Feliway is an easy-to-use product that helps create a loving and comfortable home environment where your cat will spend more time with you.
This special scent (odourless to people and other animals) that Feliway utilizes is a replication of the pheromone that cats leave naturally when they are feeling comfortable in their environment.
Every time a cat rubs its nose against objects in the home, it leaves behind this pheromone to mark its territory.
Even small changes in your home can upset your cat and prevent them from leaving this pheromone, which in turn makes them feel less secure, and increases their stress.
Activities such as redecorating, moving the furniture, having guests, going to the cattery and moving home will remove these natural pheromones for your cat, causing it stress.
Your cat may also be affected by any change in your home organisation and schedule: a new family member as a baby or a new partner, a new job making you more absent from the home, etc. Cats are very sensitive to routine and stable environment.
Stress can lead to unhappy behaviour such as less interaction with you, hiding away, general mischief or even scratching or spraying.
Using Feliway will help maintain the scent that gives your cat the feeling of peace and calm and reduce the stress that your cat experiences, creating a home where you and your cat will always be 'happy together.
By mimicking the cats natural facial pheromones, Feliway creates a state of familiarity and security in the cat's local environment.
As a result, Feliway can be used to help comfort and reassure cats while they cope with a challenging situation and help prevent or reduce the stress caused by a change in their environment.
The development of Feliway created a new field in veterinary medicine: Pheromonatherapy.
Feliway is available in 2 convenient forms: an electric diffuser and a spray.
Feliway Spray helps prevent issues like scratching and spraying, and makes travel and visits to the vet less stressful.
Simply shake the bottle and spray Feliway once a day on doorways, cat-flaps, window sills and prominent objects around the house.
To prevent marking if it has already occurred, spray Feliway on marked areas after thorough cleaning of the area(s). For more details see scratching or spraying.
Use Feliway Spray in the cat carrier to help comfort your cat on stressful car journeys or going to the vet.
Always wait about 15 minutes before letting your cat near any sprayed areas.
Precautions: Keep out of reach of children. Ensure the bottle iskept upright at all times. Do not place near a source of heat or direct sunlight.
