Feliway works better than advertised! Highly recommend
on March 11, 2016
This stuff is great! I tried for a month to introduce a new kitty into my home. My resident cat would have nothing to do with her. I did everything right. I kept the new kitty isolated for 2 weeks to allow her to become acclimated. I introduced her to my resident cat by putting her in her carrier and letting my resident cat meet her. He would just come up to the carrier and growl and hiss. This went on for a month. I was beginning to think that I would have to bring her back to the shelter.
As a last resort, I asked my vet what to do. He recommended Feliway cat pheromones. He said it would calm them both down. He told me to be an aerosol version and to put it in the room where my resident cat spent most of the time. He also recommended the spray version to spray around the new kitty's carrier so it would calm my resident cat down. I didn't expect much, but I was willing to try anything
I have to say that the results were amazing. My resident cat became much calmer within a couple of days. Also, he stopped growling and hissing when he "met" the new kitty in her carrier. After 3 days, I let them both out loose together. At first they ignored each other, but soon began to become friends. I kept aerosol versions for in each of their rooms for another couple of weeks just to help to keep them calm. After that, they weren't necessary.
Now my kitties are not only best friends...they're inseparable!
