But there are other reasons too
Dr. Marks explains that urinary spraying can also be caused by mental states such as stress and anxiety. Things that can commonly trigger such a mental state with your cat could be an unfamiliar location; like moving into a new place or waiting for the cat to get used to your house right after adoption. A vet could help you identify and remove such triggers. In addition, you should ask your vet about pheromone treatment. Those relaxing compounds for pets are usually sold as wipes or diffusers and help reduce anxiety. Lastly, Dr. Marks recommends that you clean up the areas that have been sprayed with a special enzymatic cleaner. This cleaner will help you get rid of the smell as well as the bacteria that might have infected your kitty in the first place.
