Questions:
Will my cat get hot wearing the shirt all day ?
ThunderShirts are made from cotton which is a breathable fabric. This has no lining and is not designed to be used as a coat. However, always monitor your cat for any signs of overheating such as heavy panting or tongue hanging out of the mouth and make sure there is amply water bowls for them.
Do I have to put it on him every day ?
The answer depends on the cause of anxiety. If it is from thunder storms then listen to the forecast and have the thunder shirt ready. If it is travel anxiety then only when you are about to travel.
My cat gets over excited (scatty), will a ThunderShirt help her ?
Yes it will. The gentle pressure around the ribs release endorphins which slow the heart rate and breathing leading to a calmer cat.
What if it doesn't work on my cat ?
The manufacturers say that ThunderShirts work in about 80% of cases. From our experience it is closer to 95% success rate. ThunderShirts also have a 45 day moneyback guarantee. So if the result isn't what you were expecting, and as long as the shirt is in a saleable condition (including the original packaging) we can give you a full refund.
It looks complicated to put on.
Don't be phased. Once you have done it a few times you will soon become an expert.
Can it be put on too tight ?
Yes it can. Common sense and following the instructions will dictate what is best. Always observe your cat for signs of discomfort.
How long before a storm do I need to put the ThunderShirt on ?
There is no set time. Some people put the shirt on first thing in the morning, others wait to see what the weather is doing on the day.
How quickly will it take to start working ?
Depending on the cat and the level of anxiety, many owners see reductions or complete elimination of symptoms with the very first use. With others, it may take two or three usages of ThunderShirt to see results.
Can the ThunderShirt be washed ?
ThunderShirt is made with durable, washable fabric. When necessary, ThunderShirt may be washed in a regular cycle using regular laundry detergent and cold water. Hang to dry.
My cat seems to fall over when I put a thundershirt on… why ?
Most cats have never had any clothing placed on them and cats are very sensitive to tactile stimulus. When first wearing a ThunderShirt, many cats do what we call the "Freeze & Flop". They appear to be immobilized and lay on their side. Don't worry...They are not suffering any discomfort; many cats are actually purring while they do this. If your cat does the Freeze & Flop, simply give her some time to adjust and encourage her to move by bribing her with food. Most cats quickly learn that they can still move freely.
