We have a cat who started barbering when being abused at his last home. We tried prescription medication and quite a few OTC treatments for it, but nothing worked. Now we give him one or two of these treats anytime he's anxious or barbering. The barbering stops, his anxiety fades, and he usually starts napping. We are super grateful to find a way to stop the unfortunate barbering.
We have three cats and I can honestly say that all of them rather enjoy these treats- As much as the Temptations! They definitely work, too. One night, our wildest cat got one of the other cat’s portion, and he was so conked out that I wish I had trimmed his claws- he probably wouldn’t have noticed. While these seem to take effect for only about 12 hours, I’d still recommend for daily or situational use.
Our cat was exhibiting some anxious behaviors and after reading reviews we decided to try these. I’ve combined his diet with Pro Plan Calming Supplement so I’m not sure exactly what does the trick, but he is much calmer now! These are also to give him since he loves the flavor. Your cat will probably love them too! Recommended!
My Melo has developed hyperthyroidism & it makes all of us Crazy! He gallops thru this house like his tail is on fire & whatever is terrorizing him, he takes out on poor Kiki. He'll generally eat Anything that crosses his face.....except these treats!!! For some reason, he just doesn't Get that they're edible! He sniffs at them, mouthed One & promptly spit it out (but eats dust balls like they're dessert!!). Kiki tried a couple but she's Already pretty laid back (except where he's involved!) so I'd rather not feed them to her. Maybe they work for other nervous Nellie cats but unfortunately not mine.
My cats have always refused to eat treats. I got this one because it was for calming. They go bonkers for it. Now every crinkle they hear gets them excited. It has helped calm the cat who was stressed about cats outside.
I finally found a calming treat Abbey will eat! She doesn't rush to eat them like regular treats but she will eat them. I give them to her when it storms an when outside noise is too loud. They are putting in new sewer lines in front of my building and it gets loud.
Unfortunately my cat wouldn't eat these, so I can't speak to the effectiveness. Best I could get from him was a couple licks. They do have a funky odor, which I would think would appeal to him since he likes rubbing on stinky shoes, but he wasn't interested.
My cat suffers from extreme anxiety and hyperesthesia and this supplement helps calm him down within 30 minutes! I only have to give him 5 treats instead of the recommended 10 and that does the trick for us. My cat is also very picky about taste but he loves these!! Highly recommend!!
I have 3 cats all 1 year old and at night they can get absolutely crazy and loud and I feel for my downstairs neighbor, so I got these to try and it does help calm them and they all eat them just fine. I also haven't noticed and stomach issues or weird behavior. I will repurchase.
WOW, My cats never even chewed them, they swallowed them whole and were begging for more. It was like crack for cats! I am not really sure if it calmed them down, although they did look a little chilled out.
