How to travel with a cat in a cat carrier

traveling with your cat made easy cat TRAVEL

In general, cats are not good travelers.  But you can help make the occasional visit out of the house easier with Feliway® pheromones.  Feliway is clinically proven* to help reduce the stress of travel.  

Veterinarians use Feliway in their practices and recommend Feliway for travel.

Spray Feliway inside the cat carrier to help your cat feel more relaxed and help make your travels together a more pleasant experience.

MAKE TRAVELING WITH A CAT EASIER

1.

Help make the carrier a more positive experience by leaving the carrier open and accessible before traveling. Spray the carrier with Feliway daily.

2.

Put soft bedding in the carrier and give your cat treats in the carrier as well. You can also feed your cat in the carrier.

3.

Spray the carrier with 8-10 pumps of Feliway at least 15 minutes before putting the cat inside the cat carrier.

At home, using a Feliway Diffuser will also help the other cats in your household to adjust to the missing family member and welcome him home.

Feliway is clinically proven* to help reduce travel-related stress behaviors such as vomiting, urination, defecation, meowing, agitation and salivation.
