Cats are natural self-groomers. In fact, they spend up to 25% of their lives grooming themselves.

Over-grooming can have either a medical or an emotional cause. If your cat has chronic skin issues, or if you recently changed your cat’s food, this excessive grooming may be an indication of underlying medical issues. We recommend a vet check to rule out medical causes.

Over-grooming might also be caused by emotional distress. Many things can lead to your cat feeling less secure in their enviornment, such as:

  • Recent changes at home: moving, adding new furniture, remodeling, new baby in the family
  • Another pet in the home or nearby: cats don’t like sharing resources like litter box, food bowls, etc…
  • Recent changes in your routine: has your usual schedule changed leading you to be busier and less available?

Using FELIWAY® Optimum helps your cat feel secure and happy, and regaining their natural beauty and maintaining their well-being.
