Comfort Zone with Feliway

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Any info on your experiences with it. Does it work in transporting nervous cats. The info says to spray it directly in the crate 20 minutes before putting cats in. Thanks in advance.

I do use it, and like to think it helps... I also spray my car with it, and even my clothes...
A few drops of Rescue Remedy would help as well - good luck!

I've not used it during transport but I swear by the diffusers. They've solved a number of behavior problems around my house.

Do your difusiers get really hot in the outlet? Mine did and I did away with them.

I just literally plugged in my Feliway diffuser before I sat down and came online. I will be sure to watch whether is gets really hot or not.

I am so, so glad to hear that it does work though. Two of our bunch have decided that they don't like each other lately and are fighting and marking everywhere. I'm hoping this takes care of the situation.

The diffuser is my savior, been using it for a long time. It really does what it claims to do. Regarding the spray, however, I had to stop using it as Ku Ku gets very angry every time I use it. The problem was, I was always spraying it in her carrier before going to vet. I guess Ku Ku realized that the time I use the spray is the time she'll be taken to vet...

Start giving Rescue Remedy in drinking water approx 1 week prior to vet visit is "my trick" now

During the summer I took my cats to the cabin (about an hours drive from home). They go about once a year. I bought some feliway spray from the vets office and sprayed the inside of the carrier and also sprayed a bunch on the blanket I put into the carrier. I also gave them the Bach Pet Rescue Remedy about 1-2 days before The big drive. I have to say it went very well. Only 2 squeks out of Lexus and maybe one meow out of Bishop. It was really awesome. Same thing on the way home!!! I will definately be using it when I take them to the vet. And I might even bring the spray along to the vets office to spray on the examining table. I am one of the believers that feels unless you are keeping the cat in one room only then you need more then one feliway diffuser plugged in the home. And over a good 6-12 months (afer good results) you could go back to just one diffuser. Just from experience this has worked the best for me. One diffuser didn't do much for the situation but once we plugged in 2 diffusers in a 1 bedroom apartment we saw very good results

My diffusers did get warm but they were never very hot. They didn't worry me.

I swear by the diffusers now. I have one plugged in on each floor our house is probably 1700 sq ft. But the cats don't have access to the two extra bedrooms upstairs. It has made Jack a new cat and he even now grooms Harley, there is the occasional spiff still but way worth the money.

Lucy and Moose still have the occasional "spat", but the diffusers have really made a difference in my house. I have them on all the time.

I am so happy that you have found something to calm the kitties stress in the house

Yay - the diffusers are working! What a beautiful blessing! How big is your house and how many do you have plugged in and where?

I told my roommates that I was picking up this Awesome Contraption that would keep the kitties from litterboxing in the hallway. We were totally psyched! Ten minutes after I plugged in the shiny new diffuser, George took a poo directly underneath it.

Based on this experience, I would not recommend looking for results within ten minutes.

It only works if your problem is behavioral. Ten minutes may be quick but I swear mine worked that quickly. Inappropriate defecation is very rarely a behavior problem and is almost always a health problem. A trip to the vet might be the solution for your cat.

Spray the crate walls and also the blanket/towel inside the crate. This should help!

Oh no, this is definitely behavioral. He's been vetted. He's just really finicky about his litterboxing. We put a new litterbox in a completely ridiculous part of my bedroom, intending it to be for our new kitten who's spent much of her time sequestered in here.. And now George is using it. I don't know if that's Feliway, a shiny new box, or the power of This Is Not Meant For You, but there's no poo in my hall, and I'm happy.
