So we've been using the feliway friends plug in for nearly a month now and I wish I could say that a peaceful calm has befallen the house, but to be honest, I've not seen any noticeable changes in the two cats behavior.
It is important to point out that this newer product is different from the original feliway plug in as it uses a different pheromone in order to help make your cat feel more secure and therefore more relaxed.
The only noticeable change that any of us have noticed is that the day after we started using it, Iggle, the black fluffy madam decided to punch my step mum in the face so hard, that for moment she thought she may have a broken nose!
The only room where the two cats really interact is in the living room so that's where I put the diffuser. The instructions do say to leave it switched on, but my dad was sure it was making him sneeze! whether or not that's true, the plug in has been turned off several times which may account for why it has been as successful as I had hoped.
Now whilst it may be a coincidence, Iggle is not always the most friendly, she has certainly bitten and swipped at them before, this was the first that, with out warning she attacked anyone.
As for Fairy, I can't say that she has been any different then normal, she still hisses at Iggle if she looks at her or walks past her. I have found that they seem to be able to come to some sort of mutual agreement to ignore each other, particularly if there are no people around in the living room.
I wouldn't discourage anyone from trying Feliway, it may be that we need to give the original a go, the instructions do say that you can use both of them together. It is important to remember that they're not instant cures and all cats are different, so might just need to keep trying. To get the best results you need to have it plugged in, in an area that your cats use most and leave it switched on, the affects may take some time to notice, it's certainly not a magic instant cure but it is certainly worth trying.
