The term ” ‘fraidy cat” didn’t come into use for no reason. While any pet can become nervous and afraid, cats can especially be a bit skittish. Not all cats are outdoor cats and so they become used to the confines of the home –unlike dogs who usually adapt quickly to the sights and smells of the great outdoors. So what are you supposed to do when you have to take your feline to the vet or for a car ride to your in-laws? The cat probably won’t go into the crate willingly.
With a little bit of gentle coaxing and the help of NaturVet Calming, you can help your little kitty relax. NaturVet is recommended for travel, grooming, thunderstorms, fireworks, or anything else that might send your frisky friend into a tizzy. Pair this with a soothing, gentle voice and some petting. Sometimes just the sound of your voice can be reassuring to your pet and help to calm him.
For those who have anxious cats on car trips, you can make the carrier a more friendly place by placing a towel or a pet bed inside. Take your cat on short trips several times to get him used to being inside. And with a little help from Calming soft chews, your cat can be stress free.
