Is A Feliway Diffuser Safe To Use In A Very Large Room With Parrots?

Question from Donna Stone

Firstly what is Feliway Diffuser?

According to their website.

FELIWAY CLASSIC Diffuser is a clinically proven solution to comfort cats at home and may help decrease urine spraying, scratching or hiding.

  1. Nurtures your relationship with your cat, by creating a loving environment at home. The continuous effect provides constant calming and comfort to your cat.
  2. Clinically proven, Veterinary used and recommended

Hi Donna,

​The Feliway diffuser uses a is a synthetic copy of a “safe for cats” pheromone 

BTW, should you click on the next link it will help to know that “anosmic is the loss of the ability to detect one or more smells, microsmatic is having the sense of smell feebly developed”.

​It has been known since 2010 that birds react to avian pheromones


​My guess would be that a bird inhaling pheromones from a predatory mammal could be stressful to the bird.
