Comfort Zone® with Feliway® review

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Comfort Zone® products for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Our sweet Josie kitty adopted us three years ago. She had kittens in our shed. When the kids left the back door open, she brought her kittens inside and refused to leave. We couldn't have asked for a better cat.

She's very easy going to the point of allowing the kids to dress her up in clothes. No scratching. No hissing. Just a look of mild contempt.

Josie is almost perfect.

Except

She likes to use my couch as a scratching post and she considers any clothes or towels left on the bathroom floor, part of her litter box.

Needless to say, I'm very anxious to see those behaviors disappear!

I was very excited to receive a sample of   Comfort Zone® with Feliway® . This product releases pheremones that mimick those a cat normally releases. It is 95 percent effective in reducing scratching and urine marking, things cats do when they are stressed.

I've used Comfort Zone® with Feliway® for a full month now, but you really need to give it 90 days to see if it works for you and your cat.

While Josie hasn't completely stopped scratching the couch, she's doing it less. And less is a good thing. We are also seeing a more playful side of Josie. She's chasing things (including her tail) and will use other items to scratch. Heck, she's even climbing ladders to bat at the danglies in my holiday garland!


We plugged our diffuser in to the outlet closest to the couch. I was very happy to find it was odorless. That's a huge plus.

The other big plus? The kids are now free to leave their clothes and towels on the bathroom floor. But I'm certainly not telling THEM that!  After about the second week of using Comfort Zone® with Feliway®, Josie stopped urinating outside her litter box.

Comfort Zone® with Feliway® is available as a diffuser or in a spray at your local pet stores, Petco or PetSmart or online. I'm definitely interested in trying the spray on my couch to see if a more direct approach might work.

  1. We got the spray for the 4th of July 'cause our kitty was freakin' out! You'd think livin' next to Ft Lewis/McCord (JBLM, I think they call it now.) she'd be used to the bombin' but, OH NO!
    We would spray it where she likes to hideout and it seemed to lessen her stress.

  2. I used Feliway for 2 years when we adopted Suki. It truly works quite well. We stopped using it a couple years ago.
    As for the scratching. Cats either scratch vertically or horizontally. It is HARD to stop horizontal scratchers. Stores carry scratches on rope though...try those. Suki LOVES the cardboard ones (they have some that hang) and has never touched our couches. Good luck.
