Why Do Cats Spray?

All cats - male or female, neutered or not - will mark out their territory with urine spraying. Cat's spray can be a reaction to a stressful situation. During these situations, cats will spray urine to increase their self-assurance, to cope with emotional stress, or as a displacement strategy to soothe itself. While it is completely normal for cats to spray outdoors, when your cat sprays indoors it is a sign that they are feeling distressed. It has even been known for cats to spray their owner's bed or duvet.

Take this short survey to Assess your cat's well-being.

If your cat sprays indoors they also potentially need to visit the vet, as one third of all cats that spray indoors suffer from a medical issue such as cystitis. Older cats especially need regular vet check up.

Using the FELIWAY CLASSIC Spray and FELIWAY CLASSIC Diffuser is a clinically proven way to curb spraying indoors, something that will help your cat feel relaxed and reduce spotting on your walls and furniture.
