In terms of the stress she is in I might suggest Feliway (it's a plug in scent diffuser that calms cats) it might not completely fix her anxiety but may soothe her a bit.

Best of luck for you and your darling cat.

u/songbird0519 · 6 pointsr/Pets

It's a synthetic version of a hormone that makes the cat comfortable, less anxiety, less destruction. The description on Amazon probably explains it better than I can!

Anyway, I feel for you. Hope you find something that works. I agree with the other posters, the change in his buddy being gone (even if they weren't really buddies) may have just provoked anxiety in him.


u/KaitlynnS · 3 pointsr/cats

One thing you may want to try as well is Feliway.

It mimics a comforting pheromone that may help.

Linky: Feliway with diffuser

u/cmcg1227 · 3 pointsr/breakingmom

This is going to sound ridiculous, but if you're willing to spend a few bucks, can I suggest Feliway? It might not do jack shit, but my sister swears by the stuff.

u/Crystaleyes · 3 pointsr/cats

I forgot to mention that you may want to try a product called Feliway by Comfort Zone: https://www.amazon.com/Comfort-Zone-Feliway-Diffuser-Calming/dp/B00I9SI40S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1492095290&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=comfort+zone+feliway&psc=1
It comes as a diffuser or in a spray. It may help to calm her.

u/dorenello · 3 pointsr/cats

either one will work, or not work. it's a 50/50 thing. just go with the cheapest. this one has a coupon:


u/NochaQueese · 3 pointsr/tifu

Seconding the getting a relaxer. I recommend feliway as it works wonders for our cat. Plug that in in the office and let it be the kitty's safe zone. Also, make sure kitty gets lots of play time during the day. Cats will default to night mode if you give them a chance so you want them to be nice and worn out. Laser pointers work well for getting them maximum worn out with minimum effort!

u/midwintermoons · 3 pointsr/Wicca

Shadow is probably very stressed out right now. Moving houses is a nightmare for cats because they depend on everything being the same from day to day. There are four things I would recommend looking into.

First is, if I'm understanding correctly, she has free access to the entire house, but only hisses in your bedroom? If that's the case, have there ever been any other cats or dogs kept in that bedroom? Could there be another cat's scent in there, maybe from a cat spraying or having litter box problems? A black light flashlight can help you find these spots on the carpet and walls if they're there, and then you can use an enzymatic cleaning product called Nature's Miracle to remove the scent. Remember, cats can smell things that we can't.

One of the pheremonal calming products people have been mentioning is Feliway. I think you could really benefit from a diffuser for your room. I know it says it's for scratching and urine marking, but it works for stress in general. It does also come in sprays which you can spray on certain things like cat carriers, furniture, etc. but supposedly it does need pretty frequent application, just so you know. Don't be discouraged if the diffuser doesn't seem to work right away. It can take a week or more but I've seen a definite improvement for my cats.

You might also want to pick up a book called Think Like a Cat, or something similar. There are so many things we as humans do that cats find threatening, startling, upsetting, etc. and we don't even know it. The truth is that she is hissing at you for a reason, whether it's the way you're approaching her, something she now associates with you, who knows. I bet you could figure it out with some insight from a good source.

One final thing that's pretty important. Cats who hiss, growl, or jump when touched sometimes are doing so because they're in pain. Pay attention to how exactly she's reacting to you. Especially since you say she has a heart problem, it's possible that she is physically uncomfortable. You may want to explain what's happening to your vet and see if they can find a physical cause.

And of course... a little sprinkling of fairy dust for luck ;)

u/Gruesome · 3 pointsr/cats

Second u/loridee's advice...also, check out Feliway. It's supposed to emit feel-good pheromones to make them feel safe and secure. I bought the diffuser because we took our cats on a trip with us in our motor home! I think it made a big difference.

u/EarlofBlackthorne · 2 pointsr/cats

Man, that's a tough one. It's going to take some hard work, but it can be done.

I also have a male and female who were altered as kittens but it's the 9 year old male who is the problem. I call him "The Piddler" and am hoping that someday Catman shows up to dispense justice. :D j/k

Seriously though, up until recently it's been enzymatic urine removing spray, and blocking access to the problem areas.

After doing some research, I've found that cats tend to present this kind of behavior when they feel very stressed or feel that their territory is being encroached.

I've had some pretty good luck with a few Feliway Diffusers that dispense a drug-free, odorless vapor that mimics a cat’s natural calming pheromones.

They take a bit to fully kick in but you do start to see positive results pretty quick. I have three of them dispersed throughout the house and they really seem to do the trick.

