What products should I buy for my situation?

Here we will tell you about using our products for a variety of situations, including cats who are not using their litter boxes. We'll discuss litter box aversion, calming cats in general, introducing new cats to the household and more.

Cat Faeries behaviorist gets asked questions all the time, but unfortunately we do not have the time to answer all of your questions via email so we have written up a guide to help you figure out what to order for your situation. We also thought you might like an idea of how long it could take to correct a problem. Keep in mind each situation is unique. There are no rules or guarantees about how long it will take to solve a behavior problem. We aren't telling you what to buy we are offering suggestions based on our years of experience and customer feedback.

If after you've read this section you find that you have specific questions we are happy to help you. Just tell us you read this page so we know not to repeat something you already learned.

Why do cats pee outside of the box?

Cats do not wake up one day and decide to be naughty and make you miserable and drenched in cat pee! There is ALWAYS a trigger or two (perhaps more) for this problem. It could be medical, so before you do anything have your vet test the cat's bladder, kidneys, thyroid, blood sugar, and arthritis. Cats can't tap you on the shoulder or send a text message to inform you that they don't feel well. Instead they might urinate or poop on something in the house to get your attention.

But most likely it is stress - something is bothersome or annoying to the cat. Common annoyances our our indoor cats are: ferals cats, uninvited neighbor's cats,birds and squirrels, mice in the house, dirty litter boxes, or not using the same litter consistently. Cats can't tell us with words, only actions. Product alone may not solve the problems, so if you don't remove or correct the triggers you are fighting an uphill battle.

Experience and customer feedback tells us that the those who use it all get the fastest and most permanent results:

1) Convivial House Cat spray

1) Feliway spray

2) Feliway Diffusers(Feliway Diffusers)

3) At least one of our Flower Essences for Cats formulas

4) Anti Icky Poo to clean and remove cat urine.

This is a Quick Summary of our Products:

Convivial House Cat more info

This is our number pick for problem solving. We formulated this revolutionary product to get cats back to using their litter boxes, and end the fighting and territory wars. Convivial House Cat is versatile because it was formulated in electromagnetized purified water so it's perfectly safe to apply to your cat's food and water as well as spot treating places that have been soiled with urine or feces, and all around the house where the cats co-mingle for harmony and peace.

With your order you'll receive our 4 page guide for usage which will teach you the Cat Faeries Here and There Convivial Technique.

You get approximately 500 pumps or sprays per bottle.

Feliway spray more info

This is the alcohol based pheromone product which you will spot treat where there is urine. It is impossible to say how long one bottle will last because everyone's situation, home size, and amount of locations that need to be treated vary greatly. On average, one bottle lasts 2 weeks of faithful daily usage if the problem is peeing outside the box. For Fighting Felines one bottle should last longer.

You get approximately 500 pumps or sprays per bottle.

Feliway Diffusers more info

These run 24/7/365 to support and boost the effectiveness of Convivial House Cat and/or Feliway spray. The diffusers are good for cats who are fighting and not getting along. The diffusers alone may not stop inappropriate urination but we have seen that when you install one or two in each room where there has been a spray/urinating problem this usually works wonders in addition to Convivial House Cat or Feliway spray. Each diffuser bottle will last 4 weeks. We recommend having a few extra refills on hand. Some customers install two per room, others find one is enough.

Each refill bottle lasts 4 weeks.

Flower Essences more info

We've always been thought leaders in ways to make our modern house cats happy, healthy and well behaved so we professionally created flower essence formulas just for cats. These remedies typify our sensitive and unique viewpoint about the modern house cat to address the emotional causes of behavior problems. Our two best sellers are Multi Cat Household,Territorial Rescue, and Calm and Serene.

Multi Cat Household, Territorial Rescue, and Calm and Serene help with solving feline fighting. Past Abuse has helped cats who have been picked on by other cats, or who came from shelter or unknown circumstances. Kitty Kidney is indispensable and should begin at a young age to keep a cat's kidneys functioning at their best. Elder Support helps keep our elder statescats feeling youthful and spry.

