We want to help make your kitty’s vet experience as positive and comforting as possible. That is why we came up with the idea of “Kitty Kozies”.
What exactly is a Kitty Kozy, you ask? Well, essentially it is a large piece of soft fabric that can be draped over your cat’s carrier. The fabric has been sprayed with something called Feliway. Feliway is a synthetic cat pheromone.
From the Feliway website:
“By mimicking the cat’s natural facial pheromones, Feliway creates a state of familiarity and security in the cat's local environment. As a result, Feliway can be used to help comfort and reassure cats while they cope with a challenging situation and help prevent or reduce the stress caused by a change in their environment.”
The idea is to help envelop your beloved pet in a cocoon of protected warmth and soothing scent. The sheet will help keep potentially stressful things such as dogs and other cats out of sight and out of mind. A Kitty Kozy turns your cat's carrier into an aromatic kitty cave!
We know a trip to the vet isn't always at the top of your kitty's list of fun things to do. This is just one of the ways we make sure you and your feline friend are well taken care of at our hospital. Ask to try out a Kitty Kozy the next time you visit!
