Cats don’t get high; they just get higher
This is the content I know everyone has been waiting on. I (really my boyfriend and I), adopted a second cat. So far, he’s been great. Cuddly, loving, content, cute.
However, my resident cat, Minnie, who I’ve had for 12 years, isn’t being as cute. It’s been about a month, and she is still a little hissy, and swatty. This past weekend she starting stalking him with the sole intent of messing with him.
Things weren’t *terrible*, but they definitely weren’t great. Honestly, I was probably more stressed than any of the cats were. Action had to be taken.
After some research, my boyfriend decided we should get pheromones a try. Pheromones are “a type of chemical communication that all cats use to interact with each other and the world around them. The “messages” are released from special glands around their bodies.” The idea is that the pheromones we buy will mimic the pheromones that cats emit when they are feeling calm. It works on cats’ brains to calm them down and help relieve stress and anxiety.
We got 2 plug-in wall diffusers. I installed them at 9pm on a Sunday. By Monday morning, I could tell a noticeable difference. By Monday night, Minnie was starting act with her normal habits and mannerisms.
It’s not quite perfect yet (she chased him earlier today after he sneezed), but it’s much better. It’s not making her high, its mimicking calm-feeling pheromones. Besides, cats don’t get high, they just get higher.