You get approximately 256 drops in our 1 ounce bottle.

Anti Icky Poo more info

This product is a must for removing traces of urine odor, urine proteins, and urine gases. It is the best thing we know for removing traces and odors of cat urine. If you are using other brands you know they are failing miserably! If you are using bleach it won't work and it's toxic. Vinegar and water is fine to quickly blot up the liquid but it will do nothing to permanently remove the urine and it's smells (which are proteins and gases) and because of that your cat will return to that location and do it all over again.

FIND YOUR SITUATION HERE:

Peeing Outside The Box and/or Spraying

We think of this problem in three groups and classify them as:
Mild Case - Moderate Case - Severe Case

Mild Case
  • If only one cat is urinating or spraying
  • If the urine or spraying problem began less than 3 months ago
  • If this happens sporadically or several times a week, or occasionally
  • If there is cat urine in only one room
  • If there is cat urine in one favorite spot, maybe two spots in that room
  • If cat(s) use their litter boxes 95% of the time
  • There is occasional fighting

Solving this problem could take about 2 or 3 months (sometimes longer) of diligent and daily product usage. You may need to use these products "as needed" longer or indefinitely for reinforcement. Most cats will stop, other cats won't stop completely, but the problem is usually lessened so its a rare occurrence and most people feel they can live with that.

Convivial House Cat spray is used to spot treat the areas where you have found urine. You'll use 1 to 2 times a day for 6 to 8 weeks. You don't need a lot of it, no more than 1 or 2 quirts applied to a 7 inch soiled spot. You do need faithful and consistent usage of it.

When you order you'll receive our 4 page handout which will teach you the Cat Faeries Here and There Convivial Technique which you'll use daily.

We suggest at least 2 bottles to start with.

Feliway spray is used to spot treat the areas where you have found urine once or twice daily for 6 to 8 weeks. Apply 1 or 2 squirts to each 7 inch soiled spot. We suggest 2 - 4 bottles to start with.

Feliway Diffusers installed in for each room where you are finding urine. Feliway sends the message "I'm not to leave urine in this room." If the room is large consider two diffusers. You might want to have a diffuser in rooms which have not been urinated in for prevention and general calming. The bottle that comes with your diffuser unit will last one month. Refills are available.

Flower Essences put in cat's food and water on a daily basis will boost the effectiveness of Convivial House Cat or Feliway. Our two best formulas for the urination problem and harmonizing cats are Multi Cat Household, and Territorial Rescue. Customers often get both formulas and rotate them, but generally one of the formulas will be all that's needed for a mild case. See the Flower Essences page for more detail and other formulas that could help your cats. Instructional handout will come with your order.

Anti Icky Poo used on every surface that was soiled with urine.

When the situation is "looking good" you might not need to use the products again or you might need them as needed or occasionally for reinforcement. You might need to use Convivial House Cat spray a few times a week or you might let the diffusers take over. Many of our customers keep a 1/4 bottle of Convivial House Cat on hand in case they need it while others use their spray a few times a week to maintain a peaceful home. Most cats enjoy the flower essences as a forever-thing.

Moderate Case
  • If one or two cats are urinating or spraying or both
  • If the urine or spraying problem began 3 to 12 months ago
  • If this happens several times a week, sometimes daily
  • If there is cat urine in mostly one room, perhaps one other room
  • If there is cat urine in 3 - 5 places per room
  • If cat(s) generally use litter boxes
  • There is fighting which happens several times a week

Solving this problem could take any where from 2 to 6 months (sometimes longer) of diligent daily product usage. Once that period of faithful usage is over may need to use products "as needed" indefinitely. Please note that most cats do stop, but sometimes a cat won't stop completely. In that case the problem is usually lessened so that its a very rare occurrence and most people feel they can live with that.

Convivial House Cat spray to spot treat the areas where you have found urine once a day for 8 weeks - twice a day would be even better if you can fit it into your schedule. One or two squirts applied to a 7 inch spot is all you usually need. It needs to be used daily and it is applied to surfaces. After 8 weeks you might be able to cut back every other day or a few times a week, you'll need to experiment.

