How To Stop Urine Spraying In Your Cat (And Your Pet)

Urine Spraying is when a cat urinates vertically instead of on the ground. When a cat marks, urine is sprayed on a wall, a piece of furniture, or another surface. It is usually only a small amount of urine that sprays out instead of a steady stream. Female cats can spray urine for a variety of reasons. These reasons can be classified as either a response to an environmental stressor or a territorial behavior. Intact females may also spray urine while they are in heat to attract male cats. If your cat is upset or stressed about something in its environment, it is still capable of spraying. The best way to reduce urine spraying in a female cat who sprays is to have her spayed. If you suspect your female cat is spraying because of a litter or litter box, consider putting unscented litter in a shallow, uncovered litter box. Pheromones are scentless and help to relax stressed cats. Always consult your veterinarian for health-related questions. They have examined your pet, know the pet's health history, and can make the best recommendations. For more information on Cat Reproductive Health, visit Cat Reproduction Health. . . .
