About ThunderWorks

ThunderWorks was founded by a doggy daddy whose panicky pup couldn't stand thunderstorms or fireworks. When all the vet had to offer were risky medications, Founder Phil Blizzard fashioned a people shirt to wrap around his cat, and ThunderShirt was born. Today, ThunderWorks is dedicated to providing simple, effective solutions with a range of products designed for the most common pet problems.

  • I can't believe this works

    By on

    Short story...it works really well. Longer story...it took her awhile to figure out how to walk in it (sad but hilarious), and she occasionally gets a leg out of it (no biggie), but it actually shuts her up all night, which is the problem we were trying to solve for. Now, I can't recommend the shirt for every cat. Our elderly cat, Midi, likes to be held a lot, so this was a good solution for her, specifically. It's definitely worth a try if you have behavior or anxiety problems.

  • Okay, but could be better!

    By on

    I purchased the correct size for my cat's weight, but this ThunderShirt does not fit the best. I may be able to alter it with some sewing, so it probably can be corrected. It might be a better product if the neck piece was connected to the stomach piece and the velcro would attach in the back of the neck instead of towards the front. My cat is able to get the neck piece open and then it's just attached by the waist. He is then able to wiggle out of it and I find it on the floor!

  • Not as good as dog one

    By on

    It helped a little with the stress from the storm and family coming and going but not as well as the dog one does for my pup. She lays still in it and appears sad. She usually is happy to run around in clothes but she was miserable in this. I think it only helped because she didn't like it and really didn't want to move. But there was no worry of her following any one out the door or hiding with the fuss from the storm.

  • Good purchase

    By on

    Have been considering whether to purchase the ThunderShirt for too long (over a year... maybe two). I bought it with my last auto-ship. Glad I did. I put it on my cat for a try-out when it arrived (using the cat-treat-method, as recommended) and to my surprise he didn't mind it and it seemed to make him calmer and more relaxed judging from the way he sat and lied down. I only left it on for the ten minute introductory-phase. I wasn't sure how he'd react over a long period as he tends to go all exorcist-like whenever there is anything around his neck... collar, flea-med time, etc. However this sits lower... closer to the shoulders than the neck and didn't seem to trigger him (he has bad memories Have been considering whether to purchase the ThunderShirt for too long (over a year... maybe two).

The next day I got to really put it to the test when we evacuated for fire and drove in the car for 2.5 hours... something that in the past has caused much anxiety, shaking and loud crying. I am happy to report that he did very well! He fussed only a tiny bit at the very start of the trip (probably set-off by our female cat who was meowing loudly, distraught and sans ThunderShirt). We used the ThunderShirt a few times during our hotel stay to help him feel more relaxed and to get him and us used to putting it on. He did very well and it is not a struggle for me to get it on him by myself. He likes it. I am planning to purchase another for my female who gets carsick and suffers from past trauma and abuse. She does not like treats and immediately throws up any meds so lots of options to help calm her are out. I am hopeful that this will work but will be a tall order. She is tiny and I needed a large for my male cat or I'd just check for her reaction before making the investment. I am hopeful though since it worked well for my kitty dude. He is around 18 pounds and the large worked just fine and seems like it would fit a much heftier cat. I'll update after we've given it a go with our female kitty. … more

  • Good for an anxious, hyperactive cat

    By on

    I put it on him, and he instantly calms down. He always comes to me right away when I show him his shirt and he lets me put it on him with ease. A wonderful product and worth the money!

  • Works great

    I highly recommend these thundershirts. It really does calm the kitties as described. My only one note would be I wish that they would come in different colors.

  • Didn't help calm my kitty

    The calming shirt didn't help my kitty feel less scared during her recent car ride to see her vet. It is nicely made.

  • I was skeptical

    By on

    I was skeptical but desperate to try something for my cat who can't handle the under 10 minute car ride to the vet. and was facing a three hour ride in a couple weeks. I followed the instructions for getting him accustomed to the vest and after just a few times with it on for short periods in the house I could see him relax. We will now try the car. I do see it working as I said this cat is an extreme case.
