Cat comfort Diffuser from Beaphar, RRP £18.00:
Following on from my review of the Beaphar dog calming collar, I am now trying out several other calming aids, as part of an on-going series of reviews and updates. This time I’m trying out the Cat Comfort diffuser by Beaphar, as the perfect opportunity presented itself.
So, on Christmas eve I moved house, I know, I’m a sucker for punishment! Thankfully my cat FoxFairy was able to stay behind with my dad who she likes, so we could get everything sorted; without having the extra worry of whether she was climbing up the walls or escaping out the front door as we brought in the furniture.
She has also never lived with my dogs, although she has met one of them before. FoxFairy is generally hostile towards new and unknown things, She usually hides when she hears someone new in the house and growls when someone knocks at the front door.
So as per the instructions, I’ve set up the plug in an un obstructed area. Of course, it needs to be in the area that your cat spends most of their time. Like the branded leader, CatComfort uses a synthetic pheromone. This is a marker that cats leave on things when rub their faces on it. It tells them that this thing is familiar and safe, which promotes a feeling of reassurance, reducing anxiety and therefore associated behaviours.
The kit comes with the plugin and a bottle which should last around 30 days and is effective in an area of up to 70m2. I’ve plugged in the diffuser about 2 days before we will be moving FoxFairy, this should give it time to fill the room. You won’t be able to smell or taste the diffuser, so do don’t worry about that and as I said when I tried out the Feliway Friends plug in, you must leave the plug switched on.
I’ll do 3 more updates to let you know how well (or not) this works.
So come back to find out how it has gone! You can also watch my short video updates on my YouTube channel.
And of course, I wish you a very happy New year!
