Most effective ways to calm anxious cats

Used to being independent and in control, most cats find the experience of traveling in a carrier to be stressful. Unfamiliar smells, sights, the sound of traffic, and the sensation of being enclosed while moving... it's enough to make any cat complain in the back seat during the whole journey. If you're planning to travel with your cat, consider one of the many natural stress relievers available, or consult with your veterinarian about your prescription options.

Safe and easy to administer, natural stress remedies help calm your cat so she can tolerate the stressful miles. Calming aids like Rescue Remedy, use herbal formulas that ease stress without overly sedating your cat. Whether or not you give your cat a calming aid before traveling, also consider bringing along some catnip to distract her attention through the most hectic of journeys.

Choosing the right stress reliever
Every pet responds differently to these natural products, so if you find that your pet doesn't respond well to one, consider trying a different product. The right choice for your pet is the one she will readily accept.
