Just thought I'd post this pretty good sale price if anyone was interested. I bought one for Haboob. Not sure how long it will be on sale.

This was also recommended in that download series I bought about how to medicate your "difficult" cat.

This is supposed to help them to feel calm - like some cats feel "safe" to be "burrito" wrapped, some feel comfort in these jackets.  Apparently there are also clips available that clip onto the extra skin of the neck that some cats find soothing.

I hope Haboob will like his!

I wonder how I would get this on Kozy.  For several years he has settled next to me on the couch and I put my arm around him, we’ve always called it his Thunder jacket!  But the idea of him letting me attach the actual jacket to him seems impossible.  I can’t even approach him holding a kleenex, sigh. :-\ ::)    I think he would really like it if I could get it on him.

Yeah, it was pretty difficult to get it on Haboob. It didn't calm him down but I think the one I got is too big for him. It fits Stormy but she and Smoggy don't need it.  :-\

It’s seems like a good idea for some kitties but might be more stressful just getting it on them, lol.
