1) The repellent operates as a training tool and may take time and repeated applications to work. It may not work immediately on contact. Although it can instantly deter, do not expect to apply it once or even twice and experience instant or conclusive results. It is not a magical solution. You must stay at it and apply consistently and accordingly to the directions. Every cat and situation are different. It should be applied repeatedly and strategically until the cat forms a negative reaction to the spray or changes its’ bad behavior.
2) Cats are territorial and are frequently attracted to another animal’s scent. Cats communicate by smell and mark their territory in a variety of ways. Cats are creatures of habit and get accustomed to “going” in the same area, especially if it’s their marked territory. Remove any food sources and secure your trash. Minimize outdoor odors. Seal off any areas where cats can find shelter. Remove any fecal matter before treating affected areas (wear gloves). To increase the odds of cat’s not returning you should clean up, deodorize, and disinfect the area cats are marking. You should use an enzymatic cleaner to fully eliminate the scent. Do not use another scent to cover the existing odor. You can then use Cat MACE to establish control and act as a deterrent.
3) Have alternative areas, scratch posts, or toys that cats are allowed to scratch and or roam in. Cats love to scratch and chew. The idea is to turn a bad habit into a good one, by designating the right area for that behavior. When re-training your cat praise them when positive behavior is shown to help create that new habit.
Our Cat MACE granular repellent is the best choice to discourage cats from digging in garden beds or flower pots. The liquid concentrate is more for broadcast spraying to cover more area. With the concentrated sprays you can better control application frequency and strength.
Before spraying on objects such as furniture and painted surfaces, always test a small and unnoticeable area for staining acceptability. If the area is negatively affected by the spray, apply it onto a piece of cloth or towel, sit to let dry, and place it onto the area you want to be protected. Customers use this method to help protect couches, rugs, chairs, outdoor furniture cushions, and other delicate fabrics from cat damage. If anyone around is feeding cats, ask them to stop. The repellent may not work as well in repelling starving stray cats. This product can be used as a spray to defend yourself against cats. We are not responsible for injury or damage, caused directly or indirectly by product use.
Stray cats can bring with them a variety of harmful diseases such as feline leukemia, rabies, parvovirus, and feline HIV. Most cats are never vaccinated and travel in small groups, spreading diseases with ease. Not to mention the diseases caused by potential fleas, ticks, and worms they may be infested with. Cats are also known for marking their territory with urine which can kill plants leading to unsightly brown spots around your yard. Their urine can destroy appliances, generators, furniture, and siding, and lead to rust. Their excrement does not fertilize the soil and can be extremely toxic.
It is important to avoid encountering their poop, as it may transit a toxic Toxoplasma gondii parasite. This can be transferred to humans through vegetables and through direct contact. This is a serious health concern for pregnant women.
