It’s empty in here!
Very good, seems to do the job, my cat seems more relaxed
Took about 3 months to really help with the urinating and caterwauling. He still does it on occasion. Usually when one of the diffusers is really low. I know when it is time to change it immediately after a night of howling. He still plays and is really rambunctious. Still bites when excited but a lot less. It has worked to a point. Things are better, a lot better, but not perfect. He almost was an outdoor kitty. I have two diffusers now, considering a third for the back of the house.
Due to circumstances, my outside 8 year old female cat had to become an inside cat. Boy, was she angry! She hissed and growled at the dog constantly, was spraying against the windows and curtains, she even urinated on my bed. After a week of that, I decided to try the feliway diffuser. Within 24 hours there was a dramatic change. No more spraying, her and the dog get along again. She is calm and quite happy to be home. She went from hellcat to a pleasure to live with.
Given that this product is quite expensive for something that may be a frequent purchase, I wanted to be sure that it was effective. So far, early morning meowing around the house has stopped so the indications are good! Delivery: I couldn't believe this product which is in a small box was delivered in much bigger cardboard box that could have fit numerous other items - I know different suppliers are used for different items, but there is no reason to send small products in gigantic boxes.
Purchased this as 1 of my toyger boys was quite hyper and seemed alarmed at most things. His brother was quite laid back. Almost straight away he seems very relaxed and sits still long enough for us to stroke him which we couldn't do before. They have lived with us for 4 weeks now and this weekend has made quite a difference which can only be the feliway. Recommended
Without this my two lads can get very tetchy with each outher - this keeps the peace.
I wouldn't have said my indoor cat was at all stressed, but he was prone to destructive behaviour - things like knocking things off shelves and leaping on to the tops of doors. I got some Feliway and within 12 hours he was like a different cat. He's still got character but he doesn't do things which risk hurting him any more. I noticed that if his behaviour deteriorated, the diffuser was invariably almost empty. I've learned to always keep a refill spare so there's no break in usage.
Our vet advised we purchase a couple of these as our older cat has started to leave us "little messages" outside his litter tray. She thought there might be a behavioural problem. Sadly, the plug-ins haven't sorted that out, we're still investigating. However, the two cats DO share a home with a Boston Terrier and, while the breed is known for its love of other animals, there ARE occasions when the atmosphere is a tad fraught! The cats, particularly the old boy, appear more chilled out!
My Ragdoll cat had a run in with my neighbours dogs a while ago and has not wanted to go outside since. She has seemed unhappy and not herself. On recommendation from my vet I decided to try Feliway. My cat was enthusiastically chewing at the unopened bottle lid before I removed it to insert the bottle into the plug in diffuser! The results are great, on day 2 of using the Feliway my ragdoll has gone outside, albeit for less than a minute but its a positive step forward. She is much more energetic and playful in the house and is purring more. This product is certainly worth trying if you have an unhappy or stressed cat. I had my doubts but it is indeed a brilliant product that works for my cat.
My Ragdoll was extremely poorly before Christmas so much so that when we took her to the Vet we didn't think that she would recover, she had kidney failure and thanks to our Vet Catherine (from Australia) a locum she was given excellent treatment and did make a recovery, we have since used a Feliway to give her a calm environment. It does work wonderfully.
My husband & I emigrated to the UK and a month before my two cats flew over from South Africa we plugged 3 Feliway plugs into our new cottage. Our cats settled in so quickly and they were so relaxed after a few days of being in their new home. They are both getting along with each other & even sharing our bed which was never the case before! We always make sure we have refills each month as we are so impressed with this product.
One of our 3 cats used to spend all of her time hiding under a bed, but since using the Feliway diffuser she is now happy and relaxed in the company of our other cats and joins us all on the sofa of an evening. We were amazed at the effect it had on her.
I moved from Lisbon to London and my 2 cats were transported by a pet moving company. They were in a van for almost a week, with other animals. I was afraid they might be very stressed, so I brought a refill and put the diffuser in the room where were all their things are, 24h before their arrival. My cats looked very scared as they came in, but a few minutes after opening their transport boxes they already had their tails up in the air. They started eating, drinking and using the litter box. I was surprised they adapted so quickly and they look calm and relaxed and back to their normal selves in such a short time. I highly recommend this product for any stressful situation your cats might have to go through. It really works!
I know some say it hasn't worked for them, but we have used this on & off over the years for a stressed & sick geriatric cat, a carpet scratching 'youth' & to introduce a new cat into our household and it has never failed to assist in all three situations. I would certainly recommend that you give it a try!
I have been buying the Feliway refills as my cat has been nervous from the first day we got her. She suffers from stress cystitis. Since we have been using Feliway there is a difference. We certainly know when it has run out.
I have two elderly cats how have always got on, but one of them has become ill which has made it difficult for them to get along. I brought the feliway refill and placed it in the lounge as this was the room we all use , it has eased tension and now both cats are happy to share the room again.
excellent product and a third cheaper than purchasing from my vets
I recently moved to the new house, used feliway and my cats settled the first day no anxiety what so ever. Moreover my breeding queens stopped spraying! This is a true miracle!
