    • Speak to your vet about the problems you are having. If you have a male cat then the problem might be simply solved. If your male cat has not been neutered then he might simply be spraying inside your home to try and mark his territory. It is worth looking into as it might reduce or eliminate the problem completely.

    • If your cat urinates inside the house to not get angry and punish him. If you shout at a cat it will not understand you and often urinate as a result of anxiety and nerves. You will find that the problem escalates and there will be more urination than ever so remember to never shout at your cat.

If you have blinds put up or even curtains then your cat will not see any other cats outside; this could make your cat feel more secure in the home and stop the cat urinating. If you do not want to put up curtains then try moving any furniture away from windows so your cat cannot sit on it and watch other cats around his house.
