Thunder? What thunder?
Walter reacts with flight and hide to loud noises like vehicles, thunder, fireworks, and plastic bags, strangers in the house like most of the other inhabitants and the repairmen, and certain objects like the baby gate, vacuum (not even on), and moving sheets and blankets (making the bed).
Calming calms her, yes, Walter is a she. The regular dose takes the edge off her anxiety. A double dose calms her enough that many of her anxiety triggers become minor irritants. A triple dose leaves her without a care in the world.
We're so glad that these have worked out for you and Walter! Thanks for the thoughtful review!