I've also had luck with an extra litter tray. What I've read says "you should have one extra littler tray than you have cats". So you might think about having three litter trays in various locations in the house and staying on top of making sure they stay cleaned out.

So, I guess it all boils down to this:

  • Taking a good hard look at things that are potentially causing your female to feel stressed or threatened, and doing your best to remove the triggers.

  • Giving your cat a little extra positive attention in order to try to reassure her that her place in the house is secure.

  • Making sure the areas affected are kept super clean.

  • Adding an extra litter tray.

  • And, (I'm not trying to sell you a product or anything) installing a few of those Feliway things. (Man, they have really helped to drastically alter the behavior.)

    Good luck! Like I said, it's going to take some work on your part but you can help provide a more comforting environment for your problem kitty by just taking a few steps to help her along the path of a piddle free existence.
u/compacthippo · 2 pointsr/askredddit

You should try feliway. Its a diffuser with the scent of a mother cats pheromone, it's scentless to us but it calm cats down!
This is the link to amazon.ca where I got mine! ---> https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B00I9SI40S/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1493451607&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=feliway+cat+diffuser&dpPl=1&dpID=51kvBrWP9GL&ref=plSrch

u/MotherCybele · 2 pointsr/Pets

Try plugging in a Feliway. They are diffusers that release calming hormones into the air. They are very effective at calming cats down in stressful situations.

I would also suggest boarding up the hiding spots near the ground and give him a nice big cat tree. If he gets up higher he will feel more comfortable. The enclosed hiding spots on the ground will only help him to feel more stressed.

Each day go in and sit. Read a book, listen to quiet music, or work on a craft. Don't talk or look at the cat. Just let him get used to your presence.

u/omen77 · 2 pointsr/cats

Yes, take her to the vet. In case it's something physical.

Another thing you should do is get Feliway which is a pheromone that helps cats feel more relaxed / particularly a kitten who has been separated from his litter / mama. Feliway comes in a form that emulates the pheromones put out by the mother cat. We got it for our girl cat who was very skittish. In a couple weeks she was like a totally different cat. It can work wonders:


u/Penizette · 2 pointsr/veterinarians

stay calm, your cat is reacting to stress. When cats are stressed they start marking their territory nuteured or not.

At the pet store get some cat urine cleaning products and get some calming medication for the cat, it is hurt and needs to rest, but obviously it cannot as it is very stressed out.

Do not punish the cat, punishing will result in more stress and more marking.
Give the pet love, favorite treats and vet provided medicine or just get this
Feliway Diffuser
But your cat sounds like it is in pain and needs some sleeping pills or pain relievers, please consult your vet

u/aether_dancer · 2 pointsr/internetparents

Once you rule everything out with the vet, try Feliway. It saved out psycho kitty, and she is back to her sweet loving self after a few weeks. This was after 3 months of constant attacks to myself, my husband, and our other animals. Not to mention hundreds and hundreds of $ on vet bills. (sigh)

But yeah, better than kitty prozac, cheaper too.

u/QueenCameo · 2 pointsr/Pets

Hi. I had to transition 2 house cats with my fiance 3 cats. All girls except 1, and all fixed but the kitten. That... well the first day - week was an establishment period for laying claim and associating our bedroom as "home." Living room, kitchen, dining room, etc.. was "outside" and to not be trusted. That period lasted about 3 weeks then we introduced my cat, Cameo. She is a rescue (all cats here are in some form) and very very stubborn and has a high confidence in what is hers and carries this aura of "don't even get near me or I will punch the Fuck out of you." True story, many months later, kitten got to close, Cameo gave her warnings, Kitten choose the warnings didn't apply to her so she chopped and moved closer. Cameo heard the boxing ring bell go off and raised her right arm and balled her paw (into a fist! she's long hair so it looked like gloves) and bopper the Fuck out of Kittens head 4-5 times with enough force that Kitten chipped and turned away and poor thing shook her head for several seconds. I had even heard when the huts landed so I can imagine she got a jostle. Now for those thinking that's mean, in cat world that's how you stop a cat from being a douche around you and to retain a lesson.

Kitten, and everyone else, chirps and goes out of their way to avoid being near Cameo. Some may call her a bully but she is 12yo and I have had her since she was 4 months old. It's her land dammit!

It took my fiance about 6 months to be allowed to pet Cameo, a year she would walk up to him and ask for pettings. We did use Feliway from Amazon. I will get the link and edit post with link. The Feliway was awesome and we put it in 3 main rooms. Wayyy cheaper on amazon and my own vet recommended it.

