I bought these for my cats Skylar and Jewel because they won't quit fighting. Both of them turned their noses up at them. However, my cat Charlie snagged them after the 2 girls walked away. I'm not sure which ingredient got him, but he turned into an instant addict. He spent the next 2 hours yowling at the treat cupboard begging for more. If I stood up he assumed it was treat time and would try to meow me over to the cupboard. If I went any where near the cupboard he would roll around purring and looking just as cute as possible while meowing pathetically. When he finally crashed from stealing the four treats, he crashed hard. He's been passed out on my bed for a very long time. I wish I could get the girls to try them but I will probably get more so I can support Charlie's addiction. So worth it.
I live with five, four males and one female. I thought that at least three of them could possibly benefit from this product for different reasons, but none of the five will eat them and frankly I don't blame them! They smell awful, like chemicals. They smell worse than old school medicines they used to try and feed me when I was young. They take one sniff and walk away. I've even tried leaving them on the floor for the day on three separate occasions hoping somebody would eat it. Not a chance.
I have two cats that don't get along and one really likes to mess with the other. It really comes him down and he loves the taste the only problem is once you open the pouch the soft shoes become hard as a rock! What I've done is moistened them with a little bit of water and broken them off into little pieces so he could eat them. If they stayed soft I would have given them five stars. From what I've heard this is a common complaint. Very unfortunate
Honeybun has been showing symptoms of stress for the past few weeks. After an *outstanding* chat with Chewy vet Dr. Jamie C., we purchased these to hopefully help Honeybun come back down to a less agitated state of mind. Well, unfortunately, there is no quick fix to his previous diagnosis of being ORANGE. He took one lick and decided that I was certainly trying to trick him, and he MUST not eat such a yummy treat; he knows there’s a catch. Relevant picture attached. (We tried again a few hours later; I broke up the treat into crumbles and mixed with his dry food. Thankfully, his orange diagnosis also means that he cannot see danger in his food bowl. Food is good.) And now, a couple of hours later, Honeybun and I are both quietly in bed, displaying no signs of anxiety, very calm and collected. I’d call Day 1 a success. As always, thank you to Chewy and to Dr. Jamie C. for listening to my concerns and coming up with a plan to ensure that Honeybun can continue to be the best orange kitty he can be.
My cats simply won't eat them. He's a good boy and tries most treats once when I get him new ones, but often with calming ones he learns to avoid them. Same goes for my other cats, it's like there is something about the treats that tells them it will make them sleepy. So, the treats seem to work when they eat them, but getting your cat to actually eat them is a different story.
My recently adopted cat was giving us a really hard time in the evenings with her energy. Playing with her didn't help and often she would get aggressive and attack myself and my two dogs in an attempt to play. At first, I tried ignoring her and finding healthy ways to get her energy out, but it always resulted in her drawing blood. My vet suggested these calming chews to help balance her out over trying calming medications, and these are working so great! I give her 1 with dinner and she becomes very relaxed. She's still playful, but she no longer attacks us or makes us bleed with her bites and scratches!
My 2 boy cats like to pick on my girl cat. I break a tablet down into a powder and mix it into their wet food, I have noticed less fighting between them, I have also started playing with them more , so not sure if it's the extra playing or the tablet but my cats love these so much I found the bag on the floor when I got home from work the other day! Definitely cannot hurt adding supplements into their diet!
I have two cats. One is the most chill relaxed cat you’ll ever meet. The other is a wild kitten that slows down maybe 4 minutes out of a 24 hour day. The chill cat couldn’t stop eating these. To the point that he would angrily steal them if I gave them to the other cat. He didn’t need them. The cat I was trying to give them to wouldn’t eat them at all, no matter how hard I tried. Maybe one lick and he’d walk away. Then the other cat would run in and practically beg for it. So the cat I wanted it for wouldn’t eat it. The cat I didn’t need it for loved them and kept stealing them. But either way it did nothing to either of them.
If you can sneak your feline into eating these you will not regret it! They are kind of on the harder side but they DO WORK! 2/3 of my cats took it with no problem! My oldest is always beating up on her 2 much younger brothers and after one of these she was a totally different cat! She actually LET ME PET HER without scratching or chomping at me! So that’s a huge win in itself. My other cat who ate one is under a year old and very very skittish! After eating one he was able to enjoy himself outside in the catio without anything startling him for HOURS! I thought he had gotten out at one point and was frantically searching my entire home, only to find him knocked out in the clubhouse part of the catio. (It’s a chicken coop with a 10ft run, turned catio) So VetriScience Composure Chews FOR THE WIN! I’m so glad I found these!
Sage has become very vocal and needy for attention. I figured I would try these to help calm her down. Complete waste of money. They are hard as a rock, smell horrible, and Sage would not even try them. I tried putting them in a container with other treats and when I would give them to her, she would pick around and leave these untouched. Do not recommend.
