I finally did it and I realise now (hindsight is such an accurate science) that I should’ve done this years ago. I bought BeAnne Duvet a Thundershirt.
We are currently living through 3 days of storms (a feisty Force 11) and the house is shaking and rattling while outside buckets of water are being hurled at us. It is also very noisy.
But life is good! For the first time ever, BeAnne has not spent her day under the towel rail in the bathroom shaking.
Obviously Monster is intrigued at this new fashion and, having never suffered a day’s anxiety in his life (apart from when his battery-operated food bowl failed to open at 3am – WORST DAY EVER and yes he has five meals a day, so shoot me! You don’t have to live with him), he is not getting one.
BeAnne even managed to scrounge at lunchtime and that is how I know she is feeling fine while Hell continues to erupts outside.
After feeding horses, feeding horses again, checking ponies, feeding more horses and throwing horses out into fields where horses belong, I went to my she-shed/shudio to make a sheep and Her Maj happily came along too.
Meanwhile, Monster’s anxiety has reached fever-pitch.
So all is good. I am glad we have this amazing invention and I just wish I had bought a Thundershirt sooner.
Just so you know, BeAnne is not wearing it 24/7, though to be honest in this weather I think she should but the instructions say she must have a break to see if it fits ok and there is no skin irritation.
Edit: The Thundershirt back on now! She loves it. Monster is so jealous!
Another edit: A little known fact – a Thundershirt is a f***er to put on when you’ve had a gin, or two, or three……
So you know – here to help!
