  • Preparing for a new baby in the home – use FELIWAY Optimum (or FELIWAY Classic) as you begin to prepare for your new arrival to the family. This will help your cat adjust to new objects, new scents/sounds, change of routine and when the baby arrives. 
  • Changes in routine – any change around the home, whether it be in routine, redecorating, or moving of furniture, can make your cat feel anxious. For long-term changes, use FELIWAY Optimum (or FELIWAY Classic). Each refill for FELIWAY Optimum provides 30 days of enhanced serenity.

When Should I Use FELIWAY Classic?

FELIWAY Classic is the original product innovation created for cat well-being over 25 years ago! Available as a diffuser or as a spray, it continues to be an excellent solution to help your cat feel comfortable at home and reduce signs of stress.

Problems FELIWAY Classic Supports:

Situations To Use FELIWAY Classic 

  • Visits to the vets. Using FELIWAY Classic Spray in the cat carrier, in the car and while at the vets will help your cat feel more comfortable during their visit.
  • Urinating outside the tray. It’s important to understand the reason why your cat has started to urinate outside their litter tray, and rectify the problem; it could be that you have changed the substrate, or you’ve moved the tray to a different location. To support your cat, make sure you clean the contaminated area thoroughly, plug in a FELIWAY Classic diffuser in the area, and consider additional support by using FELIWAY Classic Spray directly on the impacted area to help your cat feel more comfortable, and prevent them from repeating the behaviour.
  • Changes in the home. Remember that change can take time for your cat to adjust to! Using a FELIWAY Classic diffuser, plugged in where your cat spends the most time, can help them adjust to changes such as new furniture, a new home, new people, decorating or other big shifts!

If you have two or more cats in your home, and they are not getting along, FELIWAY Friends  can help them get along better. When used continuously, it will help to maintain harmony between them.

Problems FELIWAY Friends! Supports:

  • Helps build a bond between cats

Situations to use FELIWAY Friends!

  • Aggression between cats. It can take time for cats to learn to get along, and sharing a home with another cat can be stressful for them.
