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.
The Feliway spray helps prevent issues like scratching and spraying, and makes travel and visiting the vet less stressful.
How do I use the Feliway spray?
Simply shake the bottle and spray Feliway once a day on doorways, cat-flaps, window sills and prominent objects around the house, paying particular attention to where you cat likes to nap and spend their time.
To prevent marking if it already occurred, spray Feliway on marked areas after thorough cleaning of the zone.
Use Feliway Spray in the cat carrier to help comfort your cat on stressful car journeys or going to the vet, please always wait about 15 minutes before letting your cat near any sprayed areas.
