FELIWAY Classic or FELIWAY Friends? What's the difference?


Can you tell the difference between your furry friend's happy behaviours, and what might be stress responses?Our cats and kittens get up to all sorts of antics! And if a cat is relaxed and happy, you'll see they are quite happy to curl up in a corner or sleep on their favourite perch. They'll also mark their territory by rubbing their face on furniture, or corners, or even against your leg if you are closeby - leaving happy messages of reassurance as they go!

But if you notice that your cat is not settling; is scratching furniture (rather than a scratching post), spraying in the home, or fighting with other cats in your house, you may need to take action to help your pussycat become less stressed.

There are many causes for kitty stress that can lead to changes in behaviour. It may be as simple as a change in furniture, or a new routine! Luckily there are lots of ways to keep a cat calm if they seem stressed - and FELIWAY can also help!

Below are two products that can help your kitty to cope with stressful situations - and tips on how to use them to best effect!

Feliway Difuser plugged on a wall


FELIWAY Classic Diffuser - When should I use it?

Is your kitty showing stress behaviour's such as spraying, scratching or hiding? Then a FELIWAY Classic Diffuser may be a good fit for you!

How does it work?

FELIWAY Classic Diffuser is an excellent solution to comfort cats at home. Plugged into your kitty's favourite area, the Diffuser offers everyday support by releasing reassuring messages, and so reduces behaviours such as spraying, scratching or hiding. The Diffuser can also help support your kitty through any expected changes in routine that might unsettle them!

A FELIWAY Classic Diffuser can also help to nurture your relationship with your cat, as it creates a loving environment at home and its continuous effect provides constant comfort for your cat. It is clinically proven, and veterinary recommended.

FELIWAY Friends - When should I use it?

Are your cats not bonding? Are they hissing at each other? Perhaps you need to become the mediator and could use a little help from FELIWAY Friends!

How does it work?

Plugging in a FELIWAY Friends Diffuser in the room where your cats spend most of their time, sends natural messages to cats to enable them to live together in harmony - even if they have not been the best of friends for a while.

When a mother cat gives birth she sends harmony messages to her kittens from her mammary zone which helps kittens live together peacefully, and to feel safe and secure. FELIWAY Friends mimics these harmony messages and can help restore a peace and tranquility in your home.


Are you seeing spraying, scratching or hiding behaviours - and you have multiple kitties in conflict? Don't worry! It is possible to use both FELIWAY Classic and FELIWAY Friends at the same time!

It's not uncommon to see kitty conflict cause other stress behaviours, such as urine spraying or scratching, so supporting your kitty family with FELIWAY and helping to reduce stress can lead to a much calmer household all around!
