    Default Male neighbor cat spraying our front door area.. please help



    <font size="3" color="black" face="Verdana">12.0pt;font-family:Verdana;color:windowtext;">We have a neighbor’s
    male cat spraying our flower beds. With it getting warm outside, the
    smell is getting really bad and it hits guest when they walk up the sidewalk
    and at the front door. I googled and found some suggestions…:
    <font size="3" color="black" face="Verdana">12.0pt;font-family:Verdana;color:windowtext;">
    “Citronella works best for cats as well as
    citrus scents such as orange or lemon (primarily towards cats), cayenne pepper,
    coffee grounds, pipe tobacco, lavender oil, lemon grass oil, citronella oil,
    peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil, and mustard oil”

    <font size="3" color="black" face="Verdana">Has anyone had any luck with
    anything specific? When they say coffee grounds, would this be used from
    the coffee maker or new from the can? I don’t know how I would put
    oil in the weeds, just spray it on or pour it over the area?
    <font size="3" color="black" face="Verdana">
    <font size="3" color="black" face="Verdana">Our flower bed is a large
    overgrown weed pit that I have not had time to get to. I don’t know
    the first thing about flowers so I am not sure what all the other suggestions
    are, but if it works, I can find it and learn how to plant it. It is
    really embarrassing to have people come up and hold their noses until we can

    let them in.
    <font size="3" color="black" face="Verdana">

    You can try the citronella and citrus they work depending on the particular

    cats sensitivity. You can also get dried predator urine (like fox or coyote) and

    use that, you can't smell it when you put it out but they can.

    Melissa, I have had that same problem. Caused alot of trouble with our neighbors. I went to Petco and they have a spay for the outdoors. The only problem is you have to spay it everyday around your yard to keep the cat out. I can't remember the name of it but if you ask them they will help. Also, I hadtwo empty spray bottles. One had ammonia and the other had colored dye. ( the cat was white). Every time the cat came in myyard, I sprayed him with the ammonia. When he came back the again, I spayed him with the dye. It all washed out of the cat but the owners had to keep washing him because he smelled and kept getting the wet dye on their stuff. Now before anyone says anything, I do have two female cats (they are fixed), 1 male dog and two fancy rats. I love animals but owners need to be responsible for their animals. Also, try bleach to help get the smell gone from your front door
    etc. Marian

    <FONT face="Amphion" size="4">When I was the Activity Director at a nursing home that had pets, we used to use the cayenne pepper to keep the cats out of the indoor plants. We just sprinkled it on...probably every couple of weeks. It did work. Not sure how that would work outside, but would be worth a try! Good luck!!

    I have had luck with mothballs, but do not
    put them out if you have pets or young children that might eat them.

    Try filling empty plastic gallon milk or water jugs with water and sit

    several where you don't want the cats. Not sure why it works but it

    does. Often times once you break the cats habit you can remove the

    bottles - if they come back try hiding the bottles behind plants. I've

    seen people put them every 3 feet around the front yard! I've only

    tried in side yard and it worked. Karen

    <font size="3" face="Arial">12.0pt;font-family:Arial;">I live on the edge of a national forest and we have a huge
    problem with mountain lions and coyotes, so we don’t have a problem with
    cats running around, all cats and small pets HAVE to be indoors if you want
    them to live. What I’ve found with my cat is that just plain water in a
    squirt gun does the trick, they hate getting wet (well most cats) and it
    surprises them.
