Pet Pheromone Products for Behavior Problems: Do They Work?
You've seen your cat contently rub her face on the furniture, corners of the room, bottom of the curtains, and even you. She's marking her surroundings with special facial pheromones. These pheromones reassure her that all is well in her little world. However, if something stressful disturbs your cat's environment such as a new pet, visitors, moving to a new home, or even rearranging the furniture, she may begin urine marking, scratching, or even stop eating, or have a reduced desire to play and interact. COMFORT ZONE PLUG-INS to the rescue! CLICK ON LINKS DIRECTLY BELOW, ABOVE THE LARGER IMAGES.
The Comfort Zone Plug-In Diffuser with Feliway was designed to reduce or eliminate anti-social stress-related behavior in kittens & cats. If your cat is distressed or feels threatened, he'll mark his territory by scratching or spraying urine on walls, furniture and other vertical surfaces. This warns other cats to stay away. When your cat is calm and contented, you'll see him rub his face on objects to apply a facial pheromone that marks the area as safe and cat-friendly.
Comfort Zone For Cats with Feliway is available as a plug-in diffuser or spray bottle that releases a natural comforting facial pheromone produced by cats. For simple at-home use, simply plug in Comfort Zone for Cats into an electrical socket for around-the-clock control.

It can help reduce urine marking as cats do not urine mark where they facial mark. Because of this, be careful not to put it close to a litter box as you might discourage them from using the box.In the case of the calming product lines that Ceva offers, Adaptil for dogs and Feliway for cats, they are utilizing pheromones that have a calming effect on each species. Adaptil mimics a pheromone that the lactating canine female transmits that serves to calm and soothe her puppies.

After just a couple of days of the diffuser being plugged in their symptoms disappeared. Having a multi-cat household the cats would fight with each other on a daily basis, but since using Pet Remedy they hardly ever fight. Two of my cats like to sleep directly under the diffuser!! I have used other pheromone products but this is the only one that has worked for my cats. We also use the spray for when they travel to the vets, it keeps them very calm. We have also introduced a newborn baby into the house, and none of the cats were particularly bothered by her, I’m sure the Pet Remedy helped! I highly recommend all of the Pet Remedy products. The only downside it the slight smell of valarian, but after a few days you can’t smell it anymore. But it’s a small price to pay for blissfully happy cats!
