Feliway Farnam's Comfort Zone with Feliway is a Feline Behavior Modification Spray (or Plug-in) that mimics the comforting facial pheromone found in cats.

Can Feliway help bring home a missing animal? If you can do anything to bring your pet's fright down just a notch, it may be enough for kitty to come home on its own, allow kitty to show itself, or enter a trap.

• Spray around your house and a door or window that your kitty may re-enter.
• If your cat has been spotted in another location, try spraying there. If you are trapping, spray the trap itself and the surrounding area.
• If you have an electrical socket outside your home, use the plug-in version so you won't have to respray every day.
Available at large pet retailers like Petco and Petsmart as well as online at the Pet Guys among others. There is also Comfort Zone for Dogs.
