Do you live with a scaredy cat?

November 20, 2012

I thought you’d be interested in this info since the holiday craziness is beginning!

Have you heard of the Thundershirt? It was originally made for anxious, fearful dogs and it’s a snug shirt that humans put on their pet that applies gentle, calming pressure. Anxiety experts believe this pressure has a calming effect on the nervous system and may release calming hormones like endorphins or oxytocins.

It’s worked wonders for so many pets who are afraid of car rides, thunderstorms, fireworks and more. And they even have them for cats too!

For all you scaredy cats out there….this just might help you feel better about all the things that throw you out of whack – car rides, vet visits, visitors during the holidays and more.

And, Thundershirt has teamed up with to provide 5,000 Thundershirts to pets in shelters through the Petfinder Foundation. What a great idea! A relaxed, calm pet is one that is much more likely to be adopted! Yay!

The Thundershirt people sent me a shirt to try out. Don’t I look handsome? It’s even personalized. I didn’t mind wearing it and hung out in it for a while. Next time I go to the V-E-T the staff says we’re for sure wearing our Thundershirt! Sounds good to me!

I’m super happy to share that we are giving away a cat Thundershirt to one of you guys! Yep! All you have to do is leave a comment below, telling me what your cat is most anxious about and why you need a Thundershirt. I’ll do a random drawing on Monday, November 26th, so get your entries in by Noon EST on that day. Then we’ll ship out that Thundershirt to put one lucky winner’s cat at ease this holiday season.
