Cat Pheromones and Calming Products

All animals have their own way of communicating, and cats are no different. Cats have a unique way of marking their surroundings, people and other pets which is completely invisible to humans. They do this with a specific cat pheromone called the Feline Facial Pheromone. This particular cat pheromone is used in some cat calming products to help reduce problem behaviour associated with stress in cats.

But, how exactly does it work?

What is the ‘Feline Facial Pheromone’?

You will have noticed your cat rubbing their chin or gently butting their heads on furniture, people or even other pets in your home. When cats do this, they release the Feline Facial Pheromone from the glands in their cheeks, chin and forehead. This particular cat pheromone is associated with happiness and reassurance, helping cats form positive connections with people and their surroundings. So when a cat does this, they are marking the area as a ‘safe space’. 

How does the ‘Feline Facial Pheromone’ help calm my cat?

Cat pheromones are also a way of passing messages and information on to other cats. They act as invisible markers that are instantly recognisable. Cats have a special structure located just above the roof of their mouth called the vomeronasal organ. This organ analyses different scents and identifies pheromones. When your cat returns to an area they've marked and identifies the Feline Facial Pheromone, they instantly feel relaxed and at ease.

Beaphar CatComfort®: The pheromone cat calming range

Feline Facial Pheromones are clinically proven to promote feelings of reassurance, and help reduce problem behaviour and stress in cats. The Beaphar CatComfort® Calming Range uses a synthetic replica of the Feline Facial Pheromone, so using the products around your home gives your cat an indication that the area is a ‘safe space’. This helps cats feel more reassured, and helps reduce problem behaviour and stress in cats.

When should I use Beaphar CatComfort® Calming Products?

Cats can be particularly sensitive to changes within their environment. Something that seems trivial or exciting to us can cause signs of stress, which they often communicate through problem behaviour. Whether your cat is exhibiting problem behaviour, or a specific stressful event is coming up, using Beaphar CatComfort® can help your cat feel more at ease.
