Default Neigbors cat is spraying on my house!!!!

that little f*cker!! I've seen his a** spray on the outside of our shed in our backyard...but I just now caught him spraying out on our deck..a foot from the sliding glass door!

What can I do? anything? I'm going to say something to the neighbors..they've got 6 or 7 cats that are outside all the time..I know this little sh*t isn't fixed either..I'm so so pissed (no pun intended) right now

Spray a non-toxic citrus spray around the places he frequents. Cats don't like that smell.

Why Does My Cat Hate Oranges?

See post #3. Ask for it at a pet store.

Either way, your neighbor's cat needs to be restrained outdoors, or kept indoors. My room mate has an INDOOR cat. She lets him out on the patio sometimes, but he stays indoors, all the time.

You need an enzyme cleaner - ask for one at the pet store that is specifically for cat urine. Even then, it might not do it. MY DD's cat urinated on her laminate floor and it trickled down underneath to the underlayer. She had to pull up the floor in that spot, treat the underlayer, and then put down new pieces. Good luck!

Neighbors like this really stink ( if you know what I mean)


I would trap the cat and have it neutered and adopted out to a better home.

Stink Free is a enzyme cleaner that has worked well for us. It can be bought at Petco and is pricey, but works!

Default Too funny

Emma, forgive me but I had to laugh reading your post. I could just imagine you catching him at it.

Please try the recommended chemical/enzyme counter measures and know that the animal is not intent on personally ticking you off.

In theory, a way to control stray cat populations is to trap neuter and release. They continue to guard their turf. That is how we got our last couple of pet cats which as they got older became strictly house cats.

It is no picnic trying to lock a cat in the house when it is used to carousing and not much hope however owns the one you have problems with will do so.

Good luck!

It might not be a bad idea to have a garden hose handy. The cat wouldn't like that too much.

Makes you want to get a dog - huh. Sounds like you haven't lived there very long - have you met your neighbors. If you have, you could discuss this with them and have photos catching the cat in the act.
