8 razlogov, zakaj mačka prši in kaj storiti glede tega

Eden najbolj frustrirajočih vidikov lastništva mačk je lahko, ko naš ljubljeni hišni ljubljenček spremeni našo hišo v svojo osebno posodico. Tako kot imamo radi svoje mačke, imeti hišo, ki zadiši po mačjem urinu, nikoli ni dobro. Kakšni so razlogi, zakaj mačke pršijo in kaj lahko storite glede tega? Pa ugotovimo.

8 razlogov, zakaj mačke pršijo

  1. Okužbe sečil
  2. Bad Litterbox Training
  3. Spolna zrelost ali nezrelost
  4. Teritorialnost
  5. Neurejene navade in slaba ozaveščenost
  6. Izbirčnost
  7. Glavne spremembe
  8. Senilnost

Mačke so samo udomačene

Za razliko od psov so mačke le pol udomačene vrste in njihovo vedenje je včasih lahko zapleteno in povsem zmedeno. vendar to ne pomeni, da ni upanja. Spodaj bom razložil vse pogoste razloge, zakaj mačke škropijo in kaj je mogoče storiti glede tega. Dala bom tudi rešitve, ki ne bodo razbile banke, saj vsi vemo, da je lastništvo hišnih ljubljenčkov drago. Tudi če uporabite poceni popravek, mačke tega ne bodo opazile ali skrbele - preveč so zasedene z igranjem v škatli, v katero je prišlo mačje drevo.

1. Okužbe sečil

Prva stvar, ki jo želite storiti, je, da poskrbite, da vaša mačka ne škropi zaradi zdravstvenega stanja. Najpogostejši zdravstveni razlog, da bi mačka nenadoma začela pišati na nenavadnih mestih, bi bila okužba sečil. UTI so najpogostejši pri starejših moških mačkah, pojavljajo pa se pri moških in ženskah, neodvisno od reproduktivnega statusa; pojavljajo se tudi pri mačkah katere koli starosti.

Znaki, ki jih ima vaša mačka lahko UTI

  • Če je vaša mačka že leta imela odlične manire v kopalnici in v okolju ni prišlo do sprememb, boste morda želeli mačko odpeljati k veterinarju na diagnozo.
  • Mačke z okužbami sečil pogosto radi lulajo po gladkih, hladnih površinah. To je lahko vaša kad, umivalnik, kuhinjski pult ali kjer koli drugje, ki je gladka in hladna.
  • Če se zdi, da se vaša mačka med piskanjem trudi, joka, ali je vročina, je treba takoj poiskati veterinarja. UTI lahko mačko ubije, če traja predolgo.

Upoštevajte, da jih mačke, ki dobijo UTI, pogosto dobijo znova in znova. Morda bo potrebna sprememba prehrane, da se preprečijo prihodnje težave, zato bo za spremljanje mačke v prihodnosti potreben močan pogled.

2. Trening slabega smetišča

Večina mačk ima radi čisto okolje, del tega pa ima določeno površino - steklenico, ki jo lahko uporabite kot kahlico. Glede na to so mačke zelo individualistična bitja in nekatere od njih tega sporočila nikoli ne dobijo. Precej pogosta težava rešenih divjadi je, da je ideja o smetnjaku nekoliko zmedena. Še huje pa je, da lahko te iste mačke svoje mladičke naučijo enakih manir.

Pomen usposabljanja za Litterbox

Preventiva je pravzaprav veliko lažja kot prekvalifikacija. Če slučajno gojite leglo mladičkov, jih prosimo, da jih hranite v ustreznem prostoru z mamo, dokler se ne odstavijo. To bo omogočilo le dovolj prostora za spanje, prehranjevanje in uporabo smetišča in upajmo, da se bodo naučili, čemu je smetišče namenjeno. (To ne pomeni, da jih občasno ne morete spustiti na nadzorovano vadbo!)

3. Spolna zrelost ali nezrelost

Skoraj vse nespremenjene moške mačke bodo začele pršiti, ko bodo odrasle. Niso krivi oni - to je neločljivo povezano z njihovo biologijo in delajo samo to, kar mačke počnejo že od zore mačka. Samci se bodo razpršili, da bodo pustili dišečo vizitko, če pride samica v vročini na območje. (To je kot mačja različica nastavitve profila za zmenke! Ni važno, če v vašem domu ni samic - tom mora živeti v upanju!)

Pomen sterilizacije in kastracije

Spet je preventiva odgovor. Če posvojite moškega mačka, ki ga ne nameravate vzrejati, ga kastrirajte, preden dopolni eno leto (šest mesecev bi bilo še boljše!).

Včasih bodo nespremenjene ženske mačke imele enako vedenje, zato se prepričajte, da je tudi ona sterilizirana. Če se znajdete s staro mačko, ki je bila kastrirana prepozno, lahko vseeno poskusite zajeziti vedenje tako, da izperete vsa označena območja res no. Če vonja ni več, ga ne bi smeli opomniti. Če je vonj še vedno prisoten, ne bo pomembno, ali je mačka spremenjena ali nedotaknjena, verjetno bodo še naprej škropili sproti.

Nasveti za odvračanje škropljenja

Upoštevajte, da mačke vonj dejansko zaznajo bolje kot psi, zato bo morda treba odstraniti preprogo in uporabiti precej zajetna čistila. V tem času boste morda imeli srečo s pršenjem kisa na in v okolici. Večina mačk resnično ne mara vonja kisa in se morda trudi, da bi se temu izognila.

4. Teritorialnost

Tako kot tomcatke v prejšnjem odstavku tudi večina mačk označi nekaj, kar zahteva njihovo ozemlje. Ni nujno, da gre za zakonca, lahko je samo velik napis, ki glasi: "Zasebna lastnina, pojdi ven!" To je najpogosteje težava, ko se mora mačka, ki jo že vrsto let redi sama, nenadoma spoprijeti s prihodom nove mačke ali mucka. Samo za trenutek pomislite na to: Kako bi se počutili, če bi dobro življenje živeli popolnoma sami, le da bi nekoč prišli domov k neznancu, ki živi v vaši hiši in se ga ne bi mogli znebiti?

Obravnavanje nasilne mačke

Drug pogost scenarij je dom z več mačkami in še en maček, ki je, če rečem rahlo, malce nasilnik. Takrat ni vseeno, ali so navajeni živeti v skupinskem domu, novinec je samo nadležen in sovražen in kdo si to želi? V teh situacijah dejansko predlagam, da najdete nasilnika bolj primeren dom - ni vredno stresa za vaše starejše prebivalce.

Poskusite s počasnim uvodom

To ne pomeni, da novih mačk nikoli ne bi smeli vnašati v gospodinjstvo, ampak samo reči, da če boste to storili, upoštevajte občutke mačk in jih predstavite čim počasneje:

  1. Začnite z novo mačko v kletki (dostopna rezidenčni mački ali mačkam).
  2. Pazi na njihovo vedenje. Sikajo? Pljuvanje? Puhanje las?
  3. Pustite novo mačko v kletki, dokler rezidenčne mačke ne prenehajo z zgoraj omenjenim vedenjem.
  4. Ko se vsem zdi udobno, spustite novo mačko iz kletke v samo eno sobo vaše hiše.
  5. Opazujte reakcije in počasi nadaljujte od tam.

