The Feliway Friends diffuser has been designed and scientifically proven to help reduce tension and conflicts between cats sharing a home. If you notice your cats are frequently chasing, biting, fighting, hissing or growling with each other as well as showing less obvious signs of tension for example blocking each other, stalking, hiding from each other, shaking or trembling as an avoidance response to their housemate Feliway Friends may help to reduce these signs of conflict and tension.
Feliway Friends is a synthetic copy of the cat appeasing pheromone (CAP) naturally produced by a nursing mother to her kittens after birth. This pheromone helps the kittens feel safe and secure and promotes a bond between them and their mother. Feliway Friends is clinically proven to help reduce tension and conflicts between cats in multi-cat households.

How do I change the Feliway Friends Diffuser Refill?
Just unscrew the old vial from the diffuser unit and replace with the new refill and plug it into an electric socket, then leave the diffuser switched on continuously to ensure a calm environment. The Feliway Friends diffuser should be plugged into the room where your cats spend most of their time, you may need to use several diffusers, if your cats have separate or distant resting areas.
Each diffuser refill covers an area of around 50-70m2. Avoid plugging in the diffuser under shelves or behind doors, curtains or furniture. Replacing the vials monthly with the Feliway Friends Refill, to provide continuous support to your cats.
Additional advice to ensure harmony within your cats lives:
Taking time out is an essential part of a cats' everyday life so secret hideaways are important. Cats are also natural climbers so it is important for your cat to be able to rest and observe its surroundings from high places, such as the top of scratching posts or cupboards or high shelves.
Ensure that you have enough food bowls, water bowls and litter trays for all the cats in your household. Ideally you should have one per cat plus one extra. Ensure these are placed in different areas of your home so each cat can access the resources without necessarily having to interact with another cat.
Always ensure your cat(s) have free access to their resources (food, litter trays, water, bed, outdoor areas). Restricting resources can cause issues in the home.
If you have a cat flap, ensure neighbouring cats are not entering your home, as this can be very upsetting for the resident cat or cats. Using a SureFlap microchip cat flap will stop other cats gaining entry.
