What do you do with a cat…

that sprays or marks the walls in the house? She’s fixed. Yes, I got to watch her spray. It was an interesting lesson. I didn’t realize that cats had such aim, such control, such… SMELL!!

How do you get a cat to stop marking? It’s on the walls, on the woodwork and in my plants. I can smell it when I walk in the front door in the evening. It’s… well… less than pleasant.

I don’t want to take out anger or frustration on an animal that is hardwired to mark territory and that in all honesty is marking because she feels threatened by too many others cats in the house… but I also am sick of smelling it and know that it will get worse as summer, heat and humidity increases.

Suggestions? Solutions?
