I know he loves his new home but I am always trying to figure new ways to make him feel more comfortable. I have stumbled across Nutri-Vet (a natural calming mist for cats). This is a plug-in unit containing a blend of essential oils of Lavender, Sweet Orange, Bergamot, Cinnamon, Clove, Thyme and Juniper Berry.
This is plugged into a socket wherever the cat spends most of its time and the mist calms the cat. Being a catsitter, I was lucky enough to see wonderful results on one of my cat clients. Little Willow was hiding and peeing in the house because of another cat dominating her and once this plug-in was added to her room she stopped her behaviour and calmed down. She lives in another part of the home now with her Nutri-vet plugged in and seems as happy as can be. So this is now in my sitting room where Ed spends most of his time by the wood-stove and I am very confidant that it will help our Mr. Ed to be calmer and more cuddly.
I also play calming music throughout the day but Mr. Ed is deaf so he doesn't hear it but he reaps the benefits from the others chillin'. He has a pretty laid-back momma too. Time to get crackin' and visit some kitties. :)
Brenda - if you are reading this I have seen really good results so I recommend you try it for Emily. Good luck!
