ARGH I am so mad, I just caught my 7-year old male orange tabby spraying a nice piece of furniture in the house! He did it right in front of me. Backed up and quivered his tail and sprayed it!
He is neutered and goes in/out as he pleases through the dog door. I've seen him spray random bushes around the house and I was praying he wouldn't start doing it inside, but he just did!
I plan on taking him to the vet to see if there are any urinary problems but I seriously doubt there are. He is acting completely normal, eating, pooping, and has normal attitude etc. but what else can I do? I have a feeling it is territorial.
I'm guessing he is feeling threatened by some neighborhood cat because nothing inside has changed - no new pets or anything like that. There are no new stresses from what I can tell. I'm now worried about letting him in at all because the furniture is expensive and cat piss stinks something awful!! And I can't watch him 24-7 for spraying indoors!
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Is there a way to stop this without keeping him outside permanently? He is more of an outdoor cat and feels at home outside, so is this the best solution long-term?
