How to travel with a cat in a cat carrier

traveling with your cat made easy cat TRAVEL

Taking your cat out of the house, whether on a fun vacation or perhaps for a visit to the vet can be made much easier with the use of clinically proven FELIWAY.

Vets use FELIWAY in their practices and recommend FELIWAY for travel.

Just a few sprays of FELIWAY inside the cat carrier and your cat will feel more relaxed and make your travels together a more pleasant experience.

The above video advice from our veterinary advisor on travelling with your cat.



Make your cat familiar with his/her carrier by leaving it open and accessible some time before traveling.


Ideally do not feed your cat for at least 6 hours before leaving, to avoid nausea that can cause vomiting


Use FELIWAY at least 15 minutes before putting the cat inside the cat carrier.


Spray inside the cat carrier. One spray in each corner and two sprays on the floor and ceiling.


For extended trips remember to plug in a FELIWAY Diffuser in your destination or home to help your cat cope with the new home, and then again when back at home to ease your cat’s return.

Using a FELIWAY Diffuser will also help the other cats in your household to re-adjust to the change, as a trip outside the home will have reduced the competition for resources for other cats and increase it with the re-introduction.

FELIWAY keeps your household calm and happy.
