Feliway is a product that comes in a wall plug-in (like an air freshener) or as a spray.

It gives off "happy kitty" pheremones that can help soothe and calm cats. It doesn't have any detectable smell to people.

I swear by the stuff, but some others have said it doesn't really affect their cat; it probably depends on the cat. I use a plug-in at my house, and it makes a big difference with one of my cats. The other is pretty even-keel no matter what, but I can always tell when it's time to replace the plug-in (once a month) by the way Leo is acting. It takes a little for it to start working, and I think the product says to let it go for a month to get the full effect.

The downside to some people is that it's kind of expensive - I believe the refills for the plug-in are about $20-$25. I don't remember how much the original was.

You can buy it at most pet supply chains (i.e., Petsmart, PetCo, etc.).

Thank you for the good info

It has worked like a charm for me (for the most part). The very first time I used it, I put it in Isadora's cat carrier before I took her to the vet (she makes vet visits rather embarassing). I was astonished when I got there that she turned from psycho kitty to a perfect angel. She didn't even bat an eye when the vet stuck the thermometer you-know-where. Since then, I've had mixed reactions with it. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

It also appeared to fix her little problem of peeing on our bed.

I used the plug ins for a little while, now I use the spray.

I've used the spray in my kitten's carrier and she doesn't seem to be effected by the spray. However, my boyfriends kitten climbs into the carrier and falls asleep in there a few minutes after I've sprayed it! The vet told me that it works on some kittens/cats and won't work on others. I guess it's "hit or miss" which could be a bad thing if you're not willing to spend about $40.00 on something that could be a "miss". Although it doesn't seem to work on my cat, I'd still recommend trying it because it certainly works for others.

Definately order refills before you run out. I really see a difference since the diffusers are empty. The cats are all fighting now. I just moved 3 cats into a 4cat household. Two of my cats used to live with the other 4.
