Last autumn, a couple of weeks before Nov 5th, I realised how terrified of fireworks Poppy is. She was on my lap when one went off outside & she wet herself. It was absolutely dreadful for her & she had only been with us for 3 months by then. I have all the feliway etc, but it got so bad that my vets prescribed Xanax which really zombie her out. I really don't want to go down that route again this year as fireworks / Divali etc seems to go on for 3 weeks or so, then again at Christmas, then thunder etc I know you can buy c.d's to de sensitize dogs, would this work with a cat? I want to leave a long time, so we can work towards this patiently. I do not have a room without windows - the bathroom is the worst place as I have a huge skylight. She runs to me for comfort & climbs under my clothes, then wees. I know she can't help it but, it isn't particularly nice I also worry about what happens when there is thunder overnight. I am positive that her previous owners left her out no matter what. At 12 she didn't know how to walk properly on carpet - her claws were not long, just perpetually out. It took 3 months before she would put them away when walking. It breaks my heart to see her so scared & she deserves some serious loving & spoiling. I hope someone can help. She is healthy, no reason for the weeing apart from the fear. She spends every day curled up next to me - could really do without it in this weather, but, how can you say no to this face?
