You may remember, we got a new cat earlier this summer.
Rocky is a sweet cat, but he had a few behavioral issues that we have been working on getting rid of, like scratching the furniture and “nursing” on anything soft. (including us, yuck… )
Pets can get stressed when their environment changes, like a new addition to the family, (pet or human) or during the holiday season or when you have different people and thier pets in your home. Or maybe just a change in their general schedule from being left at home for longer periods of time while you are traveling. All of these changes can cause stress for your pet and could trigger misbehavior. Comfort Zone® with Feliway® can help reduce stress-related behavior in cats by mimicking their natural pheromones that help them feel calm and comfortable in their environment.
- Comfort Zone® with Feliway® products are 95% effective at reducing scratching and urine marking for cats.
- The diffuser continuously releases an odorless vapor that mimics the soothing feline facial pheromone. Plug it in where your cat spends most of its time to keep it calm. It is especially helpful for use in multi-cat households to help keep the cats all relaxed around each other.
I have been using the diffuser for over 30 days and there has been a definitely noticeable decrease in the nursing behavior as well as the furniture scratching. (I have been diverting him to the scratching post with very good results.)
Comfort Zone® with Feliway® also comes in a spray that I would like to try. You can spray it on places where the cats mark or scratch. And you can also use it in pet carriers before taking your cat anywhere in the car. (I would love to test how effective the spray is for use in the car. Anyone tried it and gotten positive results?)
Here is a picture I took of Rocky just this morning… He certainly looks relaxed doesn’t he? (Maybe too relaxed, ha ha…)
