Thundershirt for Cats
Thundershirts wrap around your cat to provide a gentle hugging feeling to calm them down. With their patented design, the constant pressure that the shirt creates has a dramatic effect for most cats when they are overexcited, scared, or anxious. According to ThunderWorks, in a survey completed by over two thousand customers, over 80% of dogs and cats showed significant improment in their symptom when using the Thundershirt.
So how does it work? Experts believe that the pressure that the Thundershirt creates has a calming effect on the nervous system, possibly by releasing endorphins (a calming hormone). This is why using pressure to relieve anxiety in people and in animals has been a common practice for many years. Examples include parents swaddling infants, veterinarians using squeeze chutes when vaccinating cattle, and thousands of people with autism using pressure to relieve persistent anxiety.
