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!

Adagio teas
Tea for people who don’t like tea! (And for those who do.)
October 3, 2018
When Adagio Teas asked if I’d like to work with them, I had to be honest in my reply; that I don’t actually like tea. On my trips to America, this is like saying I’m not actually British, but my main disgruntle is that I couldn’t join in with all the beautiful Instagrams of cups of tea! I do, however like fruit infusions, and the mango flavoured tea I had at the Jane Austen Centre a couple of weeks ago was very nice, so I asked if I could try their flavoured tea….
Rogue theatre company review
Review of The Firebird by the Rogue Theatre Company in Cornwall
August 31, 2018
Imagine, if you will, being met by a fairy at the edge of magical woodland, and led down a secret pathway shaded by old twisted rowan and chattering leaves of beech, but lit by glinting lights strung through the branches. Each way you turn you’re met with strange and eerie settings of mysterious white princess bedrooms, strangely metallic baby clothes hanging on a line; gothic ravens adorning old books; abandoned tea parties disturbingly strewn with red; and odd antique paintings foreseeing the future; each with its character singing, dancing or otherwise performing as you pass. And that’s just the beginning…..
Negotiating lipstick with piercings and a wonky mouth!
March 3, 2017
I have never really worn lipstick. In my mind, it just hasn’t suited me – I have a very thin top lip and and a very fat bottom lip and overall my mouth is very lop-sided. I could happily go on being self-critical, but I won’t! I also think part of the problem is I was trying the wrong colours – brown was very much the fashion in the ’90s when I was playing around with make-up, and although I never really thought lipstick fashions were a thing, I have noticed that brown lipsticks are back….
