Comfort Zone

Calm Your Pets with Comfort Zone!

I have always grown up with cats. My parents had barn cats and we as children always loved to see the new babies that would be born each spring. Now that I am married, my husband is deathly allergic to cats so we don't have any. My sister on the other hand, has always loved cats and has had two since she has been a homeowner. Her cats are very cute and cuddly...at least one of them is. Milo and Midas are her two cats and she has had them since kittens. She adopted them from our local SPCA and has raised them and loves them to pieces. Recently, her one cat has been very jittery. She always has construction going on at her house and is renovating. The construction workers scared Milo once and that poor cat has not been the same since. Whenever I go over to her house to visit, Milo is no where to be found. He runs and hides and does not come out at all. He is probably smart to hide as my two toddlers love to chase them around. :) Poor Milo has been a nervous wreck for quite a while now and I feel badly for my sister.
Well, recently I was made aware of a product that is designed to help your cats feel more at home and because I don't have cats, I didn't think much of it. But then I thought of my sister and knew this might be a good product for her to try! Comfort Zone is a company that makes a product that is designed to reduce stress in your cats (and dogs!). Here is a bit more about Comfort Zone...

Comfort Zone® with Feliway® products mimic the feline facial pheromone that helps a cat feel at home in his environment. When your cat rubs his face on an object, or even you, he is releasing the feline facial pheromone that marks the area as familiar and safe.

When he senses this facial pheromone through the nasal passage, he recognizes it as familiar and does not feel the urge to urine mark or scratch.

The diffusers work by using a heating element to disperse the pheromone into the air. Once the pheromone is present, the pet breathes it in, and the pheromone attaches to a receptive organ called the vomeronasal organ located in the nasal cavity. The vomeronasal organ then signals the brain, via nerves, and a sense of well-being is established.

Comfort Zone is also available for dogs and puppies. So, I was excited to have my sister try Comfort Zone.
For this review I was sent a Comfort Zone with Feliway Diffuser, some refills and also a Comfort Zone with Feliway Spray. Because I don't have a cat, I headed right over to my sister's house so she could check out these products.
Everyone, meet Midas. He is spunky, full of energy and just loves my children. I was unable to get a picture of Milo as he was hiding at the time. My sister takes very good care of her cats and you can tell that they love her!
First, we plugged in the Diffuser. All you need to do is to screw the diffuser into a bottle and then plug into an outlet. You want to make sure you place the diffuser into a room in which your cat is alot. What this product does is helps cats and kittens to not be stressed out when you change their environment or the layout of their space (moving, furniture rearrangement, etc.). This Comfort Zone product also helps to eliminate nasty urine marking and scratching that comes as a result of stress.
The Comfort Zone with Feliway Spray is made to directly apply onto furniture or any surface that you don't want scratched or peed on. My sister tried this spray on a piece of lawn furniture that her cats had been scratching and she noticed that they stayed away from it completely. She LOVED this!
Scratching
I will also note that my sister fosters kittens for the SPCA and that kittens are typically really scared and hyper-active when she first brings them home. On one occasion, two kittens that she had totally ransacked a room that she had them in...peeing and pooing all over the floor. She tried the Comfort Zone with Feliway Diffuser in that room with the next two kittens that she got and they were fantastic! No stress and no messes. 

If you are looking to purchase Comfort Zone products you can visit their store locator on their website to find a location near you. Comfort Zone products can be found at major pet stores like Petco and Petsmart. Prices are as follows: Comfort Zone with Feliway Plug-In and Refills ~ $23.99 - $39.99. Comfort Zone with Feliway Spray ~ $26.00.
So, in my (and my sister's) opinion...Comfort Zone products for cats are wonderful! My sister was impressed with how her cats seemed calmer and stopped scratching her furniture. It was also nice to have on hand for her foster kittens. She will keep using the Comfort Zone products as she really thought that they worked well for her cats.
