Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

As a breeder of Himalayan & Persian cats, I am frequently asked questions about feline healthcare. These discussions come up among breeders, with people getting a new pet, and with existing pet owners with questions about the care of felines of all ages. If you have a cat, dog or any other living thing - chances are at some point it will require some level of healthcare. Just like we get colds, so can cats. Just like we have allergies, so can cats. Just like we can have a nervous stomach, so can a cat.

I have literally spent hours researching information to address the questions discussed among both feline breeders and owners. But- let me clearly state that I am NOT a vet. nor I do not advocate abandoning normal vet care. More times than not, good vet care takes care of any problems. But there are clearly times when "something else" is perhaps needed or should be considered, if traditional methods have been tried and been unsuccessful.

In Spring 2010 a really nice woman who was getting a kitten from me was concerned about its flight to her, whether flying stresses the kittens. She told me she uses a holistic remedy for her dog and herself - for calming effects, and she suggested I might try it for kittens being shipped. I never did. Then in a single week I had the following chain of events that brought that recommendation back to mind:

A show breeder told me she never goes to a cat show without a holistic treatment in her bag to keep her cats calm.

A vet friend of mine had a cat with chronic diarrhea that didn't respond to traditional treatments but totaly recovered with a "holistic concoction" within two days!

A friend with a sick, aging cat had taken it to specialists and nothing done helped. She heard about YOUNG LIVING products from a friend of hers whose horse had totally recovered with YOUNG LIVING treatments, after traditional vet care had been unsuccessful. She tried them with her senior cat and it made a world of difference. So much so that she now takes various remedies for herself. And it is through her that I became aware of these products and have spent time researching the products and the company - and using them myself!

An issue of Cat Fancy magazine had an article about the benefits of certain holistic treatments.
