Certain events or situations can cause our cats to feel stressed or unsettled. Unfortunately, our cats can't tell us when something is making them feel anxious or uncomfortable. This is communicated through problem behaviour, which can be distressing for us as owners too.

Is your cat displaying any of the following signs of problem behaviour? If they are, it could be because they are a trying to tell you that something is making them feel stressed, unsettled or worried.

Signs of a stressed cat include:

  • Continuous meowing or howling
  • Fearful behaviour
  • Fighting
  • Peeing outside of their litter tray
  • Vertical scratching


Cats can become anxious in stressful situations, such as:

  • Fireworks
  • Thunderstorms
  • Vet visits
  • Multi-pet households
  • Cattery stays
  • Travelling in the car
  • Moving home
  • New baby or pet

How to calm a stressed cat with Beaphar CatComfort®

Beaphar's CatComfort range of products includes a Cat Calming Diffuser, Cat Calming Spray, and a Cat Calming Spot-On. All products from the Beaphar CatComfort® Calming range use pheromone technology to help calm a cat during stressful situations, and helps reduce problem behaviour and general feelings of anxiety.

Cat pheromones are instantly recognisable to cats of all ages, and are clinically proven to promote feelings of reassurance and help reduce unwanted behaviour and calm cats. This makes cat pheromone calming products particularly useful for cats suffering from anxiety, stress and changes in their environment.

The Feline Facial Pheromone

You may have noticed your cat rubbing their chin on objects or gently butting their heads on furniture, people or even other pets. 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’.

We use the Feline Facial Pheromone in the Beaphar CatComfort® Cat Calming Spray.

The cat calming spray is pocket-sized, so can be used on targeted areas around the home where problem behaviour occurs, or inside cat carriers for stress-free travel. 

The Cat Appeasing Pheromone

The Cat Appeasing Pheromone is naturally produced by the queen after giving birth and when she nurses her kittens. It helps them feel reassured and comforted, and is a crucial part of the socialisation and bonding process. 

Cats naturally solitary animals, and can find living in multi-cat or multi-pet households stressful. Using a calming product for cats containing the Cat Appeasing Pheromone can therefore be particularly useful to promote harmonious living, reduce conflict and aggressive behaviour, and promote bonding between pets and owners. It will also help your cat feel reassured during situations such as vet visits and cattery stays.

We use the Cat Appeasing Pheromone in the Beaphar CatComfort® Calming Spot-On. Effective for up to one week, the calming spot-on allows you to provide your cat with continuous reassurance wherever they are.

Both Phermones

By using both the Feline Facial Pheromone and the Maternal Appeasing Pheromone in Beaphar CatComfort® Excellence Calming Diffuser (and the CatComfort® Excellence 30-Day Refill), it creates a safe and secure cat calming environment in your home and reduces conflict and aggression. Simply plug in the cat pheromone diffuser to release the continuous comfort of pheromone technology to ease your cat’s stress.

The calming plug in for cats is effective for up to 30 days; simply plug in and let the pheromones reassure your cat.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are pheromones?

Pheromones are chemical compounds that are produced and emitted by the cat, naturally. These substances are immediately recognised by animals of the same species. There are different pheromones. Each triggers its own instinctive response. Pheromones are sensed by the Jacobson's Organ located above the palate close to your cat's nose.

Which product should I choose for my cat?

The choice of pheromone (and therefore which CatComfort® product) is related to the nature and cause of the undesired behaviour. Visit the overview on the frequently asked questions page for an indication of which product is suitable in tackling each behaviour. In some cases, several options or combinations may be required, in the table we show the most suitable advice.

Does CatComfort® make my cat sleepy?

No, your cat will not get sleepy from Beaphar CatComfort®. Pheromones ensure that your cat is reassured without making them sleepy or drowsy. You also don't have to worry that your cat seems relaxed but they might still suffer from stress within itself. They will be at ease with CatComfort®, inside and out.

What are the signs of a stressed cat?
