Cats and spraying...

We will be moving a kitten inside next month. In the past we've had a lot of problems with cats spraying my husband's stuff. What can I do to prevent this from happening with this cat?

  • Get him fixed!!!! Most spraying is because of territorial issues... Next make sure he's got easy access to a litterbox and keep it clean. Cats get particular about that stuff. And if it does spray at all, which it shouldn't, get a good enzyme cleaner and go to town.
    Good luck!

  • Get the kitten neutered just before it turns 6 months. That's when all the icky stuff starts. I've never had an issue with my cats. Except being scared to death by something jumping out of the dark in the middle of the night and clinging on my leg. :)

  • usually if you spay/nueter them when they are a kitten they do not tend to spray.

  • Get the cat FIXED!!! And anything that has been sprayed in the past - spray it with a vinegar water solution.
