How It Works
With its patent-pending design, the new Thundershirt for Cats applies gentle, constant pressure to the torso. This pressure has a dramatic calming effect for cats if they are anxious or fearful. Thundershirt has already helped many tens of thousands of dogs around the world, and is recommended by thousands of veterinarians and dog trainers. And the early results for cats look just as impressive. Cat owners and veterinarians are amazed by the positive impact a Thundershirt can have with cats.
As for WHY Thundershirt’s gentle pressure works to calm dogs and cats, anxiety experts believe that pressure has a calming effect on the nervous system and may release calming hormones like endorphins or oxytocins. Using pressure to relieve anxiety has been a common practice for years.
- Parents use swaddling to calm an inconsolable newborn infant.

- Veterinarians use pressure to relax cattle when they are administering vaccinations.
