What is Feliway?

Feliway is a synthetic copy of the feline facial pheromone, used by cats to mark their territory as safe and secure.

What does that mean exactly?

By mimicking the cat’s natural facial pheromones, Feliway creates a state of familiarity and security in the cat’s local environment.

Why should I use Feliway?

Feliway can be used to help comfort and reassure cats while they cope with a challenging situation and help prevent or reduce the stress caused by a change in their environment.

What does my cat have to be stressed about?

Cats like to be in control of their environment and they mark their home environment using facial pheromones. Therefore, if we remove or disrupt these marks by moving furniture, bringing in a new item or new pet or new baby, excessive cleaning, construction, etc we can disorient our cats and in some cases bring on stress.

How do I know if my cat is stressed?

Common signs of stress would be urinating outside the litter box (though it is important to rule out a medical cause), vertical scratch marking, hiding or refusing to interact, over grooming and multi-cat conflict.

When do I use Feliway?

Feliway is available in multiple forms: a plug-in diffuser, a spray bottle and disposable wipes. Times to use Feliway would be any stressful situation: Moving, Visiting the Vet, Multi-cat households, New furniture/Redecorating/Construction, Boarding and Travel/Cat Carrier.
