Feliway Diffuser Kit for Cats
I bought the Feliway diffuser as my 6 month old kitten was spraying near the litter trays. It's only been two weeks, but so far NO MORE SPRAYING! I plugged the diffuser in in the hall near the litter trays and both of my cats are using the toilet properly.
I was skeptical at first, our two cats had been fighting a lot (one starting on the other one) and they have been together for 6 years so it didn't seem right. I'd read the reviews and thought why not give it a go. They seem to be fine, they still have the odd scrap but I think that is normal, not as bad as they were, I am going to order a refill today :-)
Have an older cat and was moving house, so bought this product on the recommendation of the vet. I didn't notice any change in the cats mood so I can only base this review on my personal experience and conclude that this product didn't work. What also annoyed me was that the product didn't last as long as claimed.
Adopted a 2-year old boy from a vet a couple months ago. He's very timid and I didn't see him at all for almost two weeks, other than hearing him rustle around at night a bit. My mother's friend (who has difficult cats) recommended that I try this, and I took the plunge. Only a few hours after I plugged this in, my cat came out to explore during the day for the very first time. In the three weeks since I first used it, he has become more and more comfortable in my room, and the adjoining rooms, and is even more friendly with my roommate (even if he still is a bit timid of strangers). 10/10, will continue to use until he is completely settled, even if it takes a few more months. I will also be using this if I ever have to leave for extended periods of time and he is being looked after by strangers (i.e. not myself or my roommate) as it helps him stay calm.
I first started using this product over 5 years ago, when my elderly male cat developed feline dementia, which resutled in night disturbances ++ and unsettled my younger female. The effects were dramatic; his behaviour calmed in the first 24 houurs - and deteriorated when a new refill was due. He's since passed away and I recently have acquired a new kitten, which has upset the now-senior female. So naturally the Feliway has come back into use and they're adjusting to each other. I can't recommend this product highly enough.
