Feliway

has anyone used this stuff? Does the spray and diffuser work equally well? I just bought the spray and waiting for it to arrive.

Re: Feliway

We've used it - both spray (for cat carrier and car before vet visits) and the diffuser in the house (while Gracie was brand-new, while we had construction at the house (deck outside, very noisy and disruptive) and while we had house guests (extremely rambunctious kids - they were the hardest! )). The Feliway helped in all cases, I would say. The spray doesn't linger the way a diffuser does, obviously, so I think it is good to have both if you think you will have situations that will warrant it...

Oh good!!!! I bought the darn spray and was hoping I didnt just blow $18 bucks. Thing is I dont want the cats to (2 of em) to get used to the stuff and then get hooked on it. Its to expensive for me to buy the refills every month. I rather spend the dough on good food for em.

Re: Feliway

I started using it to help calm my cat with the introduction of the other cat. Im not seeing any changes, they still fight. The only "diffuser" between those two is a spray of water! lol

Re: Feliway

I've used the diffusers and can definitely see a difference in behavior. I don't consider it a miracle cure, but it does help. I started using them when I introduced Holly into the house. When I didn't pay much attention to it, but would definitely notice a difference in behavior, then I'd look and see and sure enough it was empty. I stopped using it when it ran out and there was no change in behavior.

It was recommended to me by someone at the shelter where I volunteered. She said it made a big difference there, where they have many, many cats all loose in a room.

Re: Feliway

We had great result from both. But the "plug ins" definitely are more effective. They cant "get hooked" it just helps during stressful situation so they dont act out negatively and start a pattern. On the instructions I think it says use for 2 or 3 month and then you dont need it (depending on what issue your dealing with)
