Step 1: Neuter Neuter your cat. Most cats that have been neutered no longer spray at all. Step 2: Distinguish between spraying and urinating Distinguish between spraying and urinating. If your cat is urinating outside of their littler box, take them to a vet to rule out physical illness or problems. Tip Make sure there are plenty of litter boxes around and that they are kept clean. Cats won't want to use a dirty litter box. Step 3: Be consistent Be consistent with your cat's routine. Sometimes spraying is caused by stress in the cat, and can be set off by a change in the cat's routine. Tip Female cats do not spray as often but they can sometimes urine mark while in heat, so consider having them spayed. Step 4: Block the view of other cats Block the view of other cats since spraying is territorial. When your cat sees another cat, they may spray to mark territory. Shut curtains and move furniture away from the windows. Tip If you have multiple cats, be sure to encourage a friendly relationship between them. Step 5: Clean up Clean up any spraying very quickly and thoroughly. You want to get rid of any traces of that scent, not just cover them up. Hopefully, you can look forward to a long and healthy relationship with your cat. Did You Know? A group of adult cats can be called a clowder.
