Combine cat calming solutions

We recommend using FELIWAY Spray to help your cat relax whilst travelling. Simply spray the inside of your cat carrier on the top, bottom and each corner at least 15 minutes before travelling and before introducing the cat, this will provide a calming, happier environment that will reassure your cat whilst travelling. Spray once in each corner and two sprays each on the top and bottom of the carrier.When you arrive, plug in a FELIWAY Help!  Diffuser. The pheromones will diffuse quickly (about 15mins) providing comforting messages of safety and security for 7 days while your furry friend settles back in and can start to leave their own messages of happiness!
