Ihre Katze Stubenrein bekommen - so funktioniert es!

Getting your cat house trained - this is how it works!

If your cat has ever peed or marked in your home, you know how difficult it can be to remove these strong smells from carpets or furniture.

Why does my cat come into the apartment?

First, determine whether your cat is marking or urinating. You can tell by the posture your cat takes when marking. Cats urinate by squatting on horizontal surfaces, leaving a larger puddle of urine. When your cat marks, he stands up, raises his tail, and extends it toward a surface. In case you don't catch your cat in the act, you should know that cats generally mark on vertical surfaces, such as the wall, and urinate on horizontal surfaces, such as the floor.

Why do cats pee outside the litter box?

The answer to the question of why cats pee in the apartment is usually quite simple. In most cases, male and female cats (usually the unneutered ones) mark to communicate and mark their territory. If your cat does his business outside of the litter box, it is often due to a behavioral or medical problem. If your cat is urinating outside of the litter box, this behavior could be due to stress, urinary tract infections, litter box problems, and more. Cats are very sensitive to changes in their environment, which can cause them to urinate or mark inappropriately. Minor and major environmental changes can affect your cat, such as moving to a new home, adopting a different pet, or switching to a new litter box or type of litter. Stress can be a trigger for your cat to pee in the apartment. When a cat feels anxious, frightened or threatened, marking is a natural reaction. Trigger can e.g. the lack of a safe place to relax.

What to do if the cat becomes unclean?

Because cats are territorial, the smell of other animals' old urine can trigger a negative reaction. Old scratching posts or moving into a house where the previous owners had a cat can lead to territorial markings. It is also important to keep the litter box clean as cats do not like to use dirty litter boxes. With the KatzenRobo you no longer have to constantly clean your cat litter box. This self-cleaning, automatic litter box filters dirty litter into a separate bag once your cat is no longer using the litter box. This means your fluffy four-legged friend always has a fresh and cleaned litter box available.

If the litter box is in a place where your cat feels uncomfortable, such as a noisy place in the home, this may cause him to look for other places to do his business. If you notice that your cat always pees in the same place outside of the litter box, try moving the litter box to that location.

How do I stop my cat from peeing in the house? 

If your cat is urinating or marking in your home, there are some steps you can take to combat the problem. Start by identifying the reason your cat is urinating in the home. Try to solve the problem with simple means, e.g. by thoroughly cleaning the house, purchasing a new, self-cleaning litter box, or moving the litter box to a different location.

In addition to your cat's inappropriate urination, look out for other symptoms such as blood in the urine, excessive drinking, lethargy, or even aggression. If these symptoms or other unusual signs occur, you should contact your veterinarian. If necessary, castration can also help to stop the cat from marking.

Activity and stimulation

Cats that are not mentally and physically stimulated are more likely to develop behavioral problems. Give your cat space so that it can let its energy flow freely. Get a scratching post or other toys for your cat.

privacy

Cats are very private animals, so their litter box should be in a quiet and safe place. Low-traffic areas are a good place for the litter box. Observe your cat to see if he has a preferred spot for privacy.

Training spray for your cat

The cat litter training spray from CatRobo can help you and your cat get used to or get used to the CatRobo. The scent, which is particularly attractive to cats, encourages cats to urinate where the spray is sprayed.

Ich habe 3 Katzenbabys, die nicht (wie alle anderen Katzen ) im Garten ihr Geschäft verrichten. Ständig pinkeln sie unter das Bett etc.. Obwohl ich den Geruch sofort entferne und die Babys im Garten spielen, kommen sie zum Pinkeln in die Wohnung. Wie kann ich ihnen das abgewöhnen?