Poskusite uporabiti Feliway za zmanjšanje neželenega vedenja

Če ste v položaju, ko je preventiva prepozna, lahko še vedno nekaj storite: besno očistite škropljena mesta in investirajte v pločevinko Feliwaya. Feliway je sintetični vonj, ki je za človeka popolnoma brez vonja. Posnema vonj mačjih obraznih feromonov. Mačke imajo za ušesi dišeče žleze in ko se o stvari drgnejo, jih označijo kot svoje ozemlje. Feliway je na voljo v spreju, ki ga lahko ročno nanesete na problematična mesta ali pa ga uporabite v difuzorju, ki ga priklopite na steno.

Prenesite vonj s krpo

Če res nimate denarja ali imate raje bolj naraven način, lahko vonj svoje mačke zberete sami na vlažni krpi, tako da ga pobožate za ušesi, nato pa ta vonj z brisačo prenesete na problematična področja vaše hiše. To zahteva čas in veliko ponovitev; vsaj vsaj enkrat na dan (čim več, tem bolje).

5. Neurejene navade in slaba ozaveščenost

Tako kot pri vseh vrstah so tudi nekatere mačke lahko navidezni geniji, druge pa lahko na oddelku za možgane pustijo veliko želenega. Nekoč sem imel mačko, ki je bila tako neinteligentna, ves dan bi te samo gledala s praznim izrazom in skoraj slišal si statiko, ki teče skozi prostor med njenimi ušesi. Vsakič, ko je uporabila smetnjak, se je dobesedno vrnila nazaj, dokler njen zadnji del ni visel čez rob. Vsakič bi pustila svežo trto na tleh tik pred smetiščem in nato praskala in tapala po pesku, da bi zakrila zaklad, ki ni nikoli prišel v škatlo.

Pridobite steklenico za stene

Bodite potrpežljivi s temi neurejenimi bitji. to ni dejanje zlobe, v resnici samo operirajo avtopilot. Ugotovil sem, da je najboljši način za reševanje tega vprašanja ta, da naredim steno za stene, da moja mačka ne bi mogla obesiti zadka čez rob. Spodnja fotografija prikazuje lep primer DIY iz toteta.

6. Izbirčnost

Bi mi verjeli, če bi rekel, da se mačke lahko obnašajo podobno kot obsesivno-kompulzivna motnja (vsaj v smislu hiperčistoče)? Nekatere mačke morajo imeti čisto posteljo, pika. In če ne bodo dobili tistega, kar si želijo, bodo vaš življenjski prostor samo spremenili v smetišče, dokler ne boste dobili namiga. Te mačke običajno škatlo očistijo vsaj enkrat na dan, če ne po vsaki uporabi. Tako izbirčni so, kolikor pridejo in vas bodo ovili okoli njihovih majhnih tačk! Na našo srečo obstajajo samočistilni smeti in trening na stranišču!

7. Večje spremembe

Mačke se lahko zelo postavijo na svoje in spremembe v okolju so zanje lahko zelo stresne. Stvari, kot so nov pes, nov otrok, nenadni glasni zvoki ali selitev na novo lokacijo, jih lahko zelo vznemirjajo in začnejo označevati kot način, kako se potolažiti in potrditi, da imajo ozemlje.

Če je le mogoče, je najboljša preventiva. Ko mačko pripeljete v nov dom, poskusite z vtičnimi difuzorji Feliway olajšati prehod (omenjeno zgoraj). Prav tako sem velik oboževalec navajanja mačke na pesjak ali kletko - kamor se zdi varno, če gre za spremembe v okolju. Ta vrsta namestitve (z udobno posteljo, hrano in igračami) jih lahko ohrani varne in srečne ter koristi v naslednjih scenarijih:

  • kadar zunaj potekajo ognjemeti ali veselice;
  • ko je gostov konec (da jim preprečijo, da bi tekali naokrog ali bežali);
  • ko se v gospodinjstvo uvaja nov pes ali dojenček; in
  • ko se prilagajajo na novo lokacijo.

Tu je udobje ključnega pomena in če je vaša mačka sproščena, bo veliko manj verjetno, da bo škropila.

8. Senilnost

Del tega, da so ljudje mačkam tako všeč, je, da so nam v marsičem zelo podobni. Na žalost to ne šteje le za njihovo inteligenco in igrive manire, temveč tudi za staranje. Včasih se kljub našim najboljšim prizadevanjem začne senilnost in naši geriatrični ljubljenčki izgubijo pot. Žalosten je spust, toda če imate mačko, ki prihaja tja v letih, ki nenadoma deluje nenavadno, je verjetno razlog za to senilnost. To še posebej velja, če ga spremljajo tudi drugi znaki senilnosti, kot je tavanje po hiši ob vseh urah, ki jokajo iz nič ali se samo obnašajo nenavadno.

Kako se boriti proti staranju

Moja prva mačka je dočakala štirinajst let in zadnje leto svojega življenja je očitno šla iz sebe. Nehala se je pokakati v škatli in brez razloga začela uporabljati sredino tal za kahlico. Težka in srhljiva situacija je, ker tega starostnega napredovanja ni mogoče obrniti.

Če ste v tej situaciji, vam ne morem veliko pomagati, toda če imate slučajno mlajše mačke, vedite, da ima ohranjanje mačjega duha in telesa v mlajših letih odlične preventivne lastnosti pri staranju. Starejša mačka, ki se še vedno igra z igračami in ni debela, je veliko manj verjetno, da bo trpela zaradi starostnih težav. Poleg tega mora biti igranje z vašo mačko, skrivanje njene hrane v kroglice za priboljške in bolj interakcija z njimi eno najsrečnejših rešitev za katero koli vprašanje, o katerem smo danes razpravljali!

Moji krzneni dojenčki

Ginchy je nekoliko izbirčen. Tukaj objema dojenčka (za katerega je bila popolnoma prepričana, da je osirotel mucek!).

Upoštevajte številne vzroke in raziščite

Pršenje je velik problem, vendar se je mogoče boriti z znanjem. Danes smo izvedeli, da so nespremenjeni odrasli moški mačke daleč najbolj krivi v kateri koli kategoriji. To je treba upoštevati pri posvojitvi mačke, vendar morate upoštevati tudi pasmo mačk.

Nekatere pasme imajo precej slab sloves pri označevanju, zlasti hibridne pasme, kot so bengalke in savane. Te pasme imajo v nedavnih družinskih drevesih divje mačke, zaradi česar je to zelo nedomastno vedenje še bolj verjetno. Kljub temu hibridi niso edine pasme, ki naj bi bile problematične. Tudi žalostno lepa in zelo udomačena egipčanka Mau si včasih privošči sloves zaradi tega neskladnega vedenja in niso edina! Torej, raziščite in na koncu upamo, da boste skupaj s svojo mačko preživeli srečno življenje.

Lisa 4. marca 2020:

Moje 4-letne mačke, tako samčki kot samice, so začele pršiti po moji hiši. Zdaj jih moram hraniti v rezervni sobi, kjer ne pršijo. V trenutku, ko jih izpustim, poškropijo. Poskusil sem vse, moja hiša je brezmadežna, vendar želijo pršiti. Prosim, pomagajte, ne morem jih izpustiti in bom moral domov ali tvegati vse, kar imam, da bom pokrit s pišem.

