My Experience with Jackson Galaxy Cat Drops
One of the many products in the collection of Jackson Galaxy cat drops is his Safe Space For Cats. I have been using Safe Space for Cats Drops for several years. This formula is designed for cats that feel jumpy, nervous or scared. Jumping at noises, running away and hiding are clear signs of anxiety but there can be many other signs such as peeing on things outside the litter box or acting grumpy or anti-social. Pulling out fur is another sign that can indicate anxiety. Of course you should always get your cat checked by a veterinarian first to rule out any medical concerns with any of these behaviors. If no medical condition is found, try Safe Space for Cats or one of the other drops in this line that is appropriate for your cat’s behavior.
My Success With Safe Space For Cats Drops For Jumpiness and Peeing
I use Safe Space for Cats Drops for my Norwegian Forest Cat boy who was very jumpy and nervous. He was a rescue and who knows what happened in his past. He was sulky, nervous and anti-social. He also started peeing on everything. He peed on carpets, bath mats (his favorite), clothes, even the bed! It was awful. We took him to the vet multiple times and they could never find a cause. It seemed to be mental rather than due to a physical condition.
He was prescribed a liquid anti-anxiety liquid that had to be mixed at a local compounding pharmacy. The stuff was very expensive and he HATED it. He refused to take it even mixed in food. When I happened to taste some of it when it was on my finger I discovered why he hated it. It tasted like poison! Ever since then I have been reluctant to give my cats prescription medications. Some taste bad. Some don’t work and many have potential side effects. They are also expensive and require a prescription. Why not use a natural product that you can order online and get anytime without a prescription? Why not give your pet a natural product like this that can be applied to the fur instead of forced down their throat? This has no smell and my cats don’t run from it in fear. It looks and smells like water. They don’t like water on their fur but a few drops of water is a lot better than something terribly bitter that tastes like poison they are forced to ingest.
With the drops applied to his fur twice per day as well as a Sentry Calming Collar, he is a perfect boy now. He is truly happy, follows me around, cuddles and plays with his ‘siblings’ and seems all around content. He does not pee on things except maybe once or twice a year instead of every single day.
Jackson Galaxy Solutions Safe Space for Cats was developed specifically to deal with urine marking in type of situation.
Success With Jackson Galaxy Cat Drops for Pulling Out Fur
My other boy, my sweet, orange tabby, also developed anxiety last year and started pulling out his fur. We still do not know why but it may have had something to do with the development of his heart murmur or his food intolorances. In any case, it was probably made worse when we adopted another cat. He is now happy and they get along but at the time it was traumatic for him. I tried the Safe Space for Cats drops to see if they would help and they did! it was amazing. I also ordered Jackson Galaxy Obsession Solution drops. I tried them and they helped but honestly the Safe Space For Cats seems to work better so we are sticking with that. It is handy to have one product for both boys! Now instead of large chunks of fur all over the floor and a cat with bald spots, his fur has all grown back and he is soft, fluffy and happy. It has eliminated 95% of his fur pulling at least. I can’t recommend this product highly enough. It is wonderful!

“Spirit Essences” or “Solutions”? What is the Difference and Has the Formula Changed?
Jackson Galaxy’s cat drops are now labeled as Jackson Galaxy Solutions. Until recently the label said Jackson Galaxy Spirit Essences. Regardless of the label, these are the exact same products. The same formula is used with the new label. The company mentions that they are continuing to refine their formulas however so there may be a new ingredient added to certain drops over time.
How Should These Drops Be Used?
Solutions cat drops can be used in several different applications. They can be:
- Applied as drops smoothed on your cat’s fur.
- Added to cat’s drinking water.
- Added to cat food.
- Sprayed around the home.
I only apply the drops to my cat’s fur. It seems to me that having the drops on the fur is more effective than spraying it around the home since the drops would get used up faster that way. I also don’t prefer to put them in food or water for several reasons.
I don’t like adding anything to my cat’s water because I want to make sure they drink lots of water. Lack of water is a leading cause of kidney disease in cats and can also lead to UTI’s and other health problems. Kidney disease can become fatal and is a leading killer of domestic cats. Some cats may not mind these drops in their water but I just don’t like to go that route.
I also don’t want to waste the drops on the other cats that don’t need them. If I put the drops in their water, all four of my cats would be getting them.
The problem goes for food. If I put drops on their wet food, I don’t know that the intended cats are the ones who will get them. I also don’t know if the smell of the food would overpower the drops and impede their effectiveness.
How Many Drops Should be Used and How Should They Be Applied?
I use more drops than directed and use them only twice per day rather than three or four times per day as directed. If you are just starting out with the drops it may be most effective to use them more often but it is not necessary for my cats.
I put the drops in my palm and then use the fingers of my other hand to dab into the drops and then smooth them on the fur around the head, neck, back and front legs of my cat. I put them closer to his front half where he can smell them better (I imagine…I really don’t know but that is how I apply them).
Speaking of which, I need to go give my boys their drops right now.
