I finally decided to buy one for Apollo at my latest visit to the pet store when I refilled his food. They had the plug-ins and some other stuff, but I figured I'd try the collar first. The guy that worked there was talking about his cat and how he flips out every time he tries to put a collar on him. That reminded me of the horror show the first time I ever put a collar on Apollo.. I stood there for a good 5 minutes debating on whether or not it'd be worth the $15.
Finally I was like, what the hey, maybe if I give him enough treats while I put the collar on him, he'll be fine.
So Apollo was positively fascinated by the collar as soon as I took it out of the box. He kept sniffing at it and rolling around on the floor. (Those things are messy, I read that there's some loose powder when you first take them out of the bag, but I had no idea there would be SO MUCH of it.)
Got it on him without a problem. It's only been 2 days now, but I'm wondering if what I'm seeing in Apollo is just coincidence or if it's the effects of the collar? I mean it should take more than 2 days right?
First of all I wanted to know if anyone here has used these products and if they've worked for you. Are they supposed to make your cat kind of itchy? I noticed he's been scratching at his neck a little more than usual, but not to the point of where I'm concerned about it. He has no sores or any kind of visible reaction. I almost wonder if his fleas are back and maybe they're hiding out under his collar now.
Also, it's fine if I leave it on him for a whole month right? I mean I'm that desperate to have some kind of change in his behavior, lol.
I don't know anything about these "calming" products, but I know a LOT of people here have talked about them and suggested them for Apollo in general. Thanks, lol.