Chris 14. januarja 2020:

Moja 16 let stara kastrirana mačka je pred kratkim prvič začela pršiti. Prejšnji teden je imel opravljeno zelo obsežno komisijo in ni bilo težav s krvjo ali urinom. Začelo se je po igranju z njegovo najljubšo igračo iz perja, ki jo je začel igrati med igranjem. Med tem je stal v eni od zabojnikov in poškropil steno zadaj. Vem, da je šlo za dejansko škropljenje zaradi tresenja repa. Ima ledvično bolezen v začetni fazi, vendar po mnogih letih na robu ne kaže simptomov. Je dobro in je energičen. Kaj se lahko tukaj dogaja?

Pomagajte mojemu moškemu, da se še naprej lula na blazino mojega fanta in samo na njegovi strani postelje veste, zakaj in kaj lahko storim, da to ustavim

Amber 13. septembra 2019:

Moj 3-letni kastrirani moški je ravno začel pršiti na mojo posteljo. Odšli smo za 3 dni in prišla je teta hranit njega in njegovo leglo. Odkar se je vrnil, je bil teritorijalen in agresiven, danes pa mi je poškropil odejo.

Anne 28. aprila 2019:

Pomoč. Moja mačka je bila sterilizirana, toda zdi se, da se vse mačke od okoli zberejo okoli mojega doma in sledijo moji mački, ko gre ven, stvar je v tem, da na dnu stopnic ob vhodnih vratih dobim vonj mačje mačke , ne vem, ali moja mačka ali drugi škropijo, jo včasih zavoham pred mojimi vrati. Kakršni koli predlogi, kako se znebiti vonja, ni zelo močan, če je to moja mačka, ali kdo ve, zakaj bi to storila. Hvala vnaprej

Tanya 19. novembra 2018:

Moja mačka je stara približno 8 let. Pred dvema letoma smo ga rešili pred vrati in nenadoma je začel škropiti po mojih otrocih in meni samem. Kaj se dogaja? Zdaj se ga moj mož želi znebiti.

lori st.james 27. oktobra 2018:

Moja mačka je stara skoraj 3 ali 4 leta, kastriran je bil verjetno prezgodaj, da bi bil iskren, a takoj, ko bi lahko bil njegov dom v njihovem življenju, ga še nikoli ni tako zgodaj razpršil, da se ni nikoli naučil, kako pršiti, ampak moja dilema je, da je zdaj pred približno 4 meseci od nikoder moja mačka kako brizgala, kdaj se je celo življenje zrcalila, kako naj to popravim in še bolj pristavim, kaj bi lahko bil vzrok za to, ali ima kdo odgovore

April Jolley 2. oktobra 2018:

Moja starejša mačka prši po moji postelji. To je počel že večkrat, odkar je moja hči domov pripeljala psa. Kaj lahko naredim??

Živjo DPF! Hvala, da ste se ustavili in komentirali! Pravzaprav so mačke Tom samo super teritorialne. Vse, kar lahko, poškropijo, kadar koli lahko, in ko je nekaj označeno, se bodo vrnili, da to pripomnijo. Mislim, da dejstvo, da gre za človeško kopalnico ali da je imela umazana ženska higienska sredstva, nima veliko opraviti z njo, čeprav bo od tu naprej verjetno težava, še posebej, če bodo to prišli tudi drugi tomovi!

DPF 16. maja 2018:

Delamo v otroškem centru, opazili smo, da zunanja mačka, ki ni naša, škropi naša zunanja vrata kopalnice ... nekajkrat se je zgodilo in smo zmedeni. ta kopalnica je tudi kopalnica našega osebja in kmalu po škropljenju sem opazila, da obstajajo Fem. Higiena (uporabljena in zavita) v odprto smeti v tisti sobi, ki ni bila odnesena v mestni zabojnik. je verjetno, da je ta vonj sprožil neznanega Toma, da je razpršil ta vrata. na dnu vrat je rahlo odprtina ....

Shirley Crawford 22. marca 2018:

Pomoč! Je kdo imel mačji sprej na sebi ?? Imam dva, ki sta to storila v zadnjih 2 tednih. Oba sta kastrirana. Vetova je dejala, da še nikoli ni slišala, da bi mačke to delale ljudem.

Rachel 1. avgusta 2017:

Na žalost je bil srce družine. Moji dve preostali deklici se spopadata .... Lahko rečem, da sta se izgubili. Muffin (moja mucka, ki je minila) je bil skrbnik, tolažnik, ljubimec itd. Kopal je vse v hiši v rednih časovnih presledkih, sedel je in čakal, da so vsi ostali pojedli, preden je jedel. Samo pomislite na ljubečo, negovalno mamo in imeli bi res dobro predstavo o Muffinu. Deklica, ki je začela škropljenje, se je neprestano 'pogovarjala' in zelo se trudim posnemati kopeli, ki jih je dobila poleg tega, kar že počnem normalno. Hvala za vaše sožalje.

Theophanes Avery (avtor) iz Nove Anglije 31. julija 2017:

Vsaka gospodinjska vznemirjenost (stres) lahko povzroči, da mačka začne pršiti. Smrt druge mačke, s katero so povezani, lahko zagotovo spada pod to kategorijo in tudi nekaj drugih. Niste omenili, ali je bila prenesena mucka na vrhu hišne hierarhije ali ne ... če je bil, potem je to dodatna razburjenost, saj bodo med tistimi, ki ostanejo, morda treba sporeti o novih ozemljih. Na žalost ne morem zagotoviti preveč pomoči - pravzaprav ne morem reči, naj nihče ne umre, to preprosto ne deluje ... lahko pa rečem, da drugim mačkam ponudite dodatna skrivališča, morda zabojnike in druga udobja bodo morda pomagala, da bo ta prehod nekoliko bolj gladek. Feliway lahko pomaga tudi pri ozemeljskih sporih. Veliko sreče, žal mi ni bilo več pomoči in moje sožalje za vašo izgubo. :(

Rachel 30. julija 2017:

Večino tega sem vedel, ko sem imel v življenju veliko in veliko mačk. Upal sem, da bom videl nekaj v zvezi z žalovanjem, vendar nič posebej omenjenega.

Moj najstarejši moški maček je pravkar umrl pred nekaj dnevi. Nocoj me je moja najmlajša samica poškropila po nogi. Moja najstarejša mačka je bila zelo povezana z vsemi drugimi mačkami. Bil je skrbnik vseh. Šel je skozi hišo, kopal je vse tri mačke, mojega psa in mene. Vedno je bil v načinu "oče". Ko ga ni več, je opustošil celo hišo.

Predvidevam, da je moja najmlajša punčka tako uničena, da me je začela škropiti. Kaj idej?

