Making a homemade cat peeing deterrent might just be the best solution to make your furry little friend stop urinating your stuff. While not every natural remedy works for all types of cats, it’s always a good idea to have a bit of experiment. From all the home remedies, vinegar and citrus are two of the best ingredients to make natural pee repellents for cats. But first, you will need to thoroughly clean the cat urine off the floor before applying those solutions.
Vinegar Cat Pee Repellent Spray
This is one of the best methods that every cat owner must try in order to remove urine odor or even ward off your cat from peeing a specific area at your home. All you need to prepare are some vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, water, and a spray bottle. These ingredients are easy to obtain and, of course, very affordable. You simply need to mix water and vinegar with a ratio of 3:1 in a spray bottle. Spray the liquid on the affected area and around it. Let it sit for several minutes.
After a few minutes, use paper towels to wipe off the cat pee deterrent spray until the floor is utterly dry. You may also use a fan to let it dry more quickly. Sprinkle some baking soda all over the area once the floor is thoroughly dry. To remove urine odor and prevent your cat from peeing in the same area again, pour hydrogen peroxide and any type of dish soap you have at home all over the baking soda. Then, scrub the floor with a brush and wipe off the excess using paper towels.
Citrus Cat Pee Repellent Spray
While this cat peeing deterrent might not be able to entirely remove the cat’s urine odor, it works really well at keeping the cat from peeing the place where they shouldn’t. It’s because felines are the kind of animals that dislike the pungent smell of citrus. All you need to prepare are just two cups of water and citrus peels for about one cup (it could be orange, tangerine, or lemon peels).
First, boil the water and add the citrus peels and let it simmer for around 20 minutes. Transfer the liquid into a spray bottle once it’s cold. Add a dollop of dish soap and two teaspoons of lemon juice. Shake it well and spray this homemade cat peeing deterrent on the walls, furniture, and any part of the floor where you don’t want your cat to pee on it.
