You’re a proud cat owner, and like any cat owner you love your cat beyond words. Because let’s face it, what’s not to love?
- Their playfulness? Irresistible.
- Their joyfulness? Lovely.
- The purring? Simply adorable.
But all that can change in the blink of an eye…when the presence of an unpleasantly familiar smell takes over your home and outside: cat urine.
Problem: Why My Cat is Spraying All Around the House & Outside
A cat is a feline, and by definition, felines enjoy the feeling of independence.
Unfortunately, the strongest declaration of said independence is spraying – (even though it’s not the only one).
For this reason, stopping a sprayer is among the most common (and challenging) things cat owners face.
You know it. But your cat doesn’t. And thus your door, curtains, couches, carpets and counters receive a never-ending barrage of cat pee.
What’s worse, cleaning the area using conventional means won’t help. At all.
Why? Because cat urine contains a combination of chemical compounds that cannot be cleaned using simple washing techniques.
Solution: How to Stop Cats Spraying & Leaking Easily
To break this vicious cycle you need to apply some simple cat psychology.
Yes, you read that right.
Cleaning the affected area or taking the cat outside won’t make her understand that spraying inside the house is bad and needs to stop.
Cats can hear us, but they can’t understand what we’re telling them.
To really stop your cat from spraying you need to peacefully use her own senses against her/him. That’s the only way she’ll understand, because in animals, the body always listens to what the brain is saying.
Luckily, the solution exists. And it works in a surprisingly fast.
If you’re thinking like a feline, you understand the power of changing a cat’s association with a particular location or behavior. And one of the most efficient associations is with delicious food. This usually works, but there are exceptions.
When your cat eats, “feel good” brain chemicals are flowing inside your furry friend’s brain. And because cleanliness stands right beside “catliness”, you can stop your cat from spraying by placing the food where the “smelly action” usually happens. The reason behind this is simple: cats don’t like to relieve themselves where they eat.
By placing food in that area, not only your cat will stop spraying it, but he will also regard it as a happy eating spot.
To clean the area, just use an enzyme-based cleaner. This will help break down the urine’s chemical compounds and prevent your cat from starting another spraying spree in the future (especially if you forget to place the food bowl in the previously affected area).
