Helps relieve cat stress and anxiety
The Feliway Diffuser (also referred to as the Feliway Plug In) is a cat pheromone diffuser. When cats feel safe they rub their heads against objects that are in their surroundings and leave a substance behind called facial pheromones. This substance helps the cat identify their "safe" locations around your home. If there aren't any of these familiar marks in your cat's surroundings, their anxiety can increase. Cats are very susceptible to stress, anxiety and fears, and even small changes (like a change in routine, moving home, rearranging furniture or new family members) can upset them. The Feliway Diffuser spreads a synthetic copy of the feline facial pheromone around your home, which has been clinically proven to help cats during stressful situations. It can also help solve unwanted behavioural problems.
Like the diffuser, Feliway Spray can help prevent unwanted behaviour such as scratching and spraying. By spraying Feliway onto doorways, cat flaps and other prominent areas around the house, the pheromones spread making your cat feel more comfortable and reducing anxiety. You can also use Feliway Spray on your cat carrier to make trips to the vet (or travel in general) a much more pleasant experience.
The cat appeasing pheromone in Feliway Friends is a synthetic copy of the substance that nursing mothers produce to make their kittens feel safe. No matter the cat's age, this pheromone can always be sensed and provides a calming effect on them. Feliway Friends has been designed specifically to help reduce tension and conflict in a multi-cat household.
This latest product by Feliway is aimed specifically at the unwanted behaviour of scratching. Cats have a natural need to scratch as this helps keep their nails short, but it can also be a sign of stress. When cats scratch a particular surface, they excrete a different type of pheromone known as feline interdigital semiochemical. Feliscratch mimics this pheromone and can be used to mark places around the house that your cat is allowed to scratch (like their scratching post). Feliscratch has been clinically proven to help reduce unwanted scratching behaviour in cats.
