I agree, even ngative cats get upset going to the vet. I think it is the noise the car makes. I have found that driving over 50 mph sets them off. Homey talks all the way (15 miles). She says nooo way! Under 50mph, they are all calmer so I set the cruise and allow enough time to get there

Yes, an open-minded vet willing to look into new things is key. CCC has always been open to all of the information I've sent them over the years; willing to discuss issues etc. I am also the one who introduced them to Rescue Remedy! :) Barb+Smoky the House Puma+El Bandito Malito My cat the
