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 utilises is a replication of the pheromone that cats leave naturally when they are feeling comfortable in their environment. Everytime 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, fireworks, 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: new family member as a baby or a new partner, new job making you more absent from the home, etc. Cats are very sensitive to routine and stable environment.
Stress can lead to unhappy behavior such as less interaction with you, hiding away, general mischief or even scratching or spraying.
An easy to fit plug in refill for your Feliway diffuser. New Feliway diffusers are not compatible with the old refills and must only be used with the new refills.
How do I use the Feliway Diffuser?
Just screw the vial onto the diffuser unit and plug it into an electric socket, then leave the diffuser switched on continuously to keep your cat relaxed and friendly.
The diffuser should be plugged into the room where the cat spends most of its time. Each diffuser refill covers an area of around 50-70m2. Avoid plugging in the diffuser under shelves or behind doors, curtains or furniture.
