Calming Chews for Jan ... er, Cats

BUDDY:  We've had a very eventful few days away from blogging. 

MARCUS:  After this past month, especially these last two weeks, Jan says her old body is ready for arrest.

MERCI:  No, no, Marcus.  A rest.  Two words, not one. We'll give you an update on Sam's condition and Jan's mishaps in a day or two.

BUDDY:  Don't bother asking.  Our lips are zipped until we post.  Besides, the felines want to do a post today. 

Cyndi.
 CYNDI:  Is that for me?  It smells good.  What is it?

Micah.
MICAH:  I think it's a Pet Naturals of Vermont Calming chew.  Yes, this definitely tastes familiar.  We've had them before.

CYNDI:  Then why did Jan volunteer us to review them?

RUSTY:  You know how she is.  She forgot, but then she thought it was a brilliant slip, Micah, because they might help you,stop fighting with Percy.   


PERCY:  They are supposed to help manage everyday stress and behavioral issues naturally.  We've sure had a lot of stress around here since Sam got sick.

 Key Benefits -
    Helps encourage relaxation and calm behavior.
    Does not sedate or cause a change in personality.
    Ideal for times of high stress like holidays or trips to the vet.
    Naturally delicious and veterinary formulated.

CYNDI:   The active ingredients are Thiamine (Viratmin B1), a Colostrum calming complex, and something called L-Theanine.  The inactive ingredients are brewers yeast, calcium sulfate, canola oil, chicken liver flavor, citric acid, glycerin, maltodextrin, mixed tocopherols, propionic acid, rosemary extract, silicon dioxide, sodium alginate, soy lecithin and vegetable oil.

MICAH:  The colostrum calming complex is made from proteins supposed to support cognitive function and manage everyday stress.  The vitamin B1 is to affect the central nervous system to help calm and relax anxious animals.

PERCY:  There are five of us and 30 chews in the package.  Since we have all been stressed, there weren't enough to find out if they would help help stop you from attacking me, Micah. 

Rusty.
RUSTY:  You guys can attack each other.  I'm going to enjoy my Calming chew for today. 

Percy.

PERCY:  I only eat mine if Jan breaks it in half for me.  It tastes better delivered with a dollop of servitude.

Taylor.
TAYLOR:  I'm still new at this.  What am I supposed to say?

RUSTY;  You're supposed to be honest about the product.

TAYLOR:  I licked my Pet Naturals of Vermont Calming chew and it tasted so good I ate it and asked for a second.  Jan didn't give me one.  Why is she so stingy with treats?

CYNDI:  I think she helps herself to some when we aren't looking.

PERCY:  There are two types of calming chews for cats - with or without the vitamin B1 and colostrum calming.  There are also two types for dogs.  We should get a case for Marcus.

We were provided with a bag of the product by Chewy.com but we were not paid for this review.  Any opinions expressed are solely ours.

  1. I've had those and I like them - but neither I nor my human can tell if they actually make me any calmer!

  5. Wow, I didn't know they made chews that helped calm everyone down. We need a whole truck load in our house - for cats and a dog and maybe even a human if they make them for humans. LOL!

  7. Most of us liked them, but we are a big family like you so there are not enough to see if we calmed down. The one cats who needs calming won't eat treats.

  18. I discovered these wonderful treats at Dillon's (local Kroger chain store) and they have been soo helpful when a kitty stresses in a car ride for instance... Thanks for reviewing them!
