Feliway Diffuser is Must Have Multiple Cat Homes




Like many cat lovers I have a multiple cat home. They are age 1 year to age 10 and they do not see eye to eye on everything. Daily I need to break up cat hissy fits fur yo one of them being territorial with their toys, litter box, or if a cat walks into their space.




I have talked at my cat meetings and found out that many people have multiple cat homes and that their cats do not get along all of the time.  
Cats are funny, they can sleep together, groom each other and seem like best friends but then out of the blue their tempers will flair and before you know it you hear hiss, snarl and the claws are brought out. Kitty wants to fight with their best buddy and if you do not run to break it up the cats may go at it and the fur may fly.



Granted we may think that the fight was brought on for no reason but for a cat that is territorial that is a just reason. Your cat may be suffering from stress from a new person in the house, or a new pet. Plus any movement of furniture or their litter box is enough to cause your cat to be upset. Know that any changes to their routine is enough to cause your happy cat to feel anxious and you bet they will take their frustrations out on another cat or they will mark your sofa, wall or chair.



It is safe to say that I have tried a variety of things to bring harmony back to my multiple cat home and found that the best product was the least expensive and it worked like magic. My veterinarian suggested that I buy Feliway Diffusers at Chewy.com, because this online pet store offered the best prices. I searched and found the website and bought the products needed for my home.



I plugged the diffusers into my electrical outlet and when they heated up it released a kitty pleasing pheromone into the air. This pheromone calmed all of the cats down and brought harmony back to our home.




Know that I recommend this product because I found that it it works. You can view this video and it will show you the before and after effects of the feliway diffuser when used as a treatment for a cat that is feeling anxious.

Low Carbohydrate Canned Food for Healty Cat

Today my veterinarian told me that the reason why cats are getting sick, obesity, urinary tract infection and diabetes is because of their diet.    In my defense I fed the cat a well known high quality kibble that was mixed with canned food and two tablespoons of water.  I stand corrected the fact that I was feeding my stray feral and rescued cats dry kibble was the main reason they were getting fat.



Dry food has fillers and the fillers are usually rice or grains and these foods are carbohydrates which are not good for cat that are carnivorous.  I was told to change my cats diet to a high protein, low fat and low carbohydrate food with no grains, soy or corn.  A pate food is better than a gravy formula, because gravy usually has a thickening agent and this will cause the carbohydrates and fat to increase.


So I began my  search at Pet Smart and  found many grain free foods that had high protein and low fat, none of the foods gave me a breakdown for the carbohydrates.    I wrote the name of the foods and called the manufactures to get the nutritional breakdown and to find out the percentage of carbs. 

Here is a list of high protein, low fat and very low carbohydrate canned foods.

Natures Variety Instinct
Chicken 10% protein 6.5% fat 2.13 Carbohydrate
Duck 9% protein 5.5 fat 1.82 Carbohydrate
Rabbit 10% protein 4.5 fat 1.26 Carbohydrate
Venison 11.9% protein 6.0 fat 0.00 Carbohydrate (BEST Food)
Beef 11% protein 5.5 fat 1.58 Carbohydrate
