Moving to a new home
New pet or family member
Comfort Zone helps alleviate stress-related behavior, urine marking and scratching by mimicking the facial pheromone secreted by cats. Perhaps you've seen your cat rub his face on objects around your home vhe is depositing facial pheromones to mark the areas that are familiar in his territory. When your cat senses these facial pheromones in areas of your home, he does not feel the urge to urine mark or scratch.
Pheromones In Nature
Pheromones are natural chemicals emitted by animals through their skin and glands that help them to communicate with others of the same species. In mammals, the vomeronasal organ, a structure close to the nasal passage, receives these pheromone signals. When animals receive pheromone signals, there is an involuntary behavioral effect on those animals. There are many different types of pheromones and different classes have different effects. For instance, some serve social functions among animals, while others serve sexual functions among animals.
Feline Facial Pheromones
Pheromones are natural chemicals secreted by animals to communicate with others of the same species. Comfort Zone with Feliway mimics the feline facial pheromone that helps a cat feel at home in his environment. When your cat rubs his face on an object, or even you, he is releasing the feline facial pheromone that marks the area as familiar and safe. When he senses this facial pheromone through the nasal passage, he recognizes it as familiar and does not feel the urge to urine mark or scratch.
Reasons Cats Urine Mark
Cats are solitary, territorial animals and often use marking behaviors as a means of defining their territories. Pheromones released from several areas of their bodies serve as a chemical message to other cats. Although urine marking may be embarrassing to cat owners, this behavior is perfectly natural in cats. Your cat may urine mark for the following reasons:
To initiate sexual activity
Strange cats visiting the cat's territory
New pet or family member in the home
Problems with a member of the household
Problems with another pet in the home
Moving or remodeling the home
Visitors to the home
In contrast, ordinary urination is on horizontal surfaces in larger puddles. Your cat may urinate in the house for several reasons, such as medical problems, old age, a full litter box, or your cat's objection to the location of the litter box. If you are not sure whether you have a marking problem or a medical problem, consult your veterinarian before using any product.

Urinary tract infection or crystalluria
Inadequate cleaning of the litter box
Unacceptable type of litter or litter box
