If you need to travel with your cat or simply take your cat to the vet, you may need to keep your cat from getting stressed out. That’s because a stressed out cat may lash out at you and rip your body to shreds, so consider keeping a cat calm a step in keeping yourself healthy and whole.

One way to calm a cat is through sprays that contain pheromones or natural flower essences that make your cat feel like it’s in a safe space. Then again, you may need some harder drugs to keep yourself safe after your cat flips out on you.

Experiment with different ways to calm your cat down before you actually need to keep your cat from stressing out. It’s better to be prepared and know what to expect than go into the unknown and hope for the best, which will probably turn out to be the worst.
