New Feliscratch and Kit4Cat Products For Cats

To many of us, owning a cat is like having another member of the family. They bring us companionship, keep us fascinated, and even help us cope with daily life. Like any pet, cats can sometimes be challenging but we love them anyway. Here at VetRxDirect, we offer a variety of healthcare solutions for cats, from prescriptions to wellness. Feliscratch and Kit4Cat are new noteworthy products that may make homelife and “catlife” smoother.


Feliscratch at VetRxDirect

Scratching is a natural behavior for cats, but it can sometimes be destructive especially on household furniture.  Feliscratch is a liquid pheromone that mimics the natural pheromones and marks left by cats while scratching. When applied to a scratching post it encourages cats to scratch there, instead of on valuable items. Feliscratch also contains catnip to help redirect the scratching where you want and correct inappropriate behavior. Ideal for single or multi-cat households.


Urine testing is an important part of maintaining your cat’s health. It is used to help diagnose illness and diseases including diabetes and kidney disorders. Urinary tract infections and disorders can also be diagnosed by testing urine pH and for stone and crystals. Veterinarians often ask cat owners for urine samples and it can be a difficult task. Some cats refuse to use non-absorbent litter because of the texture.

Kit4cat at VetRxDirect

Kit4Cat is a urine sample collection kit that just may help these issues. It contains a non-absorbent sand that repels liquid and keeps it on top, making it easy for you to collect a clean urine sample without any mess. The sand has a liquid repellent coating that is natural and non-toxic. It has the same texture, smell, and feel of regular sand making it accepted by cats even finicky ones. Simply place the sand in a clean container, give your cat some privacy, then use the included pipettes and vials to collect the urine from the top of the sand. Kit4Cat comes with sets of sand, pipettes, and vials for collection.
