Cats are naturally curious, so they’ll try to investigate every nook and cranny available to them. As a part of their exploration, they’ll also mark, chew and scratch as they become comfortable with their surroundings. These natural behaviors can often result in trouble for both pet and owner, especially if the cat discovers off limits and dangerous items and areas around the home. That’s where cat deterrent and repellent sprays come in handy. The difference between the two is that deterrents stop an unwanted behavior, while cat repellents keep them away from the sprayed area. The good news is that all of these products feature safe, gentle and effective ingredients, so you can communicate with your cat without punishing them as they learn house rules.

As the name suggests, anti-marking deterrent sprays keep cats from marking their territory.
