Stress Spraying formula is more for unwelcome reactions (i.e urinating!) as a result of the animal feeling stressed, or unable to escape from a situation.
Territorial Spray formula is useful when the animal feels threatened (and this can trigger aggression as well) For example … by someone new entering into their environment (e.g another cat/dog, or human baby, human partner, etc).
But there is a bit of a crossover between the two formulas.
Also, quite of few of our clients have found that using one or other of these two, plus Pet Kalm Eze formula can really make a positive difference. As a background remedy for calming.
Stressful times for family effect family members – including pets.
Animals grieve the same as humans and not just from the loss of their own species, but from any loss of another species can still be a huge loss and impact for both human and animals. Canines who pin when left at kennels, also suffer. If your pet is already sterile, if (not sterile) the best thing to do is sterilize male cats no earlier than 12 months age. Females can be done sooner at approx. 6 months old, no later, as a cat can fall pregnant early.
New smells (renovations, relocations) or another cat or kitten comes to live in their space, could have started this behavior. But this is a natural instinct in some cats, so punishing or scolding is not the answer. What you may cause is further fear in their environment. If he’s not a breeding cat, have him or her desexed before the habit gets obsessive.
Since the “purpose” of spraying is to mark an area with urine odor, it is not surprising that as the odor is cleaned up, the cat wants to refresh the area with more urine. Cleaning alone does little to reduce spraying. Cats that mark in one or two particular areas may cease if the function of the area is changed. If he or she has specific areas for spraying, place small saucers of food in these locations or a cushion or cat bed. Some cats are less likely to spray if a little of their cheek gland scent can be placed in the sprayed area.
This may change the area to one of cheek gland marking and since the odor remains and the desire to spray may be greatly reduced.
Clean the areas with alcohol, not bleach first to remove the urine smell.
When you can perhaps get the same smell marking effect by rubbing a cotton ball or gauze square on your cat’s cheek or chin glands and then rubbing the scent onto the previously sprayed areas. You will need to be consistent with all of these disciplines, it will take time and effort; the trick is to be consistent. For stressed pets that are not happy about new members or changes in their environment, apply drops to the body as well as to meals. Dogs and farm animals, stir in drops to water dish and trough once a week.
HOW TO STOP A CAT FROM SPRAYING
If you have a problem with cat spraying, it’s time for more than just another round of furniture cleaning. You need a solution—fast. Not only do you need to know how to remove cat spray, but also what caused your cat to start spraying in the first place, so you can help stop the bad habit.
When your cat sprays, he’s telling you he’s stressed or fearful, and that can cause significant stress for you and your household. Thankfully, you can help reduce feline spraying if you understand why it’s happening. For best results, it’s important to make a proper determination between ordinary urine spraying and behavioral urine spraying.
The Signs of Ordinary Cat Urine Spraying
Cat spraying doesn’t mean your cat is mad at you. … It’s a sign of another issue.
If your cat is squatting and urinating on a horizontal surface, there are several possible reasons for this behavior. e.g bladder or cystitis infection. e.g use the Cystitis formula
Your cat may feel uncomfortable because you’re not adequately cleaning the litter box. Or your cat may simply not like the type of litter or litter box you use. Try different types of litter and litter box sizes to see if any of those make a difference. It’s also possible the litter box is located in an area where there’s too much noise or foot traffic. Try moving the box to a more isolated area in the home.
Is accessibility to the litter box an issue?
Make sure your cat has easy access to the litter box. If your cat has hip issues, maybe she doesn’t want to step over a large entrance to get inside the box. Or maybe another pet blocks her access. If all other potential causes have been ruled out, check with your veterinarian to see if there is a health-related issue. Barring any of these reasons, stress could be a culprit, just like it is for vertical spraying.
The Signs of Behavioral Cat Spraying
If your cat directs urine onto a vertical surface (marking), his spraying is likely caused by stress or nervousness.
Male cats spray most often—particularly adult, unneutered males. But that doesn’t mean they’re the only ones that spray. Any cat, male or female, can spray. Stress-triggers that can lead to spraying include a recent move, new furniture in your home, loud noises, or a new pet or family member joining your household. Even a neighbours cat wandering around outside might be enough to cause your cat to feel defensive and start spraying. In general, anything that causes your cat to feel insecure could lead to inappropriate spraying.
How to Clean Cat Spray
Before you can stop spraying, you have to clean up any urine—and clean it well.2 Traces of previous spraying can trigger your cat’s desire to re-mark an area, making it cyclical. In addition to standard household cleaning products or urine-removal products, many pet parents find vinegar-water mixtures, followed by baking soda, to be effective at removing odor. Be sure not to use a cleaner with ammonia, which is actually a component of cat urine and can trigger further marking incidents.

~ How to Locate Urine Stains
While the most obvious way to find cat pee is to sniff it out or accidentally step in it, this doesn’t always work if the stains are old and dry. The best way to locate dried pet stains is to use a UV black light flashlight as a urine detector.
Close the blinds or curtains and turn off the lights. Switch on the flashlight and sweep it around the room slowly. Cat urine shows up as glowing spots, and if you see some, place a marker on the area so that you know exactly where to use a cat pee stains cleaner odour (natural homemade one).
Preparing a Cat Urine Stain for Cleaning
If you’re lucky enough to catch your cat in the act and the stain is fresh, it’s essential to clean up before using a cleaning solution. Doing this makes the job of carpet cleaning easier.
How to Reduce Cat Spraying
You can take several steps to help reduce the triggers that lead to your cat’s stress-related spraying.
Make Sure Your Cat is Spayed or Neutered
Spaying or neutering your cat—especially early in life—will usually eliminate, or at least decrease, spraying. Even if your furry friend is no longer a kitten, spaying or neutering still helps to reduce spraying. Talk with your vet for a professional recommendation.
Help Your Cat Feel More Confident
Many times, spraying is a sign of insecurity. Help your cat feel more confident by setting up window perches, cat trees, and cat condos your cat can claim as her territory. The more territory a cat “owns,” the more confident she feels. Playing with your cat more can also help, as pent-up energy can lead to stress and nervousness. If your cat is stressed by seeing a feral cat, try closing the blinds at night.
If the problem is another animal, like a dog aggravating your cat or another cat bullying your pet, you might need to re-introduce them so they get along better. You may need to keep them in separate rooms and feed them on opposite sides of a closed door to help slowly build positive associations. Swap scents and then slowly release them back into each other’s lives, starting with supervised visits.
When cats spray urine, they’re generally acting out due to fear, stress, or disruptions in their lives. Asking the right questions to understand why your cat is spraying is the first step to finding a solution. Seemingly subtle changes in your pet’s daily routine or surroundings can cause a big reaction. Take action, and you’ll likely notice big improvements in your cat’s stress levels.