When you order you'll receive our 4 page handout which will teach you the Cat Faeries Here and There Convivial Technique which you'll use daily.

We suggest at least 3 bottles to start with.

Feliway spray to spot treat the areas where you have found urine once a day for 8 weeks - twice a day would be even better if you can fit it into your schedule. . One or two squirts at a time applied to a 7 inch spot is all you usually need. It needs to be used daily and it is applied to surfaces. After 8 weeks you might be able to cut back every other day or a few times a week, you'll need to experiment. We suggest 2 - 4 bottles to start.

Feliway diffuser for each room that has been hit with urine. If the room is large consider getting two plug-ins. You might also get a Feliway diffuser for rooms in the house where the cats spend time but have not yet urinated. This could prevent spraying/urinating in those rooms. We suggest getting enough refill bottles to last 3 to 5 months for each plug-in.

Flower Essences put in cat's food and water on a daily basis will boost Convivial House Cat's effectiveness. Our two best formulas for the urination problem and harmonizing cats are Multi Cat Household, and Territorial Rescue. Many customers get both formulas and rotate them. We love Past Abuse for timid cats and have seen wonderful results with cats who were picked on or fearful in general. Calm and Serene can help any cat - the aggressive cat or the shy cat. For Ferals has helped many abandoned cats reconnect with people or if they remain outside it gives quality to their lives. Shelter Shock helps to ease the abandonment and fear of a cat who suddenly ends up in a shelter.

Anti Icky Poo used on every surface that was soiled with urine.

When the situation is "looking good" you might not need to use the products again or you might want to use them occasionally for reinforcement. Some of the products might be a forever-thing. You might need to use Convivial House Cat spray a few times a week or you might let the diffusers take over. Many of our customers keep a 1/4 bottle of Convivial House Cat or Feliway on hand in case they need it. Most cats enjoy the flower essences as a forever-thing.

Severe Case
  • You are at your wits end and feel like you've lost control of your home - it's time for YOU to reclaim it from feisty felines
  • If 2 or more cats are urinating or spraying or both
  • If there is cat urine in more than two rooms
  • If the urine or spraying problem began more than 12 months ago or has been on and off for many years
  • If this happens on a daily basis, several times a day
  • If there are so many urine stains you can't count them all
  • If cat(s) seldom or sporadically use litter boxes
  • There is fighting which can cause injury, daily to many times a week

Solving this problem could take about 3 to 6 months (perhaps longer) of diligent and daily product usage. It's very hard to say how many months it will take when the case is severe. You could be "in for the long haul" but we have seen miraculous things happen in these tough cases, and they can even happen quickly. Other times it's a slow process. Count on using the products for at least 4 or 5 months on a daily basis. Because the problem is so old and severe you might never get it to stop completely, but we should be able to get it so that it's an occasional problem.. You may need to use products "as needed" or indefinitely.

Convivial House Cat spray to spot treat the areas where you have found urine twice a day for 8 - 10 weeks minimum. One or two squirts applied to a 7 inch spot is all you usually need each time you use it. It needs to be used daily and it is applied to surfaces.

When you order you'll receive our 4 page handout which will teach you the Cat Faeries Here and There Convivial Technique which you'll use daily.

We suggest at 4 bottles to start with.

Feliway spray to spot treat the areas where you have found urine twice a day for 8 - 10 weeks minimum. One or two squirts applied to a 7 inch spot is all you usually need. It needs to be used daily and it is applied to surfaces. We suggest at least 3 bottles to start with.

Feliway diffusers installed in each room that has been hit with urine. If the room is large and the cat is hitting every corner and all sides of the room, we suggest that you install two diffusers. Installing additional diffusers in rooms where you have not found urine helps prevent them from spraying/peeing in those rooms and gives a calming effect. We suggest that you get enough refills to last 3 or 6 months.

