Beaphar take a look at how pheromone technology can help our cats feel comfortable and relaxed, especially during fireworks season.

We love our feline friends. The way they snuggle with us on the sofa, the way they trot over to greet you when you come home, the way they push things off the side onto the floor… Okay, maybe we’re not too fond of that one! But that cheeky personality is part of what makes a cat ‘a cat’ and what makes them who they are.

Occasionally, something may happen that causes your cat to feel uncomfortable or anxious. It may something obvious, like fireworks at bonfire night or a thunderstorm. Other times, it could be something we find mundane, like vacuuming the living room or introducing a new pet to the family. At times like these, we want to help our cats feel reassured and comfortable.

Pheromone technology is just one way you can do this. Pheromones are naturally produced by cats, and instantly recognisable to felines of all ages and breeds. Certain cat pheromones trigger an instinctive calming response, helping them feel safe and reassured. Whether you’ve got a mischievous kitten or a more senior cat, a pheromone calming product can help your feline friend feel calmer during stressful situations.

The Beaphar CatComfort® Calming Range includes this pheromone technology and can easily be found at your nearest pet shop or online retailer.

Cats will be cats. They may insist on sitting on your keyboard or drinking out of the kitchen tap, but these are things we love about them. With Beaphar CatComfort®, you can make sure you cat feels reassured during stressful situations and comfortable to carry on being themselves.

The Beaphar CatComfort® Calming Range includes:

  • Beaphar CatComfort® Calming Diffuser – ideal for stressful situations your cat may experience while at home, such as fireworks, thunderstorms and changes in the home. Each diffuser refill lasts up to 30 days, and Beaphar CatComfort® 30 Day Refills are also available.
     
  • Beaphar CatComfort® Calming Spot-On – creates a calming effect that travels with your cat for up to 1 week, so is perfect for providing reassurance whether at home or spending time in catteries. This calming spot-on contains the Cat Appeasing Pheromone, which is a key part of bonding between the mother and her kittens, making it particularly ideal for promoting harmony and reducing conflict in multi-pet households.
     
  • Beaphar CatComfort® Calming Spray – effective for up to 5 hours, this calming spray can be used at home and on-the-go. Spray inside cat carriers 15 minutes before placing your cat inside for stress-free travel to vets and catteries. Or, use in combination with the calming diffuser to reduce problem behaviour, such as furniture scratching and urine spraying, in the home. Spray on areas where the behaviour is occurring, and plug the diffuser in nearby.
