Feliway® is a synthetic copy of the feline facial pheromone, used by cats to mark their territory as safe and secure. By mimicking the cat’s natural facial pheromones, Feliway® creates a state of familiarity and security in the cat's local environment. As a result, Feliway® can be used to help comfort and reassure cats while they cope with a challenging situation and help prevent or reduce the stress caused by a change in their environment. The development of Feliway®created a new field in veterinary medicine: Pheromonatherapy. Feliway is available in 2 convenient forms: an electric diffuser and a spray.
Signs your cat is under stress

Feline urine spraying is one of the primary methods used by cats to mark their territory. Whether male or female, neutered or not, it is exhibited in some way by almost every cat
In very stressful situations, some cats can react aggressively towards people, other cats or other household pets.
