    Hi!

    I am getting a kitten in 2 weeks from a breeder. She will be 12 weeks old.

    I am getting everything ready to welcome her.

    I know it can take some time for a cat to adjust to a new place but I was wondering whether a calming spray (with pheromones like Feliway or plants extracts) could help her feeling more confortable?

    I was thinking using it in the carrier box, on a blanket and at home on the cat bed, scratching posts, etc.

    What do you think? Have you used these products?

    I'd recommend Pet Remedy rather than Feliway. It depends how confident your kitten is whether or not you'll need it but a spray in the carrier may help when traveling.

    Hey CatEnthusiast,

    I have a solution that might sound a little weird but it worked for our cat.

    Ronnie was very aggressive and we could not cope with this behavior no matter how much time we spent playing with him and training him.

    But once I stumbled upon this "Cat Games" video that became our Ronnie's favourite game very fast! He jumps around my iPhone and scratches that virtual toy. This helps him to spend his energy and to fulfill his natural hunting instinct. And after playing he is adequate and not aggressive at all.

    Hope, this will help your kitten as well!

    Hi Jimmie O'Chutt,

    That is an interesting idea, thank you!