Let us know how it goes. I don't know how joining dogs and cats but I know what we did. We did more stuff but it's late. Good luck!

Edit: not at pc so not sure how to do links and I took my Ambien so that's the other half so I'm going to paste link and prettier it up tomorrow!


u/jlevy1126 · 2 pointsr/tampa

I wiah I could but a couple years ago I basically did the same thing. I used this kinda stuff to help calm my older cat. He originally couldn't stand the kitten but after a couple of months he tolerated the kitten. Now you can catch them grooming each other at times but the younger cat is boisterous so the older cat tends to keep away.

Good luck!

u/BournGamer · 1 pointr/AskVet

First off, thanks so much for the reply!

Now in regards to what you said...

  • I get the feeling that stress is probably the cause but I'm honestly unsure of ways to calm him. He likes to play but he very picky with how/when that happens.

  • A tree/more vertical space is probably long overdue

  • Do you know if this would be good for his stress?

  • We currently have two litter boxes and are tight on space but I suppose a third could work

  • Thanks for the suit idea! It could save me a lot of time
u/czer0wns · 1 pointr/cats

I bought a 2-pack of Feliway two weeks ago, and my cats no longer fight. Had 2 of them that would tussle several times a day, and they slept together on the bed last night for the first time.

So yeah, in my opinion, they work.


u/hgbleackley · 1 pointr/Pets

It will take a while while they both adjust. I was in a similar position; my female cat could have been better and we wondered if she needed a friend. We got one, a kitten, and did the long method of introduction (which involves keeping the new cat/kitten in a separate room for about a week! I can go into more detail if you want). It went well. They are good friends now, and my first cat has benefitted immensely from having a companion.

It's a tough choice; if they don't get along, neither will be happy (not to mention YOU won't be happy either!). But if they do, you could be providing a richer environment for your existing kitty, and saving another from the shelter.

If you are unsure, I would see what options the shelter has, like if, after a month, you know it's not going to work, can they take the kitty back. That would suck for the cat from the shelter, but in the end they should go to a home where they'd work out forever.

Oh I have a suggestion- to make the transition easier for both animals, try getting a pheromone diffuser- I did it and I think it helped in the adjustment process. Feliway was what I used and I will recommend it! It doesn't work for every cat, but if it does it really works. It worked for my problem cat and made quite a difference.

I hope you try getting a second cat and that it works out. Good luck!

u/crazy_cat_lady_5 · 1 pointr/cats

My female cat had a horrible habit of peeing and pooing in rooms where we'd buy new stuff. For instance I bought a feather blanket, she promptly pee'd on it. Bought home a new bath rug, promptly poo'd on it. She hated change. Our vet suggested a ComfortZone plug-in and it worked perfectly. It calms the cat down and relaxes them so they don't act out as much. You plug it into the wall and change it out in about 30 days. I would start with just one in the problem room. We had two initially and after a while we stopped using them with no more problems.

When we moved and bought a new couch I was afraid the move and new furniture would trigger her stress again so I put one in the living room with the new couch and one in the room where we kept the litter. No problems at all! They also make a spray and we used that on her cat bed during the move to keep her calm. In our opinion it really did wonders! I hope that helps!

Edit: Just wanted to mention that there is no scent to the human nose. It's like pheromones only the cat detects.

u/Ellaana · 1 pointr/OctoberBumpers2017

I have the same problem with one of my cats. We've had luck in the past with this pheromone stuff, but it doesn't fix everything. We've ended up just locking her in a room by herself with a litter box. Seems to have fully solved her anxiety. My husband works from home in that room with her so she still gets attention.

If you haven't tried before, this stuff has been great for us. It doesn't work for every problem/cat, but I had a lot of luck with it. Sorry you have to deal with this, I know how heartbreaking and frustrating it is.

u/1finefeline · 1 pointr/Pets

I would say give Feliway a try. I was a non-believer until I tried it for my cat with anxiety and I can't believe the difference, it started working within just a few hours. She calmed down and was once again willing to do normal things like eat, use the litter box, etc. without being scared of everything she saw.

u/Jashyk · 1 pointr/cats

Yup, like this http://www.amazon.com/Comfort-Zone-Feliway-Diffuser-Kit/dp/B00I9SI40S/ref=sr_1_1?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1464190209&sr=1-1&keywords=feliway

We use one of these until it runs out, then we just buy refills when our cats start to get stir crazy again. You don't need to be running them all the time.

It seems to help calm down our one wild cat when he can't sleep. Just put it in a higher traffic area that she walks by a lot, we have ours in the hallway, but you could even put it right in your bedroom if you want for max effect.

