My Vet’s Suggestion on How to Stop a Cat from Spraying

You may love your cat. But, your cat may be rude to you. It can annoy you by spraying in small amounts at places where you don’t want it to spray. Cleaning those urine stains is a real pain. I have an expensive carpet covering the floor in my bedroom. But, the cat doesn’t fail to spray on the carpet whenever it gains entry into my bedroom.

When I had a chat with my vet on how to stop a cat from spraying, I told him that there must be some problem with the litter box. But my vet did not agree with me. He told me that the cat is doing it purposely. He then told me that it is not a good idea to rely just on the litter box to stop a cat from spraying. He suggested that I need to use multiple methods on how to stop a cat from spraying in conjunction. It is not smart to use just one method and hope for it to work. Cats are smart animals. It is not always easy to fool them with a litter box. He told me that I should use Feliway spray along with litter box. Teaching the cat to spray outdoors may also work.
