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.
I bought Feliway to try to calm down one of my cats as he is very possessive over me, especially when my other cat is around, and it seems to be working.
My problem is that I constantly now have a metallic taste in my mouth which isn’t great. The cat problem seems to be getting better, so I might just have to live with the taste problem.
Our cats are quite laid back but taking them on long car journeys is definitely pushing it a bit. Sprayed this in carriers before setting off, and during the journey - cats were blissed out all the way from England to France. Excellent product.
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
Not undetectable by some humans but GREAT for elderly cats
Previously left a review as the product caused me problems with my throat when I first used it. That did pass after a week so I guess I got used to it in the air. However, my 16 year old cat had recently been having multiple fits every day and waking up out of it and biting his leg repeatedly. I am delighted to say that within 48 hours the fits stopped completely and he sleeps in a new bed on the landing beside the plug in now. He is his old laid back self, hopefully for a year or two more.
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.
I have had a cat for 6 years and hasn't caused me any trouble with breathing. We got a kitten who didn't bother me the first couple of weeks. Then I plugged in the Feliway and I've had a terrible few weeks of wheezing really badly. I assumed it was the kitten and spoke to the GP - he told me to give the kitten away :( Now I wonder if it is the diffuser, and have switched it off for the last week. I do feel a bit better and am wheezing less.
Product may help my cat - jury is out but this is a warning to humans. I plugged mine in this afternoon. It is in the hallway and my office is a few feet away. After 20 minutes I suddenly tasted a really metallic horrible flavour in my mouth and it really affected my throat. I have left it plugged in but can't get rid of the taste, even though I have been drinking gallons of water. It is not nice.
My cat Bartholomew is very highly strung. Whenever he gets stressed he develops a UTI and if we're really lucky, starts pooing on the floor! Five months ago I committed the cardinal pussy cat sin of having a baby. Barty was not happy. Vets visits, antibiotics and poo in my shoe, among other places, ensued. Feliway diffusers are the only things to help. We put one by his food bowl and another by his favourite sleeping spot, within a week the problems stopped.
It seems to work, I would have been sceptical about it before, but we were desperate and prepared to try anything! We have an adult cat who is not keen on the new kitten, to put it mildly, her reaction is very odd, and this definitely seems to calm her. We got the spray too, though it's not stocked anymore. I would say give this a go, it does seem to help, and it's better value here than in our local vets.
These are really good to calm your pet if they're feeling a little bit stressed...I've purchased these a few times for previous cats I had & so ordered another, as we've just got a new younger cat & she was a little scared, coming into a new home, so bought a feliway, so she could calm down a bit & feel a little more secure & safe...& it's worked. I would definitely recommend feliway plug ins.
I purchased these feliways before, as we had great results with our previous cats. So now we have a younger cat & wanted her to feel safe & secure, as with her being young & flighty, we thought this would calm her down a bit & we think it has, as we've seen a more contented little cat & she seems much more relaxed. I would definitely recommend you try them...& I know that they are a little bit expensive, but once you have a plug-in, the refills are ok.
I would recommend using them for either month on/month off, or 2 months on/1 month off, as the pets get used to them, so having the break will help.
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.
having been in a cat hotel for 9 days confined together one of my cats started fighting with the other. They could not be in the same room together so the fighting agitated cat decided she would mainly stay outside. It was heart breaking for us as we loved her and wanted to hold and pet her like we used to. Within 4/5 days of using the diffuser in the two of the main rooms she came back inside and is happy to stay. She still swipes every now and then at our other cat but there is no fighting - love this product
