Anyone have good luck with calming collars?

My newest rescue is now bullying my previous bully. Coco is getting a taste of her own medicine she administered to a now past kitty, causing so much angst that we ended up medicating Coco to calm her down and stop the constant attacking. Now Bree is bullying Coco! We have had Bree for several weeks and I don't want to medicate her too, so was wondering what everyone's experience is with calming collars. Do they work or will it be a waste of money?

Hi, since no one has commented I thought I'd chime in.


In your situation, they're hammering out a pecking order which is normal. So long as they're not injuring one another, I'd let it play out. Calming collars certainly wouldn't *hurt*. It is said they take a while to kick in, but I've used them and notice some difference rather quickly, plus I think they smell nice too.


My best example of success with these collars is when I had to put my Princess on a plane all by herself to go to Little Rock ahead of my arrival a week later. Mind you... this was delivering her to a friend's house who had 6 other cats and poor Princess wouldn't even have her mama and so as such would be a great state.


We were in Little Rock for 8 months with all those cats and well, it was just not a good situation all around. It did seem to me that the collar helped, although I will say that my Lilah has always been a pretty adaptable girl. For a high-strung already temperamental cat, it might vary.

Thanks blondiegrl211! Things have settled down some, as you suggested. I did put some Fel-i-ways around for a couple weeks but with the nice weather now we opened some windows and that kind of negates the effects. We are at least on the right track so I and the cats are, happier.
