When cats are peeing outside the litter box, like on the couch or floor, they are telling us something is wrong. You can figure out what is going on below.
Here is what you can do to help keep cats from urine spraying, also called urine marking
Clean the affected area with Urine-AWAY™. This removes the odor which can continue to draw the cat back to area to mark. Urine-AWAY is an odor and stain remover.
Use FELIWAY®. FELIWAY® mimics the natural feline facial pheromone. It helps a cat feel safe and secure in its environment. It is clinically proven to decrease urine spraying in 9 out of 10 cats in 30 days.*
Litter boxes play an important part in managing this behavior. Behaviorists recommend to have one box per cat plus one and they should be spread out all over the house. Most cats are very fastidious about their toilet, aim to scoop at least once daily.
Don’t punish your cat. This includes shouting, spraying with water, or swatting your cat. Punishment increases stress and anxiety. It will make the problem worse. It may even make your cat afraid of you.
Minimize interactions with outdoor cats. Cover windows and do not place food outside for stray cats.
