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.
- 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.
Great for cats that travel, stay in catteries or are visiting the vet. It can be sprayed onto bedding and carriers in times when your cat might be experiencing more stress than usual. Apply to the environment ( carrier, bed) 15 minutes before introducing the cat.
