Cat spraying is annoying enough as it is, but when you can’t find the source of the smell — that’s when things get extremely aggravating.
In this post, I’ll try to give you my best tips on how to find out where a cat has sprayed.
It’s nothing groundbreaking, really. I spend a lot of time on my knees sniffing things, too 🙂
I still remember the first time I was feeling the smell of cat urine after having cleaned out the litter box. I was so disappointed when I realized my cat had started to spray around the house (outside the litter box).
The very first thing I learned when looking for cat spray stains in my house was that cats can spray in the most random and unlikely places. Sometimes all you have to do is sniff it out and find the room where the smell is coming from. But it’s not always that easy. Follow the 3 tips below to try to come to terms with where your cat has sprayed. These are really the only 3 tips you’ll ever need.
- Sniff It Out: I think this one is self-explanatory. Get on your knees and start sniffing. Try to find the room where the accident happened and look for the most likely spots. But I bet you’ve already tried that once or twice.
- Look for Stains: this is easier if your furniture and carpeting are made out of lighter materials where stains can easier be seen. My best tip is to look for stains under & behind furniture, and also on walls which used to be my cat’s favorite spot to mark when I still had big problems.
- Use a UV light: this is the single most effective thing you can do in order to make your search for cat spraying stains a lot more effective.
Once you find out where your cat has been spraying — neutralize the urine with an enzyme cleaner as fast as you possibly can! Other than that, the very best thing you can do for your own mental sanity is to try to permanently stop your cat from spraying moving forward.
This is easier said than done, which is the sole reason I’ve had to start this blog in the first place.
If you’re looking for a product to help you get rid of your cat spraying problem in as little as 30 days — consider getting a copy of Cat Spray Stop. Created by Susan Westinghouse, a vet and cat specialist, Cat Spray Stop is an all-encompassing guide designed to help you stop cat spraying in your home in as little as 14 days using a unique method called the TTS method.
I have tried Cat Spray Stop with great results, and have also published a review of it over here.
It’s the best cat spraying solution I’ve tried thus far simply because it gets your cat to stop spraying without the use of any dangerous chemicals and it doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg. Good luck!
