Urinating outside the litter box, scratching up the furniture and other undesirable feline behaviours are common signs of stress in cats. Feliway helps comfort and reassure cats. It builds confidence and sends a message that there is no need to hide or leave unwanted marks.
When a cat feels comfortable in its environment, it rubs its cheeks against walls and furniture leaving behind a message, undetectable to humans, known as a feline facial pheromone.
Feliway helps comfort and reassure cats by mimicking the natural facial pheromone that happy cats use to mark their territory as safe and familiar. It is clinically proven to help reduce stress that leads to unwanted behaviours.
Pheromones are signals that animals of the same species use to communicate messages—such as the comforting and reassuring message in Feliway.
