What you want to do is look for the spots that are often targeted by your cat either for spraying or scratching. Spray those spots directly. The spray won’t damage those spots so don’t worry about using it.
Spray the spots regularly in order to keep your pets away from them for good.
Using the Pheromone Diffusers
