Pheromones

15/12/11

Ever wondered why your cat rubs his head against objects/people? Scratches some places but not others? Urine sprays in certain places? Cats ‘see’ their world as a myriad of scent marks. They use them to define territory, mark objects/places they like, and remind themselves where bad things happen, amongst other things. These scent marks contain pheromones, which is why some companies have produced products that contain synthetic pheromones as tools to modify an animals behaviour.

Do you know of any problems associated with using these products? Answers to come!
