the advice on the crates. I'm going to start putting the crates out early, stash some clothes in there and see what happens (for the rescue cat, I'll probably just put a couple of newspapers in there -- he loves them!).

Just wanted to say thanks to all of you who gave me advice on the crates. I left them out, and surprise surprise, our rescue cat -- who I thought would hate the crate -- is now sleeping in it regularly, so he shouldn't be any problem at all. Our older, wiser female, however, is taking a very wide berth!