Theophanes Avery (avtor) iz Nove Anglije 21. aprila 2017:

Tammy: Dobro škropljenje na bleščečih hladnih površinah lahko pomeni, da ima okužbo sečil ... to je zelo pogosto pri moških mačkah in zagotovo bi vsaj to možnost preverili. Po drugi strani je žvečenje krzna znak, da je verjetno zaradi česa živčen. Ste gospodinjstvu predstavili novo mačko, hišnega ljubljenčka, otroka ali človeka? To so najpogostejši razlogi, da je mačka vznemirjena ... druge stvari so lahko glasni zvoki ali druge spremembe v okolju. Poskrbite, da se bo imel v njem prijetnega mladiča, če se bo moral - to je lahko samo škatla z odejo v mirnem kraju hiše. Vso srečo!

Češnja: Žal mi je, da mačke, ki so še nedotaknjene, kar naprej škropijo ... Tam res ne morete storiti ničesar, razen da ga kastrirate ali zadržite zunaj.

Tammy 21. aprila 2017:

Imam moškega mačka, starega približno 4 do 5 let. Pred kratkim je začel žvečiti lastno krzno in zdaj škropi mojo hišo. Popravljen je bil od svojega petega meseca starosti. Toda tisto, kar šprica, je res čudno, so kraji, ki jih škropi. Škropil je mojo peč, mojo posodo za kavo in opekač kruha, zdaj pa tonite. Opazil sem, da je poškropil moj akvarij, ja pa moj akvarij. Obupno potrebujem nekaj informacij. Nočem se ga znebiti, ker ga imam zelo rada. Zlomi mi srce. Ali mi lahko prosim pomagate ugotoviti, ali gre za zdravstvene težave ali samo za označevanje njegovega ozemlja. In če ste kdo to kdaj doživeli. Hvala vam

Imam šest mačk 3 samčke 3 samice, vse določene 1 je stara 16 let, ostale pa vse

7 let in za vsakogar v navadi v preteklosti 6-7 let. Moja ingverjeva mačka je nenadoma začela škropiti vedno na istih mestih, zato jo je enostavno opaziti in razumem, da je beli kis najboljši za zaustavitev vonjav in čiščenje. Prav tako ni tako prijazen do drugih mačk in je precej nasilnik in pridobivalec pozornosti, vedno je okrog mene (torej sem alfa), ali je to lahko ljubosumje in kako ga lahko pozdravim, če se ga ne bom znebil? Hranim 4 ponve za vsa čista jutranja poldneva in zvečer. V čem je težava ingverja?

Cherry Raymonds 28. septembra 2016:

Naš maček Puffy je s pršenjem povsod obnorel vso družino.

Kupili smo razpršila za odvajanje vonja in posebna čistila, ki jih je ignoriral in na novo označil po vsej hiši ... nekaj nasvetov? (Svojo mačko zavrnem.)

Hvala vam.

Andrea 17. avgusta 2016:

Mačke imam že od 6. tedna starosti. Sprejel sem jih in so bili "popravljeni" že, ko sem jih dobil. Vse svoje življenje (zdaj je že 5 let) se je moj moški obnašal kot da škropi, a nič ni izšlo ... do včeraj! Bil je presenečen kot jaz in takoj poskušal to prikriti. Ali obstaja način, da se ustavi?

ozzy 1. aprila 2015:

zato odpeljem svojega moškega mačka k veterinarju, da ga popravi, dal sem ga oblikovati 11 tednov, veterinarji pa jih ne popravijo do 6 mesecev, vendar veterinarji pravijo, da je to že storil, vendar je še vedno prestrašen in se obnaša, kot da ni zakaj

Susan Guinn s Floride 3. februarja 2015:

Kristen Howe iz severovzhodnega Ohaja 22. januarja 2015:

To je čudovito vozlišče. S tem vprašanjem se ukvarjam že skoraj leto dni. Moji dve odrasli moški mački sta to storili lansko poletje, preden sem se nameraval preseliti iz svojega stanovanja. (Zdaj moram plačati dolg za račun za preprogo.) Zdaj to počnejo še enkrat, vendar ne toliko, saj sem preselil škatlo za steljo in območje preproge obdal z blazinicami za tekače preprog in psičkov ustavil, četudi sem tla posesal s sodo bikarbono, poškropil z razpršilom Gone in ga nekajkrat očistil s paro. Verjamem, da imajo UTI. Toda ali imate kakšno idejo za cenovno ugodno oskrbo veterinarja?

Ampak ja, so izredno mišičaste mačke, zlasti Morali bi biti težki kot opeka, to je del njihove divje dediščine (križanje z azijskimi mačkami Leopard.) Ker azijske mačke Leopard jedo veliko rib v svoji prehrani, so svojo ljubezen do vode prenesle na bengalsko pasmo, ki pogosto pljuskajo, jahajo in celo plavajo, če jim dovolite. Zgornji povezani članek vam pokaže, kako so se nekateri negotovi tisti, za katere sem dobil priložnost skrbeti, naučili, kako splakovati stranišča in izprazniti razpršilnike vode. VZPIS! So najbolj inteligentna pasma Naletel sem na celo preseganje siamskih in ponovno udomačenih divjadi.

Maine Coons, ki sem celo življenje živel v Novi Angliji, so bili vedno priljubljeni in so zame nostalgični. Zabavna mačka je zraven. Nekateri med njimi so resnični liki. Sliši se, kot da imate enega izmed njih. :)

Srečno mačje držanje, upam, da vam je moj odgovor pomagal!

Susan Guinn s Floride 28. novembra 2014:

Ta članek mi je bil zelo všeč. V soseski imamo bengalsko mačko, ki pogosto prihaja k meni domov. Stalno je zunaj, zato tava kljub mojim pogovorom z njenim lastnikom. So vsi bengalci zelo trdni in izjemno težki? Vedno jo poberem in odpeljem domov, pa mi bo zlomila hrbet. Ljubim jo, čeprav je zelo ljubeča. Takole sem, mimogrede, dobil svojega Maine coona, ki ju je vzgajal ta lastnik. Lastnica mi je nekega dne rekla, lahko jo tudi zadržiš, bolj ji je všeč tvoj dom. Tudi jaz bi jo rad imel, toda ko jo pripeljem v hišo, jo bo naš Maine coon strašno napadel. Sporoča ji, da je to njeno ozemlje in ima nov dom. Bengali so čudoviti in zelo lepi. Vendar nisem vedel, da uživajo v vodi? Moj Maine Coon je zelo pameten. S šapo je kot vilice, pila pa bo le tekočo sladko vodo. Na dan opravi približno 7 kopeli, bolhe pa ni nikoli prebolela. Super objava!

Theophanes Avery (avtor) iz Nove Anglije 27. julija 2014:

Oh, no, ker je bil pred kratkim popravljen, bi me nekoliko skrbelo, da bi to lahko bil zdravstveni zaplet in ne vedenjski problem. Vsekakor bi poklicala in vprašala veterinarja.

Če ni zdravstveno, bi lahko, če bi ga uredili, spremenilo dinamiko gospodinjstva. Morda je katera od vaših samic zavzela prevladujoč položaj in ga oddaljila od zaboja. Dodajanje več zabojev za smeti, čiščenje površin, ki jih je že uporabljal, in začasna kletka so lahko v pomoč. Morda je tudi vrsta zabojnika, ki ga uporabljate. Če ga boli in ima vaša zabojnica visoke stranice, morda ne bo hotel stopiti vanje.

