Yea I almost got hooked on scrpt drugs. Ok maybe not almost but it was a thought. See I developed this very bad (for mom) habit of marking the drapes. The stray cats, really stress me out! So mom replaced "custom made drapes" with machine washable curtains. She had to find a home for a very loving stray kitty that she wanted to keep (he has a good home with people that love him) Moma then bought some boundary stuff to keep the strays a few feet from my house (not harmful just repulsive to cats) Then she talked to the vet about my problem, and anti anxious drugs were recommended. Mom talked to dad and dad said oh no I don't wanna see him get on drugs. Yaaaa way to go dad.
My mom is a super clean freak dad thinks she has a compulsive disorder about cleaning so you can see we were stressing each other out! Some people have cats and others have fur children, well we are the latter to mom and I was always her favorite, mom would never consider re-homing me or turning me out or over to a shelter. For my mom it's like having a child that wets the bed and then saying "I cannot deal with this so you my child are off to the orphanage" or re-homing them with an aunt or someone. Maybe that sounds extreme but that is how much she loves me. While mom understands some people have to do this, it's just she could never do it.
But we had to do something so now I am on rescue remedy, and it makes me mellow and VERY loving, kinda like I was when moma and her sister first rescued me from the streets. The vet and rescue groups say there is no harm in the "natural remedy" mom and I hope they are right. I am now once again her little lover kitty, and Tiny is kinda Jealous, but I can handle him, he is is like my brofur.
Glad it is working for you!
Also glad that you chose the to go the natural way, and glad its work'in!!
I'm glad your mom was able to find a good and loving home for the stray kitty who was stressing you out so much. Now with you being calmer, your family is calmer too and that 's like a going in a circle because with your family calmer, you feel even more calm. :)) It's interesting that rescue remedy is helping you. Mom tried it with me and it didn't seem to work but she'll give it another try.
Love & hugs,
Thanks Jezebel and Blade we are so glad it seems to be working and it is natural, hoping there are no un known ill efftects.
Hi Kaci, I hope it will work for you this time, mom puts several drops on the top of my head and behind my ears, it kinda just feels like she is luvin on me as she applies it. She first tried it my water, but I wouldn't drink it and ther other kitties don't need it, then she tried direct dosage in my mouth YUCK! We fought and argued a lot. Four little drops on my head makes me chll really well.
We are glad it is working for you and helping you relax.
Dude not the curtains, Hehee, I have that problem too. Glad you've calmed down some. You belong there you know.
Hi Max thanks I am so glad too cause now mom can chill some too.
Hey Zach dude we just gotta take care of our territory , I think mom thinks I do it just to stress her out, but you know I ain't going no where I got her wrapped tight around my little paw.
