A natural way to help your cat relax
Cats love to roll in certain plants to release the aromas or to eat particular types of grasses to soothe their digestive tract. All cats, both wild and domesticated, have an innate ability to sense the medicinal compounds within each plant. This is called Zoopharmacognosy
Some plants have anti-bacterial qualities, some anti-inflammatory, some stimulating, soothing, calming or up-lifting.
Cats know exactly what it is they need, so will chose to either inhale, ingest or roll in these plants.
Providing your cat with a natural indoor herb garden can have a positive effect on how they FEEL and therefore how they BEHAVE.
Our herb garden contains 5 of the most popular dried herbs and flowers for cats.
By placing a handful of each of these herbs on mat in a quiet area, you cat is able to go and help themselves to feel good whenever they need to.
How may it help my cat?
It can help them feel:
Stress is at the root of most behaviour and health problems
Whether your cat is an indoor cat or enjoys the freedom of the great outdoors, your cat will experience stress.
Stress is a normal part of life. Yet in excess, it can lead to both health and behaviour problems.
Excess stress can impact on the well-being of both you and your cat.
What is stressing out my cat?
Cats are individuals. So what one cat find stressful, won’t faze another cat.
Here are some of events/experiences that can disrupt a cat’s sense of peace:
sharing a home with another cat
our work/life stresses (yes they absorb our emotions and dramas too!)
loud sudden bangs
change in home
a new cat in the area
a new pet in the home
chemicals used for cleaning
not enough personal space
thunder and lightning
The list is endless.
Give your cat the gift of relaxation
It can take several days for the stress hormones to go back to their normal levels in the body.
Giving your cat the opportunity to calm themselves with an indoor herb garden during or after a stressful event could greatly reduce their stress levels.
