We have an older cat that has always been a bit nervous especially when it comes to new or different situations. Calming a stressed cat can be a bit of a challenge, unless you have the right products. Comfort Zone® with Feliway® products are a great remedy to help cats feel just a little more comfortable in unfamiliar situations. Our particular situation was that we had just introduced a new dog to our home.
Our cat responds to any changes in our environment by urinating on our bathroom carpeting. I am grateful she keeps it to the bathroom since they are just the bathroom rugs. I can put them in the washing machine or toss them out if it is really bad. However, it is a mess and smells. One thing that always triggers her to urinate on our bathroom carpeting is anytime we go on vacation. We normally have someone come over and take care of feeding her and cleaning her litter box since taking her to a kennel would be way too stressful on her. Although she is still in her home, she does get distressed from being in the home by herself for a majority of the time.
With the recent addition of the dog to our home, although she has adapted overall very well she was occasionally having an accident on the bathroom rugs. We started using the Comfort Zone® with Feliway® products to help reduce her stress-related behavior. We specifically used the Comfort Zone® with Feliway® Diffuser and the Comfort Zone® with Feliway® Spray to help her nice and calm.
The Comfort Zone® with Feliway® Diffuser continuously releases an odorless vapor that mimics the soothing feline facial pheromone. We leave it plugged-in near her litter box that is in the bathroom where she marks when she is stressed. This product is also great for use in multi-cat households to help keep them all relaxed around each other.
The Comfort Zone® with Feliway® Spray is easy and convenient to spray in an area where your cat has recently marked or scratched. I used this spray in the portion of the bathroom where she marks on the carpet. Also, it’s also good to spray in a crate to help cats remain calm during travel or on a trip to the vet.
They say Comfort Zone® with Feliway® products are 95% effective at reducing scratching and urine marking for cats, but they have been 100% effective with our cat!
The holidays are generally associated with a lot of hustle and bustle, visitors coming and going, and perhaps holiday travel plans. Using Comfort Zone® with Feliway® products can help reduce some of the stress your cat may feel associated with the holiday season.
