Your cat is not the most courageous cat and may flee or get scared around visitors or other animals or when left alone for too long. However, there are some ways to help your skittish kitty learn to be more confident. Create cat only hiding areas (beds, cardboard boxes etc.) throughout your home, so they have plenty of opportunity to hide and know they have an escape. Hiding helps by avoiding any stressful situations, enabling your cat to cope.
FELIWAY CAN HELP!
Using FELIWAY CLASSIC Spray when introducing these safe places can be really beneficial, it will make the areas feel extra special and safe for your cat by spraying ‘comforting messages’ in the area, on blankets or bedding. Your cat will always love reassurance, so continue to give the same love and affection daily.
For extra support and comfort FELIWAY CLASSIC Diffuser can help. Just plug this in the room your cat spends the most time in and this builds their confidence and makes them feel safer, calmer and reduce the amount of time spent hiding. Anxious cat owners love FELIWAY as it enables their cat to spend more time with them.