Worth a shot!

u/kittenmommy · 1 pointr/AskVet

> He did hundreds of dollars of damage trying to escape and attacking everything. Including furnitures, old furnitures in wood that are hundred years old. I just don't know how I can keep him inside.

Yikes. Have you tried Feliway?

u/vannah08510 · 1 pointr/cats

My cat plays hard too. Undercover (different brand names, but I have the purple one) has this rod that rotates in circles with fabric over the top. Two AA batteries will last it quite some time. (SmartyKat Hot Pursuit Cat Toy Concealed Motion Toy https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EZTCW94/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_zDtEybK2W9YAK)

The hexbug I spoke of is about the same price but you'll only find it online on amazon or ebay. It's this tiny nano but thing that zooms all over the floor (hard floors only) and when my cat bats it over it gets back up. With this one you just have to make sure it's in a space where it won't get stuck so you have to fish it out (under the fridge for example) (Nano Robotic Cat Toy (White/Blue) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RWU17KS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_9DtEybKTBTQHP)

A daily dose of catnip calms my buddy down as well.

PetSafe SSScat https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000RIA95G/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_PFtEybJ577FA5

You can actually buy cheaper air cans than the brand name for refills.

Here's a different brand--more budget friendly: SENTRY Stop That! For Cats, 1 oz https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EG8LIN0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_2HtEyb200JW77

Pheromone diffuser: Comfort Zone Feliway Diffuser Kit for Cats https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I9SI40S/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_kJtEybF3F4QSX

Remember, chewy.com is your friend. They may have some of these items for cheaper.

Also remember that cats don't understand punishment. If you yell or try to correct, sometimes they'll continue the behavior to seek attention even if it's negative attention. Best thing to do is to be consistent with your reactions and redirect the behavior of possible (example: cat scratches furniture---redirect by placing cat on cardboard scratch pad with catnip each time) and give your cat what he needs. Sounds like he has a lot of energy. So a toy that plays with him when you aren't able may be helpful. Pheromone diffuser was really helpful for my cat when he was so stressed from moving that he got sick.

My cat used to be extremely Velcro. He would cry like hell if I closed a door on him. So I don't anymore. He follows me from room to room most often but does his own thing. When he starts meowing I know he needs play time or food or enrichment of some kind. When I go to bed, he goes to bed. He doesn't sleep with me usually. Most often under the bed or on his cat tree.

Groupon, chewy.com, or amazon, or even EBay are good places to get the items I mentioned for less.

Nutrition is also really important for a cats health. Dry food is actually really bad for its health. Can cause urine crystals, weight gain, dehydration, etc. Even if it's just friskies it's better to have wet food than dry if you're on a budget

As for your boyfriend, try having him see a doctor to get on seroquel if he's able. Its often prescribed to people for sleeping problems. I take it, and within the hour I fall asleep and don't wake up until 8 hours later. Also tends to help with mood problems for some people. Kratom is a great natural opiate/pain reducer that is taken in pill form. You can find it at some vape/smoke shops. It's much less addictive and better long term than vicodine and its siblings.. Obviously I'm not a doctor or anything so take this advice with a grain of salt.

u/EdenBlade47 · -1 pointsr/pics

>we punish him

Well like I just said, that won't do anything. Ever. The chances of that having any positive effect on his behavior is exactly 0. So fuck off with that, you're pointlessly pissing off the cat and achieving no results.

Keep the litterboxes as clean as possible, which is easy enough to do with a cleaning in the morning and at night- shouldn't take more than 5 minutes. Make sure they're big enough for the cat and deep enough for enough litter (3" deep is generally recommended). Use this shit. It's cheap and cats love it. Don't have a litterbox near where they eat, cats like to keep all their businesses separate- food, water, and litter locations shouldn't be close together.

"Litterboxes" wasn't a typo by the way, the rule of thumb is that you should have one litterbox per cat in the house plus an additional litterbox. One cat = two boxes, two cats = three boxes, three cats = four boxes etc etc etc. Have them be somewhat spread throughout the house. Have one in your room or bathroom if your cat goes there a lot.

If your cat is "marking" aggressively then pheromone diffusers can sometimes help, but it really varies from individual to individual and it can take 2 weeks or so before it typically has a result, so it's kind of frustrating to use it if it doesn't end up doing anything. If you're out of options then you may as well try, though.

Is your cat declawed by any chance? Declawed cats fucking despise litter because it irritates their amputated toe stumps so they tend to poop outside of the box.
