Spirit Essences Help Jasper Calm Down
Jasper was making both our lives miserable. He would walk around yowling all the time, and would chase me and bite my legs and ankles, sometimes drawing blood, constantly stalking me. I learned through reading and watching Jackson that he probably needed much more play time than he was getting. He is now a different cat. very loving, much calmer, and sleeps better. No more stalking and biting!
While training, I used Bully Remedy and Stress Stopper. We set up a routine of play times during the day. Created a calm environment during the evenings, with quiet music, dimmer lights and he was praised for "winding down" toward bedtime.I also learned he was a "tree dweller" and since space at the time was very limited, set it up so he could jump up to the top of the refrigerator, and then to a cupboard, where I put a comfortable bed, and he could also go above the cupboard, which he loves.
I was admittedly a little hurt and angry that he was biting me and even a bit scared of him at times. Since educating myself on cats more, I was able to realize that as a cat, he was inviting me to play and getting my attention in the only way he knew how. Now we both understand each other better and are best buddies again. We are both much happier. Thank you Jackson!
