Moving was made a little easier with Chewy.com #chewyinfluencer


As I mentioned last month, I was offered a few items in October through the Chewy.com Influencer program that I thought would be beneficial to have when we finally moved. I must say I do believe they both helped a lot.


After the two hour drive to the new house and realizing that Eli now has a meep meow that sounds a lot like a meepy car horn that is a few car lengths back, I carted all of the cats into the house. I originally was going to set them up upstairs but I quickly realized that was not going to work. Which is sadly why I don't have a great photo of the Feliway Comfort Zone which helps with stress behaviors by calming cats. When I moved the cats and put them in the master bathroom, I moved the plugin down there.


You can see it in the outlet by the sink. You can also see a plate of the Tiki Cat Food. I know that cats won't eat when they are stressed but since several of my cats are highly food motivated I was hoping that this would also be a "good thing" and it would help calm them.


They all came out of their carriers pretty quickly - thankfully because I didn't think six would fit in that bathroom - and were investigating. When they were finally released from the bathroom the bed was up and they were feeling better about things, but they were not ready to leave the bedroom. Jack would often go back to the bathroom where the Feliway was and sit in the carrier underneath it. It felt like he wanted to "go home".

So, I unplugged it and moved it into the kitchen where we wanted to feed them.


In fact, I liked the Feliway so much I bought a second one - along with a whole bunch of litter

  3. Feliway would never have occurred to me had we moved. But you would have told me!

  4. As you know, Feliway has helped us many times, with integrating new cats and stressful situations. Glad it helped your gang.

  6. I've been using feliway plugins for years. I don't know if they work, but I'm not willing to stop using them to find out. :) One thing, I'm not sure I would have one plugged in so close to food. The plugin does disperse the feliway in the air and it settles onto things around it. It may settle into the food. (My vet behaviorist works with the company that developed feliway and she helped develop the new multi-cat version. She explained to me how the diffusers work.)

    1. How cool that your vet worked with the company. I knew that is how the diffusers work, but since the product is designed to be used with cats, I didn't think it would be harmful if a few particles were ingested. I'll have to look into that.

  7. So wonderful to hear that your cat moving plans worked! A friend moved her five cats from Michigan to Florida, which is over 24 hours of driving. The cats came through it well, and some of the past behavioral issues between a couple of them completely stopped when they were at the new place. I never, ever want to move, but it's nice to know I can use you as an example!
