Feliway personally doesn't work with Button but I know it works with other cats very well .. I believe it let's out calming pheromones that only cats can smell? It takes a couple of weeks to work but its worth it for the results I've seen in other cats.

Someone suggested zyklene to me if feliway doesn't work.

Forum rules are that you post piccys :) :D
