Do You Know How to Stop Your Cat From Spraying Urine?
Spraying urine is one of the main problems a cat owner has to deal with. Cats use their urine to mark their territory and to notify other cats they have already been there. This typical behavior is known as urine spraying.
Your pets are not spraying in order to make you angry. It is part of cats’ natural behavior and is coded in the genes of every cat, no matter if it is domestic or wild.
Urination outside of the cat toilet is not spraying. What makes urination different from spraying is that urination is usually done on flat surface, e.g. a towel, a mat or rug, while spraying is done on vertical surface, e.g. a wall.
Male and female cats both spray urine but it is more common for male. They spray on vertical surfaces, such as walls and furniture.
