My kitty was stressed out when we brought him home from the shelter. I sprayed some pheromone spray from PetSmart and it seemed to help. We spent a lot of time with him that day trying to make him feel loved so it could have been the extra love, spray or both. It was about $10 for the bottle

Has her territory been invaded in some way, by another cat, or by furniture being moved around? Have any of her habits been changed, her food bowl moved, her ability to walk in/out of the home?

How does the stress show?

My sister's cat got really stressed when she changed apartment. This showed by her pooping next to her litter box (rather than in). The plug really help.

One of my cats got really stressed when we brought more cats inside the house. She started loosing hair, changed her sleeping habits, was generally grumpy. We're still figuring this one out....

I don't know of any food for stress relief, but there are a lot of supplements. I used one by Homeopet called Anxiety Relief. There's also something called Rescue Remedy. Both are drops that you can add to wet food or water. I wasn't impressed with the RR. It didn't seem to have any effect at all. The Anxiety Relief may have, but it's hard to say, because I had a Feliway diffuser too.

There are also a lot of treats that are supposed to be for stress relief. I've never tried them. My vet gave me a NurtureCalm pheromone collar. I couldn't get it on Celia; the collar didn't fasten easily, so I needed two hands, which left me none to hold on to the wriggly cat. However, my vet said that of the thirty or so people who'd tried it, only one found it ineffective.

Well when i typed that she didn't had stress cause i wanted to prevent it. oh thanksgiving day at least i'm sure of she seem she was stress from not seeing me. I'll Homeopet this time. when she gets stress she gets a flare up. nothing works really but it seems to be stress related. :\ now i don't know how to get rid of her pain cause antibiotics don't help much appearntly or prescription food.
I'll try homeopet hopefully i can find it.

Amazon sells an herbal supplement called HomeoPet. You could check Amazon for other stuff and see if it is available in your area or order from them.

Oh yes - that's the one I've used. My independent pet store carries Homeopet, and my local Petco does too. There's a whole line of Homeopet products. I've used the Digestive Upsets, and I think that one was also having at least some positive effect.

Oh yay! I'm so glad that she's better! I hope that means that the Anxiety Relief really helped. I don't remember what the directions said about dosing, but I gave it every day until I used up the bottle. I think you can just give it for a while and then decrease frequency though.
