New Year’s Eve is just around the corner, and as families with felines get ready to ring in 2013 they can make a resolution to help their four-pawed pals cope with holiday stress.
Travelers who are packing for a holiday getaway may find that their furry friends are dealing with emotional baggage. Coaxing cats to leave their comfortable environment for the confines of a carrier is never easy, but a few pumps of Comfort Zone® with Feliway® spray 20 minutes prior to placing a cat inside will have felines checking their ‘cat’itude at the carrier door.
The holidays can put those who purr under pressure even if they stay in familiar surroundings. Realizing that they have been left home alone can cause the claws to come out with displays of their displeasure on the furniture, while welcoming the new year complete with cascading confetti and a loud chorus of “Auld Lang Syne” may provoke a cat to show distress by spraying.
To dissuade misbehavior, pet parents can plug in a Comfort Zone® with Feliway® diffuser, an odorless vapor which– like Comfort Zone® with Feliway® spray– puts cats in a mellow mood by mimicking a feline’s facial pheromones. (It is recommended to allow 90 days to see the full effect of Comfort Zone® with Feliway® products. Follow the instructions in the product insert for detailed usage.)
Comfort Zone® products, which are 95% effective in reducing scratching and urine marking for cats, are available at specialty pet stores including PetSmart and Petco, independent pet stores and online. A $10 off coupon is available.
