I saw this product mentioned in a Best Friends magazine article. My older female cat was having difficulty adjusting to a new cat in the household, becoming the target of what I think was mostly "play agresion" by the new cat. She would get stressed out, hissing and running from one hiding place to another, which just made the new cat want to chase her all the more. I tried the plug-in diffusers but they were quite expensive and I would need more than one to cover the whole house. I put this pheromone collar on the cat who was getting picked on, and noticed significant improvement within a few days. It seemed to really decrease her stress level and give her more confidence, helping to break the cycle that was making her such a target for the other cat. She still hisses at him whenever they cross paths but I don't feel that I have to keep them separated while I'm at work anymore. If you have cats who aren't getting along this product may not solve the problem by itself but it can definitely help.
No more hair pulling - feline
My male cat started suffering from some separation anxiety after I had to return to work and he started pulling his hair out on his tail and hindquarters. He had begun licking one of the spots until it was raw. My vet started him on Prozac, but we had only been using it for 2 weeks. She also recommended a pheromone collar. I did some reviews and chose this one over the Sentry because I didn't like the idea of my cat smelling like lavender. I noticed a difference within 3 days. He seems calmer, more at ease, and even more playful. He's been wearing it a week and a half. There are some small cracks in the collar forming, but he's wearing it continuously. I would recommend trying it.
Product really worked well on my kitty
This collar was recommended to us by our vet. Our cat was constantly attacking his tail to the point that he would hurt himself and cause the tail to bleed. This was becoming a daily past time for him and the wounds on his tail would not heal. This behavior began shortly after we had to put one of our other cats to sleep. Within five minutes of putting the collar on him, his behavior changed. He stopped obsessing on his tail. After a few weeks, his tail healed. It's advertised that the collar lasts up to 30 days. This is true because right around that time, we notice that he begins to go after his tail again. Once we replace the collar, he immediately stops. We will continue to purchase this collar for our cat as long as it continues to work on him. The only other alternative would be to have his tail surgically removed and we do not want to put him through that trauma if it can be advoided.
WOW - this helps so much!
I did not believe it would work - but it helps my cat so much more than anything I have tried before. No more freaking out when people come over or scratching up my carpet when she gets upset.