Flower Essences twice a day in cat's food and water bowl can really help turn a severe situation around. We suggest Multi Cat Household and/or Territorial Rescue.. Some cats might benefit from other formulas such as Past Abuse or Calm and Serene for nervous cats. Formulas can be rotated in any manner that's easy for you - some people do one formula in the morning and another in the evening. See the Flower Essences page for more detail and other formulas that could benefit your cats.

Anti Icky Poo used on every surface that was soiled with urine.

When the situation is "looking good " you might be want to continue with the products for reinforcement several times a week, or Comfort Zone plug ins every day. You might need to use Convivial House Cat spray a few times a week and keep diffusers running. Most cats enjoy the flower essences as a forever-thing.

Cat Poop On the Floor

If your cat has suddenly begun to poop on the floor call your vet and have the cat seen. It could be a health problem, especially in older cats and arthritis comes to mind which makes getting in and out of a litter box painful. The cat might not be liking something about the litter box.

Convivial House Cat spray We suggest you spray it where the cat pooped twice a day for a few days, and re-evaluate your litter box maintenance.

Flower Essences are an excellent idea. Calm and Serene might be a good choice as is Multi Cat Household

Anti Icky Poo used on every surface that was soiled with feces. Steam clean first to get up big pieces.

When the situation is "looking good" you might not need to use the products again, or you'll want to use them occasionally for maintenance. Most cats enjoy the flower essences as a forever-thing.

Fighting Felines

If you have more than one cat the odds are there will be the occasional hissy fit. These generally happen once or twice a week when one cat insults another, tries to crowd another cat out of a sunny spot on the floor, or feels the other is getting more attention, etc. This is all quite normal. But when there is screaming, wild hissing, swatting and biting, and it happens nearly daily then we have Fighting Felines who need some calming down.

Solving this problem can happen quickly or can take several months of dedication from you to provide a peaceful home and to use the correct calming and friend-making products.

Convivial House Cat spray can be used "here and there" throughout the house. The objects that we suggest are sofas, sleeping areas, sunny spots, in closets, under beds, in cat beds, etc once or twice a day for 6 - 8 weeks.

When you order you'll receive our 4 page handout which will teach you the Cat Faeries Here and There Convivial Technique which you'll use daily.

We suggest at 2 or 3 bottles to start with.

Feliway diffusers were created to calm homes with fighting felines. We suggest 1 or 2 in each room where the cats spend most of their time, and in hallways.

Flower Essences will speed up the process of making friends. Some of our customers rotate Multi Cat Household and Territorial Rescue and give both to all of the cats. Past Abuse has been wonderful for the cat who was picked on and bullied. We want to see the cats accepting and tolerating each other and living in peace.

When the situation is "looking good" you might not need to use the products again, however to keep the peace you might want to use Convivial House Cat spray a few times a week and have a few Feliway diffusers scattered around the house Cats find the vibration of Convivial House Cat to be very calming and it makes them happy. Most cats enjoy the flower essences as a forever-thing.

Nervous Cats

Some cats are naturally "fraidy cats." Everything and anything can spook them. If we can provide calming relief for the cat there's a very good chance that the cat's personality will blossom and thrive. You may see your cat go from being timid to bold or at least self confident and happy!

Solving this problem could be ongoing. Some cats run when they hear the door bell or when visitors come to the house and this may never change. Flower essences give us the hope that it will and that your cat and visitors can enjoy each other. For overall and daily happiness you'll see that your cat will start to feel better very soon!

Convivial House Cat is your best bet. Its easy for you to use and one of the key purposes is that it is so calming for cats.

In our 4 page handout you will learn our Cat Faeries Here and There Convivial Technique and get other usage instructions.

We suggest at least 1 to 3 bottles to start with.

Flower Essences will help our jittery friends. Calm and Serene or Past Abuse are great. Even if a cat wasn't truly abused she may think she was - those little things in life could stand out in her mind as traumatic abuse. If you have several cats and one is picked on all of the cats would benefit from Multi Cat Household.

