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!

How to host an afternoon tea party
October 18, 2016
Yes I know it’s not exactly the weather for this in the garden any more, but it can still be done inside! My daughter didn’t want to go out on the piss for her eighteenth birthday last month – partly because she’s the first of her friends to turn legal in pubs, so it wouldn’t be much fun getting drunk on her own – and partly because that’s not really her sort of thing anyway. For now at least! So it was her idea to have afternoon tea in the garden with a nod to an Alice in Wonderland theme….
making a new patio area
Making a social outdoor dining area
September 16, 2018
We have been dragging our heels for ages over buying a new set of outdoor furniture. Our old wooden table and chairs are well and truly rotting away. We have also had it in our minds to build a verandah at the back of the house, leaning against the kitchen wall. However, each spring has come along and we’ve ended up spending any spare money we’ve had on a holiday instead. So it hasn’t happened, but the idea was still there, and it made a choice on the garden furniture difficult to make…..
Making a floral display with vintage bottles
How to make an easy but impressive floral display for the whole year
October 9, 2017
I have a thing for old bottles. Whenever I see one in a flea market or boot sale, I always pick it up; wonder what it once held and who in its history has owned it; but end up putting it down again because I’ve never had a reason to buy it (aren’t I good?!). However, I’ve finally thought of a reason to buy a whole load of them! And because I was impatient, I bought a job lot of vintage clear glass bottles, but actually it would’ve been fun to build up the collection over time, picking one up here and there. I thought this would be a nice quick and easy blog post just sharing my flower arrangement idea, but I ended up being pulled into the time-draining vortex of the internet discovering all sorts of things about old bottles! Did you know there are collectors’ clubs and events all over the country? If I had time for another hobby, I can see that vintage bottle collecting could become one of them!…..
