Feliway can help your cat adjust better to modern living by creating a supportive environment to help deal with unwanted feline behaviour.
Feliway is a synthetic copy of the `feline facial pheromone' or `happy marker' that cats leave behind when they rub their face on people, furniture, doorways and other objects in the home. It is a sign they feel comfortable and safe in their home environment.
When used in the cat's home environment, Feliway provides the same comforting effect as natural pheromones do when deposited by cats themselves.
Feliway is a non-sedative, non-systemic and so can be used safely alongside other types of medications.
Cats are at their most loving and content when they feel in control of their environment. Anything that interrupts this can unsettle them, such as moving, redecorating or bringing home a new baby or pet. Over time this can increase your cat's stress level, which can be expressed in various ways:
- Scratching or urine spraying in the home
- Less interaction with you / hiding away
- Anxiety when travelling
- Loss of appetite
Over time, if untreated, these behavioural changes may cause health related issues.
Using Feliway can help give your cat a feeling of calm and reassurance. It is clinically proven to help reduce inappropriate behaviours caused by stress.
The diffuser releases a comforting pheromone in the local environment and should be plugged into the room where the cat spends most of it's time, perfect for preventing unwanted behaviour at home.
