I am a HUGE animal lover and have been fortunate enough to have had all sorts of pets all my life. I had every kind of pet from snakes to parakeets but it wasn’t until I got married that I owned a cat. My family did not like cats for some reason so it was the one animal I could not have. When my husband and I bought our first house, the first thing I wanted to do was adopt a cat and as it turned out, a cat adopted us one day by showing up on our door step!! It has opened a whole new world to me and now I cannot even imagine my life without my little fur balls.
Over the years my two cats have had to adjust from our quiet home of two to our loud, crazy home of four. It hasn’t been easy for them and now that the holidays are here it makes life for them a bit harder. Pets can get stressed during the holiday season (especially cats) when you have lots of family gatherings or unfamiliar guests in and out of your home. Even something as small as a change in their meal times or general schedule can bring on stress induced destructive behaviors like scratching and urine marking. Holiday travel and long stretches of time away from home can be a major stress factor as well. Sometimes you need to give you pet a little help with these transitions and Comfort Zone® products are here to help!
Comfort Zone® products help reduce stress-related behavior in cats by mimicking their natural pheromones, helping them feel calm and comfortable in their environment. Comfort Zone® with Feliway® products for cats are 95% effective at reducing destructive urine marking and scratching associated with fear or any stressful situations that can typically arise in a home, such as the birth of a baby, an unfamiliar house guest or moving.
My older cat was starting to scratch at my microfiber couch for some reason so I was very happy to try this out. We had a major change in our household schedule so I thinking that could be the reason. I was ready to give this a try to help my couch survive!
Using this product in the home cannot be easier. The Comfort Zone® with Feliway® Diffuser continuously releases an odorless vapor that mimics the soothing feline facial pheromone. All you need to do is plug it in where your cat spends most of its time to keep it calm. If you have a multi-cat household like I do or if you are thinking of adding a new pet to the family the Comfort Zone® with Feliway® Diffuser would be a great product to have on hand to help keep all your pets relaxed around each other as they get to know their new family members. This would have come in really handy when we went from a one cat household to two. Maybe it would have prevented my first cat from hiding under the bed for a month!
Traveling? Use the easy and convenient Comfort Zone® with Feliway® Spray on areas where a cat has recently marked or scratched or spray in your cat’s crate to help them remain calm during travel.
When using Comfort Zone® products, it is important to follow the instructions in the product insert for detailed usage and to allow 90 days to see the full effect in your cat or dog. I have been using this product for a little over a month and am starting to see less scratching and less hiding/running away. I am excited to see what a full 90 days will look like. Hopefully the scratching will cease completely and I can remove the pet covers currently protecting my sofa. I want my sofa back!!
