Last summer a cat showed up on my property. I figured he was a neighbor's cat. Then the neighbor moved but the cat stayed. He would wander through every few days till winter. I set up a small dog house with a extreme weather heating pad and had a heated water dish and food for him under cover. Then a bad cold snap hit and one morning I got up and he had moved into the house through the cat door. He isn't tame enough to pick up but will rub against my leg and then go hide. Unfortunately he and my cats started having major feuds. So I tried this and it helped. I did get another one along with the Multi-cat formula and that has now really helped. I am hoping to be able to get ahold of him long enough to get him in a carrier and down to be neutered. But until then this is working out.
My sweet girl who I adopted as a bonded pair (her partner unexpectedly passed) was struggling with a new move. She was refusing to eat-even when hand fed- and not leaving her bed. I gave her a week but no change. My vet recommended this product, and seriously within an hour of plugging it in, my little girl was up and exploring the house. Days later, she barely goes into her bed to hide, as the couch next to the window is much more interesting! I will be purchasing this product for any and all future moves
I just got a new cat and she has always had really bad anxiety. I got it to help her get used to the new environment and possibly help her anxiety and it worked amazing I mean now I cant walk two feet away from her because shes being so lovey and wanting attention but Im ok with that shes just going to have to get used to me not being home and being with the other people not just me. Because her anxiety isnt as bad shes eating and drinking more now thankfully.
My granddaughter recommended this to calm down my cat. I plugged it in and waited to see when it would start helping with my cats craziness. About 3 days after I plugged it in he was even crazier biting me and scratching me. I unplugged it and he seems quieter.
THIS is the most awesome thing I've ever used! Recently, we introduce TWO new kittens into the house with an older (and testy) 13 yr old Tortie cat. This has helped so much - that the tortie (Josie) can NOW be in the same room with the 2 other cats without hissing and growling. ALSO helped with the little kitten (7 months old now) with her 1st heat - keeping her 'calm' until her little girl surgery. IF you haven't tried this for stressed/anxious cats - do it!!
After two weeks the device began leaking and a smell of burning plastic was emanating from the device. I followed all instructions, there are no electrical issues in my wall socket. Don’t know if I got a faulty one, but I’m real glad I was home and recognized the smell.
I could tell a difference in my 3 year old cat's behavior within the first few hours of using this product. He has become a more social and calm kitty.
I bought this product at the recommendation of the vet to soothe my kitten who got into the habit of attacking/biting. He was also having some issues using the litter box. Honestly we have not really noticed any difference. He still has some behavioral issues and his use of the litter box is hit or miss. We keep the diffuser in his bedroom (near his litter box) where he spends the most time. I wish the product was more effective given the cost, but I guess my kitten is just a little different.
I can't comment on how well this works for cats (seems fine, though I didn't notice a big difference in behavior after unplugging it), but it did cause irritation in my nose and throat while it was turned on. Probably to be expected when vaporizing oil in a small apartment, but still - if you're sensitive to cigarette smoke etc., maybe give this a pass.
I had hoped this would quell my cat's antics during the night and it seemed to work for one or two nights but she was right back to scratching wicker furniture after that in addition to tearing through the house.
