Feliway and Weeing Cats

“The secret to happy cats” apparently. And is supposed to stop the little sh*ts weeing all over the house.

Feliway was my last resort – I’ve mainly been trying to avoid the expense of it, but I am at my wit’s end with my cat problem. I have a brother and sister who will not stop weeing around the house. They have their favourite spots, but they’re happy to do it anywhere really. I’ve tried lemon and vinegar splattered in the areas they like to go, but that doesn’t work. I bought a spray from the pet shop called Stop Griffes Chat, and that doesn’t work. Tin foil puts them off for a while, but they just go next to it – I can’t cover the entire house with tin foil! I clean their trays regularly – they have one enclosed one, and another open one. So I bought the recommended Feliway diffuser.

I bought it from ebay for £15, which is loads cheaper than from the vet, and it arrived yesterday. I can’t smell it at all, but the cats stopped to have a sniff. I plugged it in in the living room, right by one of their weeing spots. As usual, last night, I shut them in my study with the 2 trays, and their food and water. During the night one of them weed on the bag of paper recycling. I’ve started putting them outside staight away in the morning, because they’ve been known to go somewhere as soon as I let them out. So after half an hour of being in the garden, I let them in and go upstairs for about 10 minutes. I come down and one of them has weed about 30cm away from the feliway diffuser.

So much for that then. It seems my cats are in the 30% that Feliway doesn’t work for. Another waste of money. Any other suggestions would be welcomed!

Victor Frankenstein starring James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe
March 10, 2016
This review is coming from the point of view of someone who has never read Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein or seen any other film about it, and first thing I can say is that I don’t think that mattered at all, and may have even been better that way. I mean, Mary Shelley wrote the book in 1818 where-as the film was set roughly 1870s I would say, judging from my recent in-depth research into the late Victorian period. I couldn’t find any definitive information on this online either, so perhaps the film-makers deliberately kept the date ambiguous. It peaked my interest though; particularly as the beginning is set at a circus…
The romance of a well
November 18, 2016
I was pretty much brought up on Enid Blyton and it instilled in me a desire to live in a cute cottage in a countryside village. A well in the garden would be an added bonus. Well, although more of a farmhouse than a cottage, I am lucky enough to have fulfilled that dream. We were told by the previous owner that the well in the garden used to also serve the farmworkers’ cottages opposite. The path leading from the well to an iron gate half way down the garden would suggest that’s true. We live at the top of a hill, and as far as I’m aware, the only other well at the top of the hill in Somerset is in a small village called Kilmersdon, which is famous for the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme. Wouldn’t it be cool if that’s a mistake and it was actually our well? Haha!….
Jeremy Loops concert at Perranporth, Cornwall
September 14, 2016
The campervan couldn’t get into the main car park at Perranporth by about three inches, so we parked on the cliff-top, which gave us a beautiful view of the bay and sun beginning to set into the ocean. It isn’t often bands we like venture into the South-West and we were gutted when Jeremy Loops tickets for Bristol sold out before we had chance to buy some; however it was the perfect excuse to go to Cornwall when we saw he was playing there too. We’d never been to The Watering Hole before – it’s a cafe/restaurant/gig venue literally in the middle of the beach. It must’ve been a right pain in the bum to get all the band gear over there! The tickets said the doors opened at nine, so we got there about ten minutes early, sorted out our wrist-bands and bought a drink to sit outside with and watch the sun sink into the water….
