Before I owned my first cat, I thought cat spraying and peeing were the same thing. Turns out — they’re not!
Cat peeing is something that won’t ruin your day. Cat spraying (and marking) on the other hand most definitely will. So, how do you tell the difference and what can you do?
The easiest way to determine whether or not your cat is spraying or urinating is to take a look at how they do it.
Cats urinate by squatting onto a horizontal surface; spraying occurs standing up. The cat makes a treading motion with her back feet and quivers her tail, leaving her scent mark on a vertical surface.
If you’re having problems with cat spraying (or inappropriate urination), which can be extremely aggravating, I thought I’d list 3 of my standard tips on how to stop it as easily as possible.
- Neuter your cat:
If your cat has started urinating outside its litter box, this blog is filled to the brim with lots of different tips you could try to stop cat spraying once and for all. The best cat spraying solution I recommend is named 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 7 days using a unique method called the TTS method.
I have tried Cat Spray Stop with great results, and also published a review of it over here. Good luck!
