Extra Top Tips:
Any changes to a cat’s environment can be stressful for your cat, particularly new visitors or family and friends gathering for a party. When visitors arrive in your home, your cat’s normally quiet and peaceful home is crowded with lots of new visitors, different smells, noise and movement.
How can you help your cat cope ?
Provide your cat with a hiding place - cats like to be up high and out of the way, this is usually their best coping mechanism when they get stressed.
Give them privacy - if they decide to hide in the spare bedroom, leave them there and do not try and coax them out into an environment they are not comfortable in. While they have chosen their new safe spot make life easier for them by providing all their main resources to use in their safe room (litter, food and water).
Use a FELIWAY Diffuser which releases ‘happy messages’ to help provide a reassuring environment and calm your cat when they are in a stressful situation like having visitors over.
