    New spraying behavior can also signal urinary tract infection. A vet check for UTI is a good idea.... Best regards.... Beth Polstra Conyers Cat Georgia, USA

      Hello,

      Suddenly our male cat has started spraying. He's an indoor cat and
      we have another male cat. Both are nuetered and have lived together
      for years. Could he be jealous of our other cat when we show him
      (The other cat) attention?

        I just had another thought... there is a litter that attracts cats to the
        litter box and helps with retraining. It's Dr. Elsey's Cat Attract litter. I
        and several others have had great success with this. I used it for a month
        and then was able to discontinue it. I wonder if this litter would help with
        spraying behavior? Has anyone on the list used Cat Attract for this type
        behavior?

        absolutely - it's tough and apparently you didn't neuter early - I'm in
        the same boat. Good luck.

          I haven't had him checked, but I do not think it is a urinary tract
          infection. He only does this about once a week, not constantly, and
          he will still go in the litter box.

          There has been another cat hanging around outside the house, it is
          entirely possible that that's what's wrong. He does seem to like the
          room where he stray hangs around outside alot.

          Now, how do I discourage him?

              Feliway is a synthetic version of the cheek-marking pheromone
              that cats use to mark their territory in a 'friendly' manner,
              instead of a 'challenging' manner. (they really aren't rubbing
              against you because it feels good - nor so much that they 'love'
              you, but that they are marking you as belonging to them, or the
              colony that they belong to. Be glad - I've heard of some cats
              that spray their people!)

              You can get it on-line, or at most pet-supply stores. There's
              now a 'plug-in' version, rather like a Glade Plug-In. I'm using
              one now - seems to be working okay - but I buy it by the 6-pack
              because of the neighbor's un-neutered cats. Also - your vet might
              have it - and you can order it on-line (I found a sale at one on-line
              pet supply place where it cost about half-price, so I ordered the
              6-pack mentioned above).

              Rescue Remedy is a Bach Flower compound that is specific to
              calming. If you have a PetCo near you - there's a better option
              (cheaper, at least) called "Good Cat", by Nala Berry Laboratories.

              With both the above - you add it to the water for them to drink.
              It's a homeopathic compound.

              > infection. He only does this about once a week, not constantly, and

              Sounds like territory marking, not FUS - but if you can, do get
              it checked anyway, just to be sure.

              > There has been another cat hanging around outside the house, it is
              > entirely possible that that's what's wrong. He does seem to like the
              > room where he stray hangs around outside alot.

              Okay - this sounds like what is happening - your guy is just marking
              his territory - it's probable that the other cat has been marking
              the *outside* of your house.

              > Now, how do I discourage him?

              If you find the Feliway - put it *outside* as well as inside (it
              comes in a spray bottle - expensive, $20-40/bottle - but well worth
              it). This time of year (if you're in a winter area), it may get
              washed off easily, but I'd re-do it twice a day for at least a
              month *any*way. Inside and out.

              Hopefully - it will convince the *outside* cat that the inside one
              doesn't need defending against - which should help the inside
              situation a lot!
