you can buy sprays at the pet store that is a keep off spray you spray it where you don't want the cat i have also used tinfoil flat on a surface just stick a spike or something in the ground to hold a few sheets down around the bushes works on furniture to keep a cat from scratching or going on it too

White vinegar works well for getting rid of cat spray smell and is cheap, I would hose down the bush & the area around it really well and then try mixing some white vinegar w/ water in a spray bottle & spray it down.

"have you tried Nature's Miracle Stain & Odor Remover?" This is exactly what I was going to say. We had several cats and a senior dog - all of whom did something smelly at least a few times. We used this stuff all of the time and it helped.

have you tried Nature's Miracle Stain & Odor Remover? We use it in our house for when out cats have an accident and it works great. Plus you can mix it 50/50 or full strength.

It sounds like a cat has decided that the bush is a part of his turf and he marking it. If you check the reviews you will find some things that can help under cat odor. You might also try putting something under the bush that a cat would not want to stand on

I hate to say it but bunnyhunny is right. Remove the bush, if it 's your. I had a bush out front that every dog peed on during their walks. The little stickers ended up slowly killing it. I would have to trim that thing back every month or so to remove the brown spots. I saw the dogs doing this and told their owners to please don't let them go in my yard. Anyway, that bush is no longer there. I cut it all the way down to a stub. Next- getting the roots out.
