Use A Feliway Diffuser, An Effective Way To Stop Your Cat Urinating In The House

A Feliway diffuser for cats is a natural way to create a calming influence over cats and reduces stress without using tranquilizers of drugs. This results in the lessening or complete elimination of unwanted behaviours from your cat such as urinating in the house to mark territory or scratching on furniture and woodwork. Feliway products are widely available online and I have managed to find them at brilliant prices so they are even more economical to use.

A Feliway diffuser works by producing a vapour that contains a copy of the natural pheromone made in the face glands of your cat and which he uses to mark his territory. This is completely odourless and harmless to humans. When plugged into a wall socket, the diffuser creates a column of warm air that circulates the pheromone round the room. Each diffuser cartridge can last up to four weeks before it needs to be replaced.

If a cat is feeling safe in its environment, it will rub its head against objects such as furniture, wall corners, and tables. What cats are actually doing when you see them rubbing their faces is scent-marking with their pheromones. To cats, this sends out the message ‘I am well and happy here’. Cats are very sensitive to change and things can happen that cause stress and upset. The could perhaps cause the problem behaviours of urination in the home, scratching your furniture or, your cat may become listless and lose his appetite.

These types of behaviour may be considered normal, but they are more usual when the animal is under stress. A Feliway spray can be used to reinforce the effects of the Feliway diffuser especially if the cat needs to be transported in a carrying box as this can be sprayed about fifteen minutes before the cat needs to be placed inside. This will have a great calming effect on your cat, and soothe him for the journey.

If you wish, you may like to get your vet to check your cat over before you start using a Feliway diffuser. Provided your vet confirms no other reason for the behavioural problems, go ahead and use the Feliway diffuser and the spray too. It is reassuring to know from the point of view of the humans that live in your home that the Feliway diffuser will calm your cat whilst being undetectable by people!
