Cats experience anxiety as readily as humans do, so it’s impurrtant for the sake of your bond with your cat, that you ensure her environment and wellbeing is as stress- and anxiety-free as possible.
How to treat cat anxiety naturally
Cats can get scared for a number of reasons – fireworks, thunder, construction work; even repainting your home and moving the furniture around. This kind of fear can be managed with short-term capsules, tablets or chews, which are administered a few hours before a stressful event. However, some cats are chronically anxious and will run and hide, over-groom or spray as a result of their constant stress. These cats will need long-term anxiety management, which can be achieved with food aids, room diffusers, herbal remedies and even catnip.
