Feliway Comfort Zone Diffusers & Refills | PetSmart
I recommend quite often in my practice. It is a product that releases something called a pheromone which helps to relieve stress and anxiety in cats. You can buy Feliway as a spray or as a diffuser (like a Glade Plugin). In this review, we'll look atwhat the scientific research says and also whay my personal experiences with the product are.
Calm your cats with Feliway pheromone diffusers
I have a 2 cat household. My oldest is now 17 and is a VERY nervous cat, probably since she was abandoned before her eyes were open, plus she is a Torttie. My new addition is an orange tabby who adopted us about two years ago. Don't know age since she is also a stray. My old girl was having a hard time and had started urinating outside her box. A friend had suggested getting the Feliway Diffuser. It is quite expensive in Canada, but I finally broke down and got it. WOW What a difference!!! Both cats are much calmer and I can finally pet my Torttie without fear of being badly scratched. Wish I had gotten this product years ago.
Do those feliway things really work? | The Cat Site
After running extensive tests to determine why my rescued cats were having erratic bouts of diarrehea and vomiting, and getting back all negative results, our vet suggested I try Feliway diffusers. She explained that although undetectable by humans, the scent the diffuser releases is that of the "feel good" feline pheromone. The vet thought that although the cats have a pretty great forever home, their very rough start in life might have made them extra nervy when unfamiliar people come to our home. As I had just completed 6 months of various repairs at the house, with many repair and service people in and out, it certainly was a possibility that the cats had experienced extended stress. So, I deployed Feliway diffusers in the 3 rooms the cats visit most in the house. After 2 weeks, I noticed the cats were not acting as startled by typical household noises such as the ring of my cell phone, the opening and closing of the door to the garage, etc. It's been several months, now, and I swear by those diffusers. My cats are compatively calm. Diffuser set can be expensive if not purchased online at EntirelyPets. Now I purchase the set of 3 or 6 diffuser refills at a time. Periodically, I also purchase Feliway spray, which I use on the cats' blankets and in their carrier 30 minutes before I put them in when we have to go to the vet. I consider these Feliway products effective, and buying them on the EntirelyPets website saves me money.FELIWAY® MultiCat diffuser should be used for at least 30 days.
