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!

Looking for the perfect base – Review of Boots No 7 day cream; Rimmel mattifying primer & Bare Minerals matt powder foundation
October 12, 2017
I’m sure I could be psycho-analysed about this; but I cannot run out of something unless I’ve already bought the thing I’m going to use next – even if I know that’s not for some time! During our recent trip to America, I planned on buying a few products that I regularly use so that I have them all set to go when I ‘hit pan’ on my current ones! The first of these is the No7 Protect and Perfect Day Cream. I stood in my local Boots a couple of months ago and couldn’t bring myself to spend £25 on the next one, so I thought I’d wait until I could get it slightly cheaper across the pond. The second item was Maybelline mineral powder foundation, but as they didn’t have that any more, I was tempted into buying the Bare Minerals matte powder foundation instead. The primer was an impulse purchase as I was drawn in by the ‘mattifying’ bit on the label. Yes, there is a theme here. And yes, if a matte moisturising day cream existed, I would buy that too!….
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…..
Monthly Memoir – July
July 31, 2016
The whole of July was pretty much about our holiday in America. The few days before we left were spent frantically researching where we were going, and the few days after were spent unpacking, washing, and trying to get over jet-lag. We had three weeks away and began in New York, getting the AmTrack train down to Washington DC, picking up a hire car and driving to New Orleans via Nashville and Memphis, and then following the coast East to Orlando to spend the last couple of days in Disney’s Magic Kingdom and Universal Studios. Wow! I’m exhausted just remembering it! We covered ten states of America (New York, New Jersey, District of Columbia, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida.) Phew! ….
