All cats, male or female, neutered/spayed or not, will mark out their territory with urine spraying.
Normally this is rare and discrete, but when this natural behaviour happens on your bed, couch, carpet or anywhere indoors other than the litter box it can be very frustrating.
Spraying or peeing outside the litter box typically happens when your cat is not fully content with life.
It can be a reaction to:
- Recent changes at home:
- New house, new furniture
- New cat or kitten, new dog
- New family member, baby
- Conflict with other cats:
- Competition for food or water
- Competition for access to litter box
Urine marking or spraying can also be caused by a medical issue.
If your cat starts peeing outside of the litter box, it's important to consult your veterinarian. Older cats especially are at risk for more medical issues and need regular vet check ups.
FELIWAY CLASSIC is clinically proven to reduce urine spraying. The "happy messages" will help your cat feel relaxed and comfortable so they don't feel the need to spray.
Using a FELIWAY CLASSIC Diffuser continuously will help stop and prevent unwanted peeing indoors. Especially if your cat seems sensitive to changes at home.