Srečno z njim! Upam, da boste lahko rešili ta problem.

Chris v Veliki Britaniji 27. julija 2014:

Ravnokar sem kastriral 1 leto starega samca mačke DSH. Na treningu v stranišču je bil vedno odličen. A zdaj, odkar je bil kastriran pred enim tednom, zdaj stranišče povsod, razen v zabojčku. Skupaj imam 3 mačke: 2 kastrirani samici, stari 2 leti, in tega samca, ki je star samo 1 leto - posvojil sem ga, ko je bil star nekaj mesecev. vsi se res dobro igrajo in znajo. toda v tem zadnjem tednu se pojavlja v kopeli, po tleh okrog stelje in ne v njej. Ali lahko pomagate prosim? kakšen nasvet, zakaj?

Lorna 9. februarja 2014:

Živjo, pls, pomagajte nam živeti v Katarju in na tem območju na žalost obstaja veliko potepuhov. Čudovit fant nas je posvojil pred približno dvema mesecema in mi dela življenje v hudiču, saj se nam le posmehuje v posteljah in zdi se, da to počne namerno in vsak dan naredi pošast v vsaki 4 spalnici. Res sem ga rad, saj je precej družaben in ZELO ljubeč

Drugi potepuhi na tem območju poskušajo vstopiti, vendar nikoli ne pridejo v našo spalnico. Naša vrata so vedno odprta in rad gre zunaj, vendar vztraja, da se zafrkavamo v naših posteljah POMOČ

Theophanes Avery (avtor) iz Nove Anglije 30. januarja 2014:

Oh, žal mi je, ko sem slišala za tvojo izgubo Jenny J. Včasih se te stvari kljub našim trudom preprosto zgodijo. Mislim, da vaše mačke niso imele težav med seboj zaradi bolezni - saj niste omenili, da ste opazili kakršne koli simptome ... Na splošno, ko se dve mački povežeta, te stvari ne vplivajo na njihovo vedenje drug do drugega - in dve mačke, ki se niso povezale, bodo tako ali tako prešle čez ozemlje. Sliši se, kot da je vaša mucka morda pravkar umrla, da se je v nečem zadušila ali pa je imel v pljučih strdek, možgansko anevrizmo ali pa je morda zašel v nekaj, česar ne bi smel. Na žalost obstaja veliko stvari, ki bi lahko mačko nenadoma ubile brez predhodnih simptomov. Pogosto se ne zgodijo pred svojim človekom, zato morda ne boste slišali ljudi, ki bi o tem govorili .... prepričan pa sem, da bi bile nekatere mačke, ki so videti zdrave, preden izginejo, morda vsaj delno za to krivi. Če potrebujete odgovore pokličite veterinarja, da opravi obdukcijo. Upam, da se bosta s sinom po tej izkušnji opomogla in morda bodo stvari, ki ste se jih tukaj naučili, pomagale vsem bodočim mačkam, ki jih imate. Moje misli bodo s teboj.

Jenny J 30. januarja 2014:

Hvala za vpogled, resnično cenim vašo pomoč. UPDATE ... na žalost je moja notranja mačka nenadoma umrla, ne moremo si razložiti, da je pravkar umrl, dahnejoč v zrak, vsa naša srca so popolnoma zlomljena :(. Pripeljal sem drugo mačko, da potolaži mojega sina, ki je bil popolnoma zbegan, čeprav je vedel lahko bi spet škropil ... tega tedna ni in tudi ni. ves čas ni bilo nič narobe, zdaj le, da drugega otroka nimamo več, sem se vprašal, ali mislite, da je moja druga mačka zaznala z njim je bilo nekaj narobe, kot da je bolan in je to razlog, da je škropil in se niso razumeli?

Beth Perry iz Tenneseeja 25. januarja 2014:

Hvala za vodstvo tega vozlišča, Theophanes. Zelo zanimive informacije in dodal sem jih med zaznamke! Tudi Vote Up.

Theophanes Avery (avtor) iz Nove Anglije 13. januarja 2014:

No, upam, da je bil ta članek v pomoč lilcupcake. Mačke redko počnejo stvari brez razloga. Upam, da se boste lahko popravili s svojo muco.

Jenny J: Sliši se, kot da se vaša mačka ali mačke niso dobro odzvale na vaš odhod nekaj dni. To ni tako redko, kot si morda mislite. Ne glede na to, kaj počnete, boste morali res dobro očistiti razdražene predele. Po tem toplo priporočam, da vlagate v kakšen FeliWay in ga razpršite v bližini območij, ki jih je jezen. To bi ga moralo pomiriti. Preizkusite lahko tudi trik z mokro krpo. Vzemite vlažno krpo in drgnite za ušesi problematične mačke, nato pa vzemite krpo in drgnite mesta blizu mesta, kjer je jezen, da vam ne bo nič hudega, če bo pri tem drgnil po glavi. To bo znova uvedlo njegov lastni vonj kot lastnik ozemlja in bi mu moralo olajšati zmedene živce. Sliši se, kot da je vaša bolj dominantna mačka videla pomanjkanje vrhunske mačke (vas) in se odločila, da poskusite za to mesto! Se zgodi včasih ... Toplo priporočam te stvari, pa tudi nadzorovane obiske hiše. Dlje ko mačka ostane v garaži, slabše se bo počutil, kot bi napadel na ozemlje nekoga drugega in slabše bo ravnal. Morda boste želeli razmisliti, da bi ga zaprli v hišo, če ga ne morete nadzorovati, dokler se stvari ne uredijo. To lahko traja nekaj časa. Vso srečo!

Jenny J 13. januarja 2014:

PROSIM POMOČ !!!! moja družina je odšla na dopust 3 dni. Posvojili smo dve mački, stari 7 let, ki sta jih tu zaračunavali skoraj dve leti in sta se vedno dobro razumeli. Eden je bolj plah kot drugi. the day we were packing for vacation the more timid cat was acting different like if i put something int the suit case he would run or jump, then left for vacay came home and the more timid ( isay more he really isn't timid he is shyer with new things on the whole he is fine) he starts to pee on everything. My other cat can't stand the sight of him and hisses and wants nothing to do with him. So i serrated them one in the house the cat that's peeing has the garage right now. my husband wants to get rid of the shyer one...i want to FIX this! i feel HELPLESS!

lilcupcake on January 11, 2014:

I want you to know, that you may have just possibly saved my cats life. months ago she started doing exactly what you said, pooping anywhere but always peeing in the litterbox. I just thought she was being bratty because that's her personality. Lately, she's started falling off of things (such as the back of the chair) while in a dead sleep. That worried me, which lead me here. thank god.

Melissa Flagg COA OSC from Rural Central Florida on September 15, 2013:

Awesome, thank you! It was really weird, all of a sudden the third cat went after Seth and they started fighting. We finally got them separated and put the "rescue" cat in a crate until we took him to the humane society the next day. But ever since then, Seth and his brother Osiris have taken to fighting whenever they see each other. And it started real slow, they'd start fighting once in awhile, and then we had to separate them completely because it gradually became whenever they'd see each other. Seth isn't the nicest cat in the world however. He's actually quite a jerk, but I can't help it, I love him anyway lol.

