Catification is the key to reduce your cat's stress. Catification is an environmental enrichment where you ensure your cats have a nice place to live and play.

You can start by placing some discreet shelves and cat towers at your house, so your cats can explore the vertical space. Scratchers and toys (fiilled with catnip) are important in this process. And if you can buy or make a water fountain and grow cat grass for your cat to snack on, do it. They will love it.

We had to do something similar for our visiting raccoons (we rescued animals locally and would often find a mewling box of something on our doorstep with the morning milk) or ferrets, but we just called it childproofing! Nothing is really raccoon or ferret-proof, but we did do our best to make sure power cords were not available for chewing, shelving was secured to walls and we did not keep stacks of items loaded in a top-heavy manner. As for securing cupboards, the childproof plastic inserts proved to be child's play to our visitors, so we eventually had to resort to installing flip locks like the hinged variety made for doors. You can find those at this site: https://www.amazon.com/Door-Flip-Child-Safety-PrimeLine/dp/B001FQZAM6/ref=sr_1_5_a_it?s=hardware&ie=UTF8&qid=1508092891&sr=8-5&keywords=flip+lock+hinged We also had some issues with animals turning knobs on kitchen and bathroom faucets, so we found some plastic childproofing covers which worked on most types. Catfication is a wonderful thing!
