A cure for your cats anxiety and unwanted behaviors
Does your cat need to chill?
Anxiety can lead to unwanted behaviors in cats such as hiding, marking, meowing, and more. Most mark it off as a personality trait but what if you could actually help your cat?
Is there a magic potion that could cure your cat and quell the anxiety? There actually is. There are products that emit a scent that only a cat can smell. They are pheromones that will put your cat at ease.
Stress can occur because you leave on a vacation, they sense change, there is a new pet introduced, and more. Stressful things happen. You aren't going to forget about that vacation and never leave home. There is a way that you can help your kitty through those times.
Reduce feelings of anxiety with Pheromones
-Things that could add stress to your cat's life-
Cats can become stressed when new pets are introduced or when company comes to your home. Vet trips are infrequent but your cat may be slow to relax after the trip. A cat may not enjoy it when you travel or when you leave for work. Other pets may add stress to your cats world as well.
What are the signs your cat is experiencing stress?
Cats that are experiencing stress or anxiety will often go to the bathroom in places they shouldn't.
They may chew their fur off.
A cat may groom too frequently when they are anxious
They may hide and appear aloof.
Stress can affect a cat on a physical level as well. They may vomit or groom too frequently.
Is it an easy fix?
Yes! Pheromones can make a cat feel at home and safe.
Feliway is a synthetic copy of the feline facial pheromone. This is used by cats to mark their territory and reminds them that they are safe and secure. This scent mimics natural facial pheromones.
Feliway creates a state of familiarity and helps a cat adjust. They can begin to cope with and manage the stress that they feel. It isn't pulling wool over their eyes. It just allows them to control their emotions.
Comfortable and happy cat
How quickly does the change occur?
This depends on how localized the product is. For example, placing a calm collar on while you also put a diffuser in where they stay will make this change occur quickly. It will appear immediately.
A pheromone spray is very helpful because it allows to correct behavior on the go or in the area they are in as well. If your can needs to go in a carrier, you spray the carrier. If your cat needs a little extra comfort when on the couch, spray the cushion, etc.