Theophanes Avery (author) from New England on September 14, 2013:

Ah- in that case it's a security issue. The third cat must have really freaked him out. It's a good thing you kept them in the same room together though. That should make it easier on all of you. The Feliway and/or the washcloth should help a lot with security issues and making them feel safe. I do suggest keeping the cage/crate for at least a little while after they're both free together. Serves as a nice safe escape should one cat need it. :)

Melissa Flagg COA OSC from Rural Central Florida on September 14, 2013:

Oh thank you! They were actually raised together, since they are brothers, and never really fought until one of them accidentally had a run in with an unfixed male cat that we were holding to take to the humane society. We recently had to renovate the room the one cat was in, so we've had to essentially use the caging method until their appointment next week. So at the moment, both cats are in the same room, but one is in the crate (a large crate, I try to be as humane as possible) while the other is out, and then we switch them.

Theophanes Avery (author) from New England on September 14, 2013:

Ah well, that's a complicated question Daughter of Maat. Where the two ever living together? Or where they always separate? If they were only recently separated how long has it been?

If the two were raised together you probably have a better shot of a happy reunion, if not then you might have a challenge ahead of you. Either way it is workable. Fix them both, give them both time to heal (1-2 weeks) and then start your reintroduction process. Now I don't know how you have them set up... maybe you have one upstairs, the other down, or perhaps one lives in a closed bedroom... doesn't really matter except it does for reintroduction because at this moment wherever the cat lives it will now consider its territory. This is important to know because now you're probably in the situation where you're introducing the second cat to the first's territory. IF you have a third space in the house neither cat has been (let's say a basement) this neutral territory might be best for this. Otherwise I highly suggest the caging method. I wrote about this before in another hub Caging Cats: When and Why it is Sometimes Necessary (scroll down to the section on introducing new cats.) In the meantime there is a product called Feliway that's great. You can buy at pet stores or feed stores. It's a spray that to humans has no scent but it encourages cats to mark their territory by head rubbing not spraying. You can also use the wet washcloth method where you rub the cats ears yourself with a wet washcloth and then rub that onto whatever marking post you want them to use. It'll transfer their scent in this way and achieves the same thing.

Vso srečo!

Melissa Flagg COA OSC from Rural Central Florida on September 14, 2013:

I have a question, :) I have two male cats that I haven't had a chance to fix yet and they have reached sexual maturity, which means if they see each other they fight like.... well... cats and dogs. We keep them separated at the moment to prevent injury and are schedule to get them fixed, but I was wondering if they will stop fighting after they lose their.... sexuality? :) I'm hoping they'll stop spraying too, I'll be cleaning the house with vinegar before they get home!

Ro on June 23, 2013:

I have a male cat named Bubba who was left outside our 3 acre home and his Mommy just didn't dome home and he was still very tiny. Of course we took him in but we had so much trouble with him peeing on beds, in laundry baskets, my purses - you name it he pees on it. I called around trying to find him a home and this woman told me I was horrible for not having his urine and kidney's checked yet. My Vet didn't feel it was necessary but he did it any way and some of it had to be sent to Ames, IA to be tested and he was just as the vet knew - he was ok with no medical problems. They have a name for it Ideopathic something and I'd love to find him a very save outdoor farm that has a great set up for the cats and where there are no blacktops around like we have. He's neutered and front declawed but with 4 cats I had to to keep my furniture in one piece. We want to only find this cat a very good home as our grandson lives with us and he's 10 and he l loves this cat and we need to find him a new and better home for him as he and two other females live in the basement and are starting to turn wild. So we feel bad about that from time to time and bring them up and every time that boy finds a place to pee. I live in NE IA - ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS FOR ME?

Theophanes Avery (author) from New England on February 08, 2013:

Sounds like your cat is just quirky. I have two cats right now that drool profusely when they're happy. It's a bit gross, as I imagine would be spraying! Sounds like he just looses concentration and control in the moment. I wish I could offer advice that could help with that but I don't think there is anything you can do...

lisa jackson on February 06, 2013:

my male cat has been fixed , two years ago but when he comes for a cuddle he seems to get over excited and sprays , whys this?

Theophanes Avery (author) from New England on January 24, 2013:

Well, I'll wish you the best of luck there! Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

bumlifting on January 24, 2013:

"My cat was fixed at 4 months and we've had him since he was a baby".

I guss that introduction i had written wasn't clear on wehter he was fixed or not. Sorry, i'm not very good at writing or spelling. But yes my cat is fixed. My cat was fixed at 4 months. The soonest we could get it done.

:-/ that's kinda what i figgured. He's a messy, i'm going to continue toilet training him anyways. He was soooo close to peeing in the toilet yesterday! He understands the concept of poop and pee goes in there. He'd love watching my hubby pee and he's always had a curiosity of the toilet. He's not afraid of the flushing either, he enjoys watching his poo go down. Hopefully once he does start using the toilet he'll keep his rear down. Thanks anyways.

Theophanes Avery (author) from New England on January 22, 2013:

Well it could be two things really. Is your cat fixed? Male cats will pee like this when they're marking territory. Unfortunately if he is fixed then it's just a behavior that's ingrained in his routine... I've had a few messy cats (even one that was female, UGH) and I have yet to find anything that teaches them proper toilet techniques. Sorry if that's not the answer you wanted.

bumlifting on January 22, 2013:

My cat was fixed at 4 months and we've had him since he was a baby. He's 3 now, but all his life he's been a butt lifter. Even in a lidded tall box he'd manage to get high enough so it'd leak through and down the side. He's been switched to a regular box in the bathroom. Why?, cuz I'm toilet training him. When he first got his new spot he was peeing IN it, now.3 months later, he's decided to lift. Potty training was going great, till the lift. His box is cleaned daily, and totally scrubbed squeeky clean every week or two. No matter what he'll lift. I've even lightly pushed his bum down while he went, still didn't stop him. I'm gonna take a wild guss and say he's sloopy. Which means i can't toilet train him anymore since i don't want cat piss all over the bathroom. Odd how when in the tall boxes he lifted just the right amount to pee outside the box, once put in a regular he lifts just enough to hit the wall. Every area around his box was swiftly tarped. So am i totally SOL on getting him to stop, and quit the toilet training. Or would putting something around the box that'd make his pee splash back at him fix it?

Theophanes Avery (author) from New England on April 13, 2012:

DzyMsLizzy: I am not so sure your cats are marking or are just sloppy. Either way, if you can't use a covered kitty litter box my best suggestion is just to line all the target areas with cardboard, poster board, or cloth and either throw it away every time you clean the box or launder it if you chose cloth. It's not a perfect solution but it does make the mess easier to manage and the smell down a bit. Hope that helps.

Theophanes Avery (author) from New England on April 13, 2012:

Kris Z: No, you cannot neuter your new cat but you can spay her. Spaying is a good thing to do and it doesn't matter if the cat is already an adult (unless it's super old, then it's rather iffy if it should be bothered with or not but this doesn't seem to be the case with you.)

