The Happy Cat stressfree Valerian filled Kicker contains pure ground Valerian Root, a natural feline attractant that most cats find irresistible. Cats typically show a series of behaviours including sniffing, licking, nibbling, rubbing and rolling. This initial, attractive phase may last a few minutes and then cats settle down for the next phase. This attractive quality of Happy Cat stressfree makes it easy to use and useful to enrich a cat’s environment, facilitate play and support new learning.
By smelling and eating the Valerian cats also get to experience the relaxation aspect. Happy Cat stressfree helps cats to relax mind and body, supporting the action of GABA, a chemical in the brain (neurotransmitter) responsible for relaxing the nervous system. This relaxing quality means Valerian can play a useful role in helping to ease anxiety, promote relaxation, and relieve a variety of stress-related disorders commonly seen in cats.
Kittens under 3 – 6 months old may not be attracted to Happy Cat stressfree. We are, however, aware of exceptions. Try again in a few months and remember to create a safe, warm space for your cat to fully enjoy and benefit from the experience.
