Wonder if anyone can help me. Have 4 cats, 1 17years, no probs. 2 at 10 years and a 1 year old neutered Maine Coon. Just recently one of the 10 year olds (neutered) has started spraying all round the house. Think he's depressed due to the Maine Coon and is marking HIS house as he sees it. Have to keep cleaning it up and it does smell bad even though he's neutered. Try to keep him away from sof furnishings etc and at least the sofa is leather so can be cleaned easily. I don't get cross with him as his nose already is out of joint. Don't use bleach as it will make him spray again apparently. But HOW can I stop him??? He has plenty of space inside and out but is spraying ALL the time around the garden and in the house. We've always had 3 or 4 cats and never had this problem before. Vet says he's in good health so it's not that. what can I do next?????

This is a VERY common problem. I have 20 cats and lots of experience with this. Get NATURE'S MIRACLE solution, available at most pet stores, to get the smell out. It's not cheap, but it's worth it. Follow the directions. Just because YOU can't smell it anymore, doesn't mean THEY can't.

To get him to STOP....check out these links. I have many more, so email me privately (hubiNOkenubi@SPAMaol.com) if you need more info. (remove NO SPAM to reply).

White Vinegar is awesome for cleaning uncarpeted floors to get cat odors out, I didn't believe it until I tried it. Also, there is a product called fel-a-way (the a may actually be the letter "i") Pet Smart used to sell it. The product is a spray and It also comes as a "plug in". The smell is supposed to calm animals, which is often used in situations such as yours. We used to sell it often when I was working at a vet clinic. However, it is an over the counter product. Good luck.

Not the best answer. Is get rid of meaning to put it to sleep? Otherwise it could become someone else's problem.