Dj: Breeders usually have a few methods to keep their cats from doing too much damage. Many breeders cage their males so they don't have to deal with spraying. Personally, though I realize this is the easiest option for the human, I think it might not be the best for the cat. Some other breeders will dedicate one room of their house to their breeding project, keeping the male in there 100% of the time and the female in there to be bred and raise kittens, because kittens can be destructive beasties too. of course the room will get sprayed and damaged but at least it's a smaller area to clean up and maintain control over. Some breeders that only have one male sometimes just let them wander free and hope they don't start spraying. Sometimes they don't, most times they do.

Lori: Do you want this cat to be a housecat and family pet or do you just want to take care of him? Quite frankly you can't blame a cat who has lived it's whole life outside not to understand that peeing in the house isn't OK. After all it's what he was doing when he was roaming around free. Unfortunately he was already an adult when you neutered him so the likelihood of him stopping is pretty small. Many people who take in feral cats will build shelters for them outside and feed them but not necessarily try to bring them in the house, or only do so when supervised or under extreme situations (sub zero weather for example.) At this point he's a semi-wild animal and will probably stay that way in some respects, though by all means with patience he may tame down a bit.

Jen Duncan: I hate to say this but your cat probably is somewhat of an accidental sprayer. First he got the UTI and started peeing in appropriate places to get your attention and now the smell is there so he feels the need to keep refreshing it. My suggestion? Clean the area VERY VERY well and invest in some FeliWay which you can spray in the same spot. It should encourage him to head butt instead of spray. That being said it could also be due to stress... I think one of the best ways to deal with outside stresses like the neighbors dogs is to give him a place he feels safe. You can put a box or a cat tree or somewhere he can cuddle in a quiet dark place of the house so he can retreat there whenever he gets overwhelmed. That's the best I can do for that! Sorry I can't make your neighbor's dogs cooperate more!

anonomyus on March 08, 2012:

Iam considering buying a male cat 2yrs old from a rescue shelter he is uneutred. So my q is if I have neutred will he spray?

Jen Duncan on February 22, 2012:

I have an 8 yr old male cat. Who has suddenly started to mark the house. He didn't do it after our first daughter was born, didn't when we got a new female kitty, didn't do it when all of a sudden his litter mate was killed by dogs. He literally has started suddenly. we had him checked by the vet, he had a UTI, which we treated with antibiotics. But he still sprays. I am 9mo pregnant, but we have not done any furniture moving, or any huge changes. We have neighbors who just installed an invisible fence for their dogs, and the dogs go nuts any time there is a noise. I assume this could be a trigger for stress. Also, we have 2 new male cats who wonder around our driveway and at times into our back yard. I also assume this could be a stress trigger. How can I help him relax with the barking dogs, and strange cats wandering? He hates dogs! he will attack them if given the chance. How do I get my neighbors dogs and cats to cool it? LOL

TENKAY from Philippines on February 17, 2012:

Thank you for an informative hub. I had a male siamese who was a seasonal sprayer, when the neighborhood lady-cats are in season/heat. Until he died, I was not able to solve the spraying problem. I got a female persian cat (for 3 years now) and thanks God, I have no problem with her, yet. I was able to bred her twice already. I have a big breeding cage (a former parrot cage I bought second hand) where I kept the pair for 3 to 5 days. After the male cat goes home, I let my cat stay inside the house. She goes back to the cage when she has her kittens.

Lori on February 10, 2012:

Hi. We recently took in a cat that we arent sure of is feral or just abandoned. He will let us pet him but that is the extent. We just had him neutered but he has started spraying. I know he is under stress because he is used to being outside but we live in Michigan and winter is cold here. We wanted to give him a better life. Right now he is hiding under the bed where he has been since we brought him home from the vet. What should we do?

Megan Carl - Mane Alternative from Utah on May 29, 2011:

Thank you for the very informative article. I have dealt with a few of these things in the past - most have been successful thru patience and love. (sometimes thru gritted teeth. lol)

Kris Z from New York on April 05, 2011:

Can you neuter an older female cat? I recently (like 3 days ago) rescued an older female cat, about 3 years old, can I still get her neuter?

CASE1WORKER from UNITED KINGDOM on November 04, 2010:

My cats are starting to wet- we have just started decorating- it think it is the upset and the paint smell- all the family expect me to sort it- now vet and cat psychiatrist!

Dj on October 26, 2010:

I am wanting to breed my cat but want to know how you keep a male cat in the same home without having to deal with the male cat spraying the house when the female is in heat. HOW DO BREEDERS DO IT!! You mentioned something about a cat room??

Liz Elias from Oakley, CA on July 18, 2010:

Hi- This was a great article with all of the right answers--for most cases! ;-) To other readers of this post--yes, he is right--these things usually work!

We just have a weird situation.

We have a small problem with 2 of our tabby cats--one an orange male; one a gray/white/black female. (All 4 kitties are spayed/neutered). The particular orange tabby who is the culprit came to us, injured. We rescued him, had his wound treated & had him 'fixed.' The problem was, he'd been outdoors for we have no idea how long..and the vet said he was approx. 8 months old at that time (2007). So, he'd already developed "the habit."

My problem is, Icannot use vinegar, because their favorite 'accident' spot is IN the litter box. I've caught both of them squatting appropriately, then, halfway through, raise up their butt & let fly out over the top of the box.

It APPEARS deliberate..but, reluctant to use the vinegar, as I do not want to chase them away from litter the boxes entirely!

We have small bathrooms, and our only option is those triangular boxes that fit the corner of the room. Sometimes, the sprayers hit the middle of the floor; more often, it is the wall, or the side of the vanity.

This creates a lingering odor problem that is impossible to clean beyond a good soaking in the product "Urine Gone."

Zakaj? As the house is not new, there was already beginning to be some lifting of the linoleum, so the one box near that, the urine runs down the outside of the tub & gets down under the floor.

On the other side, where they 'get' the wall or vanity, it is wood paneled wall (I know--who puts paneling in a bathroom, for pity sakes??!!), and the other is a woodgrain vanity sink cabinet...of course, made of that cheap composition board garbage, which, when wet, swells up. This errant pee has soaked the bottom of that cupboard, and run down the wall behind the baseboard and hence under the linoleum on that side.

We cannot afford to tear out/replace the cabinet or floors.

So....what to do?? I don't have space for a large tub as in your suggestion. The only sort-of solution I've had is to use packing tape to tape up a sheet of plastic tarp material behind the litter box, in the corner, and draped down into the box, buried under the litter.

It works for a while, but soon enough starts to smell & look disgusting on its own. I have to remove it if guests are coming.

So, mostly, I just try to spray and over-spray the Urine Gone everywhere, and let THAT soak in, hopefully helping some.

That said, there is still an odor that you will notice upon walking in the door if you don't live here and have not grown 'accustomed to it.'

Sigh. ---Sorry for such a long rant as a comment on your article--really meant more as a request for any other suggestions.

Michelle on June 04, 2010:

Help. I am going thru it right now. I think it started when we put a doggy door on our skidding glass door out to the screened in room. I think he saw a cat outside and started spraying in the screened in room. He started spraying in the house. 5 weeks now. We took him last week and the vet stated that he had an inflmmed bladder. I think she gave him a pain meds. We currently have him a basement room with his food on one room and kitty litter in another. We want to get the carpets cleaned before we let him out so he does not smell the urine. We also have another cat that is with him. How long do you suggest we keep him quarentend from the rest of the house? Help!!!! N

Angela Michelle Schultz from United States on May 20, 2010:

For a kitty litter box, we actually use a tub like the one you have above, but instread of cutting out a slit from the side, we cut a hole in the corner of the cover, and place the side with the hole in the corner. This reduces mess greatly!