When the situation is "looking good " you might not need to use the products again, however really nervous or jittery cats will never be completely as laid back as other cats. For any changes in the home you might want to start at the beginning again. Some of the products might be a forever-thing. A few Feliway diffusers scattered throughout the house are probably a good idea. Most cats enjoy the flower essences as a forever-thing.

Aggressive Cats

Some cats are naturally crabby and bossy which can lead to aloofness, hissing at the other cats, and unprovoked fighting. Sometimes these cats don't even like some of their human housemates. Let's chill out a cranky kitty. Make sure that the cat is healthy and pain free. Illness and even certain medications can effect a cat's personality and behavior. Ask your vet about medication.

Solving the problem is most likely going to be an ongoing thing. If you've got an alpha cat who takes that job VERY seriously he/she will mostly likely always be Top Cat and rule with an iron paw! But let's mellow kitty out who will ultimately be happier not always being in charge!

Convivial House Cat is probably your best bet. Its easy for you to use and its purpose is for calming. Daily usage through out the house focusing on the places the cats spend most of their time, like beds and sunbeams.

Learn all about the Cat Faeries Here and There Technique and how to use it when you order and receive our 4 page guide.

We suggest at 2 or 3 bottles to start with.

Flower Essences will help our fearless leader. Multi Cat Household, Territorial Rescue, or Calm and Serene are good choices and you could rotate formulas. When there is aggression in the home or a lot of fighting we often suggest all of the cats be given the flower essences. Past Abuse would be nice for the cats who get picked on or stalked.

When the situation is "looking good" you might not need to use the products again, however, even a reformed crabby cat will have her moments! Most cats enjoy the flower essences as a forever-thing.

Introducing a New Cat Or Merging Two Households of Cats

Solving this problem can happen quickly or can take several months - even up to a full year! You need to be patient and keep a cool head, take it slowly, as well as provide a peaceful home. Supervise slow and calm "get acquainted sessions" ending each session on a positive note (stop and separate the cats before there's any serious hissing or attempts at fighting). Use the correct calming and friend-making products every day until they've bonded and become friends.

Convivial House Cat spray is your feline family's new best friend! When you order our 4 page handout will teach you our Convivial House Cat Here and There Technique for happy friendly felines! Among the places you'll spray it: sofas, sleeping areas, sunny spots, doorways etc) once or twice a day for 6 - 8 weeks. If cats are in separate rooms spray those rooms and spray both sides of the door for when they sniff at each other from their respective side of the door.

Feliway diffuers will help when installed in the rooms your cats spend the most time in. Depending upon the size of the room we suggest 1 or 2 per room.

Flower Essences coupled with Convivial House Cat will speed up the process of making friends. Many of our customers rotate Multi Cat Household and Territorial Rescue. One formula could be used in the morning and the other in the evening. You'll get a detailed handout for flower essences when you order.

When the situation is "looking good" you'll probably want to continue with your flower essence formulas and Convivial House Cat daily or cut back to a few times a week. Most cats enjoy the flower essences as a forever-thing.

Cats Scratching on Furniture and Rugs

Solving this problem is tricky. Cats often can't resist a sofa covered in a nice textured fabric. But you can help by trimming the cat's nails about every 10 - 14 days. Also provide a "cat condo" that's taller than 4 feet so that it won't tip over. Cats love condos with tiers for resting and playing. Most cats enjoy a mix of carpet and sisal.

Convivial House Cat spray used daily helps slow down the frequency of cats scratching at furniture. It does not work 100% of the time, your cat might still scratch on occasion. Spray daily for a few weeks to see if your cat responds and stops scratching. You may need to use the spray several times a week for reinforcement. Convivial House Cat spray is more effective on "vertical scratching" than on "horizontal scratching (rugs).

Cats produce pheromones in three parts of their bodies. The pheromones from their cheeks give the friendly message of "Hi there, I like you, I'm happy." The pheromones that come out with their urine and feces are very different and tell other cats "Hey buddy, this is my territory."
