Comfort Zone® Products Worked Wonders for Her Cat; ‘Like’ them on Facebook and Help Homeless Pets!

We’re big fans of Comfort Zone® products, and all month, they’re giving $1 to the Petfinder Foundation — up to $7,000 — for every new “like” of their Facebook page! (Click here to “like” Comfort Zone® products on Facebook now!)

The products — Comfort Zone® with Feliway® for cats and Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) for dogs — combat stress-related behavior by mimicking pheromones the animals themselves secrete and which trigger a sense of security or well-being.

Toby

Best of all, Comfort Zone® products come in sprays or plug-in diffusers, so they’re super easy to use (i.e. no “pilling” an already stressed-out cat!).

Our own Bethany Meissner has seen Comfort Zone® with Feliway® work wonders on her cat Toby. “I’ve used Comfort Zone® with Feliway® to help Toby get over his fear of the carrier,” she says. “Although he doesn’t love car rides to the vet, he now can sit more quietly and doesn’t get as anxious as he used to.”

The product also helped Toby adjust after Bethany’s recent move. “I made sure to use my Comfort Zone® with Feliway® diffuser in the bathroom where Toby lived for the first day,” she says. “Although he hid at first, within a few hours he was happily exploring his new domain.”

Finally, it’s helped Bethany when she’s brought home new cats (she’s fostered seniors for D.C.’s Washington Humane Society). “Not only did Comfort Zone® with Feliway® help the fosters adjust to their new home,” she says, “it helped Toby as he navigated the new smells that came from fosters living in another room. And I always made sure to use a few extra sprays the week the fosters came out of their room and met Toby face-to-face for the first time!”

Without Comfort Zone® with Feliway®, Toby might have exhibited destructive scratching or urine-marking; Comfort Zone® with Feliway® is 95% effective at reducing both stress-related behaviors in cats. In dogs, Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) helps control stress-related barking, digging, chewing and soiling.

Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.®

The makers of Comfort Zone® products have heard from dozens of dog parents who’ve seen miraculous changes in their dogs’ behaviors. John R. writes: “My wife and I are completely amazed. Our Lab/Pit Bull mix Marley was uncontrollable, particularly when company was at the house. He would jump all over our guests and we could not calm him down.

“We heard about Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® and tried it as a last resort. Lo and behold, Marley is now a gracious host when we have friends and family to the house. I would personally recommend this product to anyone who wants to live in harmony with their dog!”

Many other pet parents have seen Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® help with their dogs’ fear of thunderstorms, destructive nighttime behavior, separation stress and general “spazzy” behavior.

So try Comfort Zone® products to help your own pets, and “like” Comfort Zone® products on Facebook today to help those still waiting for their forever homes!
