Cat Faeries’ flower essences for cats: a success story from our customer Sherry

Two very nice messages from our customer Sherry about Cat Faeries’ flower essences for cats


Hi, I just wanted to let you know the success I am seeing with your Flower essences I ordered recently. I have 5 cats that have been having behavior issues since my latest cat came to live with us 3 years ago. I have used flower essences from other reputable companies but had limited success. I ordered your Territorial Rescue and Multi Cat. I already had Comfort Zone. I started using your essences and right away I noticed less tension among the cats and things have been getting better every day. Less fighting and less marking. I have also noticed the cats can tolerate each other being closer to each other and seem to play alone more and watching for the other cat’s reaction. I give the essences in their food and water and spray the comfort zone on the areas they have marked before. I also make a treatment bottle of essences with a few drops in a small bottle and spray that around the house. I am sure that with my continued use of your essences that I can get may cat family back on track. I am hooked and will be ordering more when I run out. I think the kitties will be getting some of your cat toys for Christmas this year too. The reviews are great and if they behave Santa just might have a few of your toys in his bag!!

Thank your for making a product that really does work!!

Sincerely,

Sherry Y.


I think you are right that your essences are stronger because of the way they are made. It only makes sense that a live plant would give off more of the essence that a dead one would. Whatever it is they really do work much better than the essences I have used before.

I will be ordering Calm and Serene essence when I order again as I have one kitty that is rather high strung. Her being like that kind of riles everyone up. She is doing good with what I am doing but I think she needs a little more to take the edge off her energy.

Thank you again! What a nice surprise. You are a cat angel!

Sincerely,

Sherry Y.

Tips on how to get the most from your Cat Faeries products

Here’s some tips from our thrifty cat behaviorist. Remember, you get full detailed instructions with your order for all of these Cat Faeries products.

Cat toys, making them last, keeping them fresh & clean

  • Store catnip toys in a Zip lock bag. Press as much air out as you can, then seal.
  • Use Scotch tape or packing tape to remove fuzz and dust (just like you do to remove cat fur from your clothes).
  • If your cat pees on a toy: lightly mist with Anti Icky Poo several times over a day or two, then let dry completely.
  • If your cat hurls a fur ball on a cat toy: scrape off what you can, then lightly mist Anti Icky Poo several times over the course or a day, then let dry completely.

Remembering to use your Comfort Zone with Feliway spray. Don’t put it out of sight, out of mind!

  • Store it in a place that you go to every day so you get the visual prompt to use it.
  • Suggestions:
    • near the coffee maker
    • near the your toothbrush
    • on top of the TV or by the remote control
    • on the coffee table or an end table
  • If you are correcting a problem use your spray two or three times a day.
  • If you are maintaining your efforts and the cats are being good, use it once a day or a few times a week.

Places to NOT store Feliway spray

  • near the fire place
  • near the stove or oven
  • near the heater

Remembering to swap out a spent Comfort Zone with Feliway diffuser refill for a new one:

  • Order from us and get stickers for your calendar or appointment book. And use them!
  • Your stickers will help you to know that your diffuser is working properly. If your refill bottle lasts longer or shorter than 4 weeks it’s time to replace it.

Taking good care of your Feliway diffuser to make it last a long time:

  • The manufacturer says a diffuser will last 6 months. Because we take good care of ours we’ve had the same ones for many years.
  • Every few months unplug your diffuser and with a damp Q-tip remove built up dust and crud.
  • Don’t bang the vacuum cleaner into the diffuser as your clean your floors.
  • Be careful to not drop it when you change your refill bottles.

Cat Faeries Flower Essences For Cats – where to store them, how to handle the dropper:

  • It’s best to store them in a cabinet, but if that’s not practical then find a darkish corner in your kitchen. Ours tend to end up in a kitchen corner so we see them every morning when we change the cat’s water bowl.
  • If you broke your dropper – ask us for a new one when you place your next order. We’ll send one free.
  • Don’t let the dropper touch your fingers, or fall to the floor or countertop. If that happens, don’t panic, rinse it under filtered water and place it back in the bottle. Dirt and oils from fingers can contaminate the waters.
  • NEVER put the glass dropper in the cat’s mouth! That’s why our handout is full of great ways to administer flower essences: food, water, anoint.

Cat Beds – we’ve had some of ours since the 1990’s!

  • Always wash them in COLD water with mild soap
  • Always air dry, never machine dry
  • So that your bed dries fast, grasp the outer velveteen, and the inner fleece and pull them apart to form a <> shape. This allows air to flow and speed up drying time.

Anti Icky Poo – how long it will last and a clever use for it.

  • Unopened it will last 3 years.
  • Opened it should be used within 1 year.
  • Store it under the sink or a cool place.
  • Keep it upright so it doesn’t leak.
  • If you’ve got some left over and it’s getting old – pour it down the kitchen drain and it will eat up soap scum and grease! Leave it sit for about an hour if you can.

“My female housecat isn’t spayed and I don’t see why I should do it.” The Wizard of Veterinary Medicine will tell you why, and with humor.

Good golly, it still amazes us that in 2013 we still need to have this conversation about spaying. Dr. Richard Orzeck, DVM who calls himself Dr. Oz the Wizard of Veterinary Medicine tells us why it’s vital to spay a female cat and he’s funny about it too. We are presenting two of his articles, one which is very funny, and one which is more scientific. Both are well done and informative, you’ll enjoy both and if you have friends who need coaxing about spaying, please forward this newsletter.

How long do Comfort Zone with Feliway diffuser plug-ins last?

Comfort Zone with Feliway diffuser plug-in at CatFaeries.com

Our customer Kit asked us this question recently and we thought everyone would like some insight (and a sale!).

The manufacturer says the diffusers typically function well for 6 months and after that they should be replaced. However, we find this is far from typical! Our customers report that most of their Comfort Zone with Feliway diffuser plug-ins are still going after years of continued use. Personally, we have many of the same diffusers we installed over 10 years ago.

You will notice on those older diffusers that residue collects on the white ball shaped portion. This is normal. It’s the oil which has migrated upwards. And it’s easy to clean off – remove the diffuser from the outlet and take a damp Q-tip to remove the oil and the dust which is clinging to it.

If your Feliway refill bottles are running out in 4 weeks time then your diffuser is still working perfectly. If your refill bottles take longer than 4 weeks then it’s time to replace the diffusers.

Can a cat in mourning become aggressive?

Dear Cat Faeries,

I purchased Past Abuse flower essence formula for my other cat and it worked beautifully. My male cat is having problems as I lost my husband a year ago and the cat really loved him. Now he is getting ornery and hard to get him to mind and he picks on the little female cat who is a lot smaller then he is. I need to get him calmed down.

Sharon in Arizona

—————————————————-

Dear Sharon,

I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of your husband and that your cat is taking it so hard. This isn’t unusual as we know that cats do feel love and can bond very deeply with their favorite person.

You wisely ordered Calm and Serene flower essence formula. We also recommend Forget Me Not which is our flower essence formula for bereavement. It will address grief, loss, abandonment, guilt, fear, and loneliness.

It’s possible he blames the other cat for your husband’s “disappearance” from his world. He might also be afraid that he’s next to vanish or die. The two formulas used together should help him feel better, feeling safe and secure. You can use one formula in the morning and the other in the evening. Or one in his food and the other in the water bowl. And it’s perfectly ok for the smaller cat to consume the flower essences – she could use some calming down too!
