Default Can new food, new fleece, and travelling hurt Pirate?

Sorry if this is in the wrong section, I didn't know since it sort of covers three areas. A moderator can move it if it is in anyway a problem. Anyway,

1) I moved Pirate to fleece last night. This morning, his poop was much runnier then it ever has been(in the week and a half I've had him). Is he stressing out about the new bedding?
-It is a little cooler today/last night then it has been. It is normally 79-80 for him, but last night/today it is 75-76. could that effect things? What can I do to calm him?

2) He is currently on Spike's delight ( )(here is the "diet and nutruition" portion) I know it is atrocious, and I have found where to buy him Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul Adult Lite and plan on buying it tonight. This however, ties in with the Third category- "Travel"
3) I am planning on travelling July 2-4, and again on July 7-10. I am going to my parent's and my boyfriend's parents houses. I have a small Pet Taxi to bring him in, and his cage is coming to. The problem is, can I start transitioning him to CSFTCLS AL now? Or should I wait until after the hectic weekends? I don't want him to stress out too much. But at the same time, I really want to get him started on the cat food. (yup, only small amounts of kibbles to begin with, then more =) )

I'm sorry if this is rambling, but my little grouch was fairly consistant until this point, and now I'm afraid of hurting him with the food change and travelling. Any ideas on what is a good plan of action is here?
