Q: How can you keep a cat from spraying in the house?

Feliway doesn't work on him. His spraying is not territorial as much as it is anger. He tends to do it when he wants our attention and we don't give it or we're away from home and not there when he wants us to be.

My adult male (neutered!) cat began doing the same thing. My first step: Feliway plug in for the wall, Simple Solution to clean. Neither worked. I suspected it was because of the new kitten in the house, but I took him to the Vet to make sure there was nothing medically wrong with him. I was right: he's just jealous. The Vet put him on kitty prozac, which is helping a lot. Good luck to you!

You seemed to have discovered the reason why he's doing it, which is half the battle. You may want to consider confining him while you're out of the house and give him a little extra TLC when you're home.

Our nutered cat Michael was spraying everything and we were living in my grandmothers 60 year old house. We took him to the vet and the doc put him on a very low dose of valium for 30 days. Doc said it would make him forget the behavier. He slept a lot, but it worked like a charm.
