It isn't uncommon for outside cats to tick off inside cats. None of mine spray when an outside cat is within view, but one gets prettttty wound up!

Anyway... good for you for not just dumping your cat! Some people will come up with every possible excuse to just dump their cat(s) when faced with a challenging situation.

Since you are willing to listen to ideas and try possible solutions, you will find one soon! Thanks for being open-minded and willing.

Maybe you will find the following info useful. A place to start at least.

I am at wits end. I don't think we tried paxil, but we did do prozac for 15 months and I had a similar experience where initially it seemed to stop it, but it just slowed it down in frequency...

so tired but cannot murder him or turn him out to a slow death living on his own... hunting for another home for him in a single cat situation, but he is a tough sell... very sweet loves to cuddle under covers... but also chews the corners of furniture...

praying you found a solution for yours and it might be our magic bullet too!

We are a multi cat household too and I did find one fool proof way to get them to stop spraying floor length drapes. I took aluminum foil and placed it on the floor .....a third of the length on the floor with 2/3 up against the drape in anticipation of spraying. On the floor part I sprinkled very generously along that part, lots of cayenne pepper. they don't go anywhere near it. hope this helps someone....