Theophanes Avery (author) from New England on August 27, 2009:

That's too bad! I know I wish someone else wrote this article when I was having problems (just about one of each cause. haha) Sounds like Froggy was stressed out about something and reenforcing his territory's boundries. Some cats will do this even when they see/smell a strange cat outside in the yard (through the window for indoor kitties!) Or when they hear dogs barking if they're not used to it, etc. If the stresser goes away sometime sthey stop on their own. Oh well, now you know! :)

David Fallon from Pomona, CA on August 27, 2009:

extrememly helpful! I wish I had had this article with my cat Froggy...he sprayed for years and then mysteriously he stopped one day, as if finally seem to understand how horrible we thought his behavior was lol

VeronikaProkopetz from Trail on March 27, 2009:

Hi Theo This is an excellent article very educational. Like you said, some cats just dumb. One of my kitty is not the brightest in a crayon box. He always walk to a different beat of the drum, even when he was a kitten. Now he is fourteen years old and suffering from temporary senility and IBD. He is skinny as a rake and his on steroid's. Sometimes he looks so confused about his litter box, he forgets where it is. I feel so bad for him. But I do love him just a same. If he wasn't around he would leave a large hole in my life. I have almost lost him twice. Each time, thanks to my Vet he was resusoitated.. I dread the time when I will have to make the decision to let him go.


Spraying After Neutering

A cat that is currently spraying urine will typically continue this behavior for up to six months after the neutering procedure, according to VetInfo. This is due to the testosterone remaining in the cat's system. The behavior should lessen and disappear over time, but if it continues a more serious issue could be the cause. A urinary tract infection could be causing your cat's continued issues with spraying. It requires a proper diagnosis by your veterinarian and treatment with antibiotics. Other medical issues can cause your cat discomfort and stress, leading to urine marking as well. It's best to see your veterinarian to determine if an illness could be the cause of your kitty's behavior.


Spraying alone motivates many people to have their pets neutered, because feline spray smells awful and is difficult to clean up. Male cats tend to roam, fight and lay down urine markings more than females, but cats of either gender can engage in these unfortunate activities. Neutering your cat young can prevent him from starting these behaviors altogether. Fixing an older cat has a 90 percent chance of reducing them, according to Mar Vista Animal Medical Center.

Don't worry about your cat becoming lazy, fat or boring after the neuter operation. The procedure alone does not cause these side effects, although it does reduce your pet's motivation to exercise. While roughly one in four cat owners believe neutering their cat made him more complacent, most cats don't show a noticeable personality change after the operation, according to the University of California–Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. Younger cats are back to their normal selves in a matter of days, but older cats may take a bit longer to adjust. If your cat has spent years with all his pieces intact, it could take a few weeks or months for him to get used to life with fewer hormones.


Once your dog or cat has been neutered, they are less likely to behave aggressively. They are also less likely to engage in territory-marking behavior such as spraying urine in your house. Finally, they will be less likely to try to mount everything they come into contact with after they've been neutered.

If they aren't spayed, cats will go into heat at around 6 months of age. They will stay in heat for an average of 6 days. The cycle of heat repeats every 3 weeks on average during their season. When they are in heat, cats become very vocal and demanding. They may bleed and even spray urine.

Dogs generally only go into heat twice a year. They also bleed and urinate excessively during their cycle. Spaying prevents your pet from ever going into heat and exhibiting these behaviors.


Solving the Spraying Riddle

If your cat hasn’t been spayed or neutered yet, the first step is to get them fixed. It’s also critical to rule out any medical problems with your vet. What looks like spraying might actually be the sign of a urinary tract inflammation or infection, bladder stones, hyperthyroidism, or a host of other common feline medical conditions. Once your cat gets a clean bill of health from the vet, here are some ways to try and trouble-shoot and tackle your cat’s spraying situation at home:

Sparkling Clean: If there’s the even slightest scent of urine left behind, your cat will know, thanks to their 200 million scent receptors. And the smell may encourage them to keep going back to spray the same spot. To thoroughly clean all the areas your cat has marked, use a good enzymatic, bio-based cleaner, like the Nature’s Miracle ADVANCE Cat Stain & Odor Eliminator. And check out this article for tips (and a caution) about cleaning up pet messes.

Calming Pheromones: After cleaning, plug in some Feliway® multi-cat calming pheromone diffusers around your home. Feliway multi-cat has been shown to help reduce stress-related problems between cats in multi-cat homes and situations. (Note that the Feliway is also sometimes sold under the “Comfort Zone” brand and the multi-cat product is different from the “classic” Feliway/Comfort Zone product, which is intended for single-cat situations. And they’re both also different from the FeliScratch product, which is helpful for directing/redirecting unwanted cat scratching.)

Cat Away: If another cat is wandering into your yard and stressing your kitty out, try pulling the shades and/or moving your cat’s perch to another location. This next tip is a stretch but worth trying – if it’s the neighbor’s outdoor cat causing the stress and you have a good relationship with your neighbor. Let them know that their cat’s presence in your yard is stressing your cat and causing them to pee in your house. Maybe, they'd be willing to keep their cat indoors, or at least in their own yard (there are cat-proof fences available, including this option which, although a little pricey is highly effective for most cats). If it's not your neighbor's cat, or if it is but they won't keep their cat indoors or put up cat-proof fencing, consider a humane outdoor animal deterrent, like the Hoont Cobra Jet Spray.

Environmental Enrichment: Keeping your cat active — physically and mentally — will help increase their well-being and reduce their stress level. Training, interactive toys, food puzzles, and plenty of vertical perches and quiet places to hide will help keep them busy and content.

Boxes and Bowls: To minimize battles in a multi-cat household, make sure there’s a litter box for every cat plus an extra one, as well as ensuring that litter boxes are located in different areas and levels of your home . Giving each cat their own food bowl and separate feeding areas can also help reduce conflicts.

Supplements: The VetriScience Composure chews can help calm and reduce stress in cats in certain situations and are worth trying. Your vet can also discuss and recommend other supplements that may help. (See also the note at the end of this article about medications your vet can prescribe that can help, too.)

If Your Cat Is a "High Pee-er": If your cat simply pees high, but in the litter box, you might want to use boxes with higher sides to avoid the mess. The important part is that there's still one side that's low enough for your cat to get in. Especially as a cat ages, getting in and out of their litter box can cause another set of problems and a whole lot of discomfort (as many cats over 7 years old have arthritis).

These first two box options fit the bill, with three high sides and one lower one.

You could also switch to covered boxes, but you've got to be extra careful to scoop covered boxes at least once daily, as they are more likely to trap ammonia and other smells that can irritate your cat's nose/lungs and drive them out of the boxes. The Modkat boxes are a little pricey, but function great for many cats and homes.

Contrary to popular belief, a cat that hisses is not behaving badly or displaying aggression. When a cat hisses, it's because something is wrong--though that may include aggressive instincts. In order to stop a cat from hissing, you must first figure out what's bothering the cat, and then work from there.
