Gave in and bought a feliway diffuser
I hope 1 is enough.
We had another issue in the bathroom on a new rug. my mom was at her wits end so i made the decision to get one. Theyre worth $40 (luckily i can get 6 refills off of amazon for about $60, but i spent the money cuz i wanted it, like NOW.).
I put it near where i desperately do NOT want to have any issues. Which is the last remaining large rug.
This new little rug we tried i had treated with the no mark before. and every day. it took about a week and a half, but it still happened. so either he just really hates little mats, or his scent is in the wood floor under (however, with no mats, nothing happens at all).
I hope if we give this time to work.... i guess i just hope it will work.
i didnt put it in the bathroom (where it happened) since theres currently no mat in there. instead i thought putting it where the larger rug is as preventative made more sense.
will 1 diffuser cover a whole floor of a standard/average sized house? ( i think my mom said 1000 square feet). are walls an issue? I thought about somehow putting it in where the furnace fan blows somehow to circulate throught the whole house thru the vent system.... but thats not realistic. but is 1 per floor realistic?
if we try a new mat later, maybe ill grab some spray first, if it works that is.
how do you tell? just trial and error?
they were sniffing at it about 20 minutes after i plugged it in... they seemed to notice far befor the 90 days it says to give it....
i just hope it *works*
this is the last thing we can think of to try.
hopefully with using this even if other cats are outside, they wont give a hoot.
