I recently heard about this and was wondering if anyone uses it. My cat is afraid of the doorbell and anyone who enters the home. She runs and hides. If the guest stay longer than a day, she will come around to eat, but is still anxious. Would this help?
We used the spray (in the car when we moved cross-country) and the diffuser. Hard to tell if it worked but we figured it couldn't hurt. Many people say it is great. Our cats are beyond nervous and there was some improvement but is that imagined by me or actual?...and since no day is the same....still, the two houses they had to transition to, I had the diffusers going.

Thanks wallycat. I'll be getting a couple of diffusers. She's also not fond of DS2 when he's here from college and hisses at him. He's leaving today until Jan. 2nd so it's the perfect time to put in place and see how she is when when he returns. It's worth a shot to see if it works.
I picked up two today at Petco as I didn't think one would be sufficient for my house. I didn't want to order them online as I wanted them today. They are not cheap - $39.99 for the diffuser kit. Fortunately I had searched online earlier and saw they were $23.99 on their website so they honored that price. Huge price difference.

I've used them on and off through the years for different cats. For the one kitty who was a total basket case, no improvement in physical terms but he might have been happier. For the moderately mellow current feline, he seemed to really chill even more. At that price point, I'll reserve use for obviously stressful situations like absence and not use every day. It certainly can't hurt them.
