From grouchy to friendly – senior cat Helena’s transformation will surprise you

Posted 2019-05-23

Achoo! Sneezing, itching, watery eyes, congestion, infection, digestive upset… blech!  These are all common symptoms of allergies that can make anyone your feel uncomfortable. Even our darling fur companions.

When Helena had been reclusive and grumpy for a very long period, her mom almost thought this was how her senior cat was now going to be. Little did she know it was something she could change.

Some other symptoms of allergies which may be less obvious are chewing their feet or base of their tail, shaking their ears, and hair loss. These symptoms can all be an indicator of environmental or food allergies. 30% of our furry friends with food allergies also show signs of environmental allergies, so it can be difficult to distinguish between the two. It is also important to note that your furry friend’s allergies can develop at any age!

Thankfully, we were able to help Helena, a 12 yr old kitty, to feel more like herself- physically and emotionally by eliminating some of these symptoms. She was showing signs of both and her mom had a suspicion that they were flea allergies! Helena’s Mom kept us closely updated on her little one’s condition, shortly after she got started on our gentle herbal blends. Helena has had some significant improvements, and is feeling much happier these days. Her symptoms have cleared up enough so that she wanted the pets and rubs from her hoomans again!

Just wanted to let you know, thanks to Stimmune and Old Timer, Helena’s skin is clear, her fur is lush and soft, and she’s much more interactive and loving. She must feel better, she sat on my husband’s lap this morning for the first time in 8 years!

Helena’s mom has made a twitter account for her kitties. One of the cats is Argyle Mewlsby and she makes the cutest tweets. Her kitty siblings, Grouchy Helena and Granmma Doyle (yes, that’s what she calls them 🙊) get NHV supplements.

We are absolutely over the moon that Helena is once more a happy kitty again, and living her best allergy-free life. We will keep a close eye on her condition, and tweak and make any changes as needed.

Supplements for Allergy Relief

Helena is on a holistic regimen, to help keep her comfortable and soothe the unpleasant symptoms feline allergies can cause.

Stimmune is an all-natural, vet-formulated supplement that will help your pet deal with seasonal allergies and allergies caused by poor diet or lifestyle. Stimmune can also help cats with allergic reactions related to fleas, dermatitis, insect bites, food, and exposure to chemicals and drugs. Allergies in cats often occur when allergens are inhaled, ingested, or absorbed by the body. When this occurs, the immune system becomes compromised and your kitty needs a boost to fight allergens.

This senior cat also takes Old TimerIt is a gentle herbal blend that helps to soothe inflamed joints and ease the pain arthritis can cause. Arthritis is a degenerative disease most likely to affect the knees, shoulders, ankles, elbows, and hips. It’s a debilitating condition that can eventually lead to hip dysplasia in cats, and impaired mobility.

The Ouch Away Spray has been really helpful for bringing topical relief and making this transformation for this senior cat possible!
