What others say about the buckle/clasp is true, it slides off every 3 days. But it let me experience the difference from when on and off. It worked very well for my stress-kitty. Takes the edge off. Collar clasp is likely for safely but not designed well. I used this in 2018 and the clasp had more teeth, collar stayed on. I'll probably reach out to the company it works that well. Smell is a bit strong - cats noses are sensitive, so I think it's something for humans, personally. Overall, it works better than diffusers for my cat. I'll get again and find some hack to get it to stay on!
My 2 kitties and I moved into a home with several other cats. It was very stressful for one of my guys to adjust. As a result he began spraying and marking territory. I tried calming spray and collars, but the addition of the calming treats really turned things around. Now everyone is happy.
I got this collar to try and help my anxious cat who is having some litter box territorial issues. It does seem to be helping, she's been calmer and I haven't found new pee spots, but you can smell this collar from across the room. It has a VERY strong scent of lavender. It fades eventually, but I'm not sure why this scent is there at all and I feel bad for having such a strong scent inches from her face. Some cats may develop sensitivities. The collar does have a safety sliding clasp, she has not tried to get out of it.
We have 10 kitties and have never had a problem with them. Our house is clean and never do you smell a littler box. However lately there has been a cat roaming the neighborhood and scent marking my pool screen, thus my 3 males have returned the favor. After 24 hours in the natureCALM collar there is a total elimination of unwanted behaviors. Fabulous product!
The collar works ok, its not life altering or anything. Seems to take the edge off. Biggest complaint is that whomever came up with the clasp/buckle should be terminated immediately! Its horrible! It will not stay on the cat long enough to see if it could be more effective. The collar slides freely through the buckle. I would not recommend this brand based on the design flaw alone.
We bought a couple of these to relieve tensions while integrating my boyfriend’s cat and my kitty into the same household. Didn’t notice much of a difference, but when we went to take the collars off after a month, one of the cats was missing fur along the collar line. We regularly checked to make sure the collars weren’t too tight. Thinking our little man might be allergic to some of the chemicals or materials in this specific collar. Will not be purchasing again.
Pay attention to the reviews that say they don't stay on because I didn't & wasted my money. If I could find the collars I would return them. Very poor clasp, they just slide open, collar didn't even stay on for an hour.
I have used this product for ten years and have always given it 5 stars in the past. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has changed the design so it no longer stays on. The product itself works well but is worthless since it doesn’t stay attached. Also, the scent has changed too. The scent used to be lighter but now is too heavy for my sensitive allergies. I no longer recommend this product.
It really does seem to help my cat! She seems more relaxed & not as stressed.
Wow, very strong scent. It did nothing to calm my little girl.