Unbelievably effective. I'm stunned and am about to re-order. My cats are in heaven!
Bought this and a spray as getting a new kitten and its mother and was worried about my existing cat. Was not a believer but have been converted as this was the easiest introduction of cats I have ever had.
I've just moved into a new house, and taken the large stray tom I had started feeding with me. Although he's used to spending most of his days outdoors, he did come inside for meals and naps. Now he's locked indoors for the first time in his life, while I keep him in for the recommended 4 weeks it takes to get cats used to a new home. He's been very stressed - and even hurt himself trying to squeeze through the letterbox. The Feliway diffuser made no difference at all, but the Feliway spray seems to have made him much calmer. He still sits at the window sometimes, but there is no crying or scrabbling, and no Houdini-style escape attempts. It's definitely worth a try!
I have two cats and use Feliway on a regular basis. It really helps to keep them both calm in stressful situations. I spray the cat carrier before visits to the vet etc. and use a diffuser at home. This was especially beneficial when builders were in my cottage for several weeks.
I have used this product on and off for many years for various situations. I have 4 cats and have had to move with them into a flat and I now use it permanently - it is well worth it as they are all very happy, relaxed and "laid back". I was worried about taking them into a confined space after having had more room to move about but I needn't have worried - with the help of Feliway!
Our neurotic indoor cat (one of two) immediately became relaxed after this was plugged in! We've been using it for 2 months now and the change in her is amazing! Highly recommended.
I must admit that I thought that this was another one of these supposed miracle products but it actually works! It noticeably calms my 2 indoor cats and I like to put it on before guests come over. I started using it in the hope that one of my cats would start using his litter tray instead of my bed and, fingers crossed, it seems to have worked in conjunction with changing the litter we use. Used in tandem with the Feliway spray, this is a must for cat owners. It is also odourless to humans. The only downside is that the diffuser is not very discreet.
We were at our wits end with our cat who would wee everywhere due to being in a multi cat household. "Our cat stressed?! Why he's got the best home ever!" we replied to our vet. Unbeknown to us if there are more than one or two cats stress will be evident even when they seem to get on. A-ma-zing!! the weeing stopped immediately and all the cats stopped their scratching of the furniture. We were going to have to rehome him but now thanks to this product all is well in purr and fur land.
After having tried many different ways of getting Millie the Cat to stop using the toilet near her food bowl; in the hallway; behind the laundry rack, etc, I bought one of the diffusers and overnight, she's started using the litterbox every single time! She's a rescue cat and has lived with me for about 3 months or so and she's wasn't completely settled in but her demeanour has become so much more relaxed after using this diffuser. It's like magic fairy dust. I highly recommend it to anyone who needs harmony with their furry friend.
We adopted a 'very shy' tabby this week. Before bringing her home I visited her at the adoption centre 3 times in total and each time she was incredibly timid a shy, usually hiding under a blanket and only tolerating a minimal amount of stroking. Under the impression that she would take quite awhile to adjust to her new home, we bought a Feliway diffuser and Spray and prepared for her arrival by spritzing her new room at cat-level, plugging in the diffuser, and spraying her carrier basket. Once in her basket she was very calm and seemed more bothered by the erratic taxi ride home than being confined to her basket itself. On the first evening in her new home she came out straightaway and let us stroke her and even sat on my lap! I don't know how much of this is down to the Feliway, but it certainly seems to have done the trick in this little cat's case and we're just delighted with the results.
I recently brought home my 5 year-old British Shorthair, a retired breeding queen, who had been fostered while waiting for me to collect her. While with the fosterer, she had nervously refused to leave her travel basket for the first 2 days! Fearing the worst, I purchased the Feliway diffuser and plugged it in one week before she arrived. I also sprayed the inside of her new travel basket with Feliway spray just before I picked her up. When I arrived at the fosterer's house, the cat calmly got into the basket and - give or take the odd meow - travelled happily in the car for the next two and a half hours. When we got home she stepped out of the basket immediately and proceeded to wander around the flat as if she had always been there. That first evening this "nervous" cat jumped onto my lap and has been affectionate and calm ever since. I can only put this down to the Feliway, although I couldn't (and still can't) detect any scent from it, apart from the initial smell of alcohol when it is first sprayed or plugged in (which cats hate). On the basis of this experience, I would recommend Feliway for nervous cats, for use in a pet carrier or to help cats that are about to be introduced to an unfamiliar environment.
I bought this 2 months back for my male tabby aged 3. He never got along with our female cat that we bought the same time as him and he would often beat her up. When we bought a King Charles Cav dog our male cat became depressed, he would hide under our bed, shy away from human touch and torment the life out of our female cat, it got to the point where I needed to rehome him and then I saw an advert for Feliway so I bought some and within 4 days my cat was even better than his old self. He now sits on our knees again, plays with the dog, gets along with our female cat...the results have been amazing and I advise you to buy this product if like me you were at your wits end and thinking of rehoming :)
The Feliway spray is a miracle worker! My kitten stopped scratching the moment I introduced this product in my home. Brilliant. Well worth the money. If you want to save your furniture this is the one to use!
