Pet Peeves: Kitty Confuses Chair For Litterbox!

Q: My kitty keeps peeing on a chair in my living room. At first I wasn't sure, but I know that stench all too well and several times it's still been damp to the touch when I get home from work. I don't want this problem to spread so how do I save my couch and other chairs?

A: Most cats hate citrusy smells – similar to keeping them away from your plants with lemon halves, sprays, or peel shavings, soak a cotton ball with lemon juice and place it on that chair, near the spot where your cat continues to relieve herself.

Another way to keep felines off furniture is aluminum foil – cats typically don't like the sound nor feeling under their paws and should stop jumping up once you put it there. In fact, you shouldn't have to do this forever (that could get annoying when you want to plop down to watch TV and again before you go to bed) as kitties easily recall such things.
