Gumby went to "kitty heaven" and Lazarus began to bully Peabie. We tried other "cures" but nothing worked until the Ultimate Peacemaker (we have 7 cats). We now just use Peacemaker; Peabie's more confident and Lazarus is usually nicer.
Home repairs made Stress Stopper necessary. It goes in all water bowls.
Teddy has allergies and needs special food. Skin Soother helps with his itchiness.
All are shelter rescues.
Hope has required the most homework. She had been a stray on the city streets. While on the streets she got pregnant and had puppies at the shelter. She needed hope and so did we, thus her name. We've gone to classes, a behaviorist and read lots. We adopted her 3 years ago and she's come a long way. (And so have we!) Hope has anxiety issues and is noticeably calmer, no longer needing Xanax.
We used Xanax for a bit with Hope, but I wasn't really in favor of it. I think it helped a bit, but I've seen a MUCH greater improvement with just the Stress Stopper. She still hates fireworks when she can hear them nearby, but she's better than she was in the past. We also use the Thunder Shirt when needed. We obviously don't know what she encountered on the streets, but loud noises are her biggest fear. She even trembles when our rabbit, Anastasia, thumps, and she loves Anastasia.
