Cats and kittens can become stressed and anxious for many reasons! Feliway helps to reduce the signs of stress and anxiety in cats by mimicking the pheromones used to reassure cats in nature.
Car trips and trips to the vet, renovating or moving house, new arrivals and visitors to the household, and even rearranging furniture can be very stressful situations for cats and kittens.
This stress is often displayed through various signs or problem behaviours, such as:
- Urine marking or spraying
- House soiling
- Aggression towards other pets
Additionally, more discrete signs of stress and anxiety include:
- Reduced food intake
- Overgrooming or lack of grooming
- Hiding or appearing withdrawn
- Decreased levels of activity and play
What are pheromones?
Cats naturally rub their faces on familiar objects in their territory, leaving their pheromones. These pheromones are used to mark their territory as safe and secure.
What is Feliway?
Feliway is a synthetic copy of the feline facial pheromone. Working as a natural way to mimic feline pheromones, the use of Feliway creates a safe and familiar environment for cats or kittens. This works as a convenient and effective method to help reduce stress and anxiety levels in your cat or kitten. It can be used in many stressful situations, even for travelling, or at the vet clinic.
