Keep Kitty Happy with Feliway

Posted on 26 January 2016 in Cat Wellness & Health

Feliway is a popular cat-calming drug-free product that is proven to help with issues like anxiety, urine marking, and unwanted furniture-scratching. We used Feliway with great success with our shelter cats to help reduce anxiety which was exacerbating a bladder-stone problem.

Our cats Arby and Alex were given up by their family of 7+ years after the owners had a baby and Arby began urinating outside of the litter box. When the problem continued at our home, we brought Arby to the vet, where he was diagnosed with painful stones which made urintating uncomfortable. A change in diet helped tremendously. On the vet's reccomendation, we also tried using Feliway.

Feliway mimics natural calming pheremones in cats. When you purchase Feliway in liquid form, you use a diffuser to distribute the scent throughout your home. The product linked here is a 48ML container with a reusable electric defuser that you plug right into the wall.

For humans, Feliway is odorless. We didn't notice it all, except for the way it helped out our kitties during times of stress and anxiety. Along with the change in diet, we believe Feliway really helped Arby with his issue and he stopped "missing" the litterbox with these two changes.

We put the electric outlet on a timer when we used Feliway, so it was distributed during the daytime. This helped save money and conserve the pheremones for when they were really needed.

If you've got a cat with behavioral issues, be sure to seek advice from a vet in case the problems have a medical basis, as we saw with Arby. Give Feliway a try to see if it might help your kitty like it helped our sweet Arby.
