What products should I buy for my situation?

Here we will tell you about using our products for a variety of situations, including cats who are not using their litter boxes. We'll discuss litter box aversion, calming cats in general, introducing new cats to the household and more.

Cat Faeries behaviorist gets asked questions all the time, but unfortunately we do not have the time to answer all of your questions via email so we have written up a guide to help you figure out what to order for your situation. We also thought you might like an idea of how long it could take to correct a problem. Keep in mind each situation is unique. There are no rules or guarantees about how long it will take to solve a behavior problem. We aren't telling you what to buy we are offering suggestions based on our years of experience and customer feedback.

If after you've read this section you find that you have specific questions we are happy to help you. Just tell us you read this page so we know not to repeat something you already learned.

Why do cats pee outside of the box?

Cats do not wake up one day and decide to be naughty and make you miserable and drenched in cat pee! There is ALWAYS a trigger or two (perhaps more) for this problem. It could be medical, so before you do anything have your vet test the cat's bladder, kidneys, thyroid, blood sugar, and arthritis. Cats can't tap you on the shoulder or send a text message to inform you that they don't feel well. Instead they might urinate or poop on something in the house to get your attention.

But most likely it is stress - something is bothersome or annoying to the cat. Common annoyances our our indoor cats are: ferals cats, uninvited neighbor's cats,birds and squirrels, mice in the house, dirty litter boxes, or not using the same litter consistently. Cats can't tell us with words, only actions. Product alone may not solve the problems, so if you don't remove or correct the triggers you are fighting an uphill battle.

Experience and customer feedback tells us that the those who use it all get the fastest and most permanent results:

1) Convivial House Cat spray

3) At least one of our Flower Essences for Cats formulas. The most popular is Multi Cat Household, followed by (and often rotated with) Territorial Rescue.

4) Anti Icky Poo to clean and remove cat urine.

This is a Quick Summary of our Products:

Anti Icky Poo more info

This product is a must for removing traces of urine odor, urine proteins, and urine gases. It is the best thing we know for removing traces and odors of cat urine. If you are using other brands you know they are failing miserably! If you are using bleach it won't work and it's toxic. Vinegar and water is fine to quickly blot up the liquid but it will do nothing to permanently remove the urine and it's smells (which are proteins and gases) and because of that your cat will return to that location and do it all over again.

Peeing Outside The Box and/or Spraying

We think of this problem in three groups and classify them as:
Mild Case - Moderate Case - Severe Case

Mild Case
  • If only one cat is urinating or spraying
  • If the urine or spraying problem began less than 3 months ago
  • If this happens sporadically or several times a week, or occasionally
  • If there is cat urine in only one room
  • If there is cat urine in one favorite spot, maybe two spots in that room
  • If cat(s) use their litter boxes 95% of the time
  • There is occasional fighting

Solving this problem could take about 2 or 3 months (sometimes longer) of diligent and daily product usage. You may need to use these products "as needed" longer or indefinitely for reinforcement. Most cats will stop, other cats won't stop completely, but the problem is usually lessened so its a rare occurrence and most people feel they can live with that.

Convivial House Cat spray is used to spot treat the areas where you have found urine. You'll use 1 to 2 times a day for 6 to 8 weeks. You don't need a lot of it, no more than 1 or 2 quirts applied to a 7 inch soiled spot. You do need faithful and consistent usage of it.

When you order you'll receive our 4 page handout which will teach you the Cat Faeries Here and There Convivial Technique which you'll use daily.

We suggest 2 bottles to start with if its a new problem, 4 if it's an old problem and involves several cats.

Flower Essences put in cat's food and water on a daily basis will boost the effectiveness of Convivial House Cat. Our two best formulas for the urination problem and harmonizing cats are Multi Cat Household, and Territorial Rescue. Customers often get both formulas and rotate them, but generally one of the formulas will be all that's needed for a mild case. See the Flower Essences page for more detail and other formulas that could help your cats. Instructional handout will come with your order.

Anti Icky Poo used on every surface that was soiled with urine.

When the situation is "looking good" you might not need to use the products again or you might need them as needed or occasionally for reinforcement. You might need to use Convivial House Cat spray a few times a week. Many of our customers keep a 1/4 bottle of Convivial House Cat on hand in case they need it while others use their spray a few times a week to maintain a peaceful home. Most cats enjoy the flower essences as a forever-thing.

Moderate Case
  • If one or two cats are urinating or spraying or both
  • If the urine or spraying problem began 3 to 12 months ago
  • If this happens several times a week, sometimes daily
  • If there is cat urine in mostly one room, perhaps one other room
  • If there is cat urine in 3 - 5 places per room
  • If cat(s) generally use litter boxes
  • There is fighting which happens several times a week

Solving this problem could take any where from 2 to 6 months (sometimes longer) of diligent daily product usage. Once that period of faithful usage is over may need to use products "as needed" indefinitely. Please note that most cats do stop, but sometimes a cat won't stop completely. In that case the problem is usually lessened so that its a very rare occurrence and most people feel they can live with that.

You could be "in for the long haul" but we have seen miraculous things happen in these tough cases, and they can even happen quickly. Other times it's a slow process. Count on using the products for at least 4 or 5 months on a daily basis.

Fighting Felines

If you have more than one cat the odds are there will be the occasional hissy fit. These generally happen once or twice a week when one cat insults another, tries to crowd another cat out of a sunny spot on the floor, or feels the other is getting more attention, etc. This is all quite normal. But when there is screaming, wild hissing, swatting and biting, and it happens nearly daily then we have Fighting Felines who need some calming down.

Aggressive Cats

Some cats are naturally crabby and bossy which can lead to aloofness, hissing at the other cats, and unprovoked fighting. Sometimes these cats don't even like some of their human housemates. Let's chill out a cranky kitty. Make sure that the cat is healthy and pain free. Illness and even certain medications can effect a cat's personality and behavior. Ask your vet about medication.

Solving the problem is most likely going to be an ongoing thing. If you've got an alpha cat who takes that job VERY seriously he/she will mostly likely always be Top Cat and rule with an iron paw! But let's mellow kitty out who will ultimately be happier not always being in charge!

Convivial House Cat is probably your best bet. Its easy for you to use and its purpose is for calming. Daily usage through out the house focusing on the places the cats spend most of their time, like beds and sunbeams.

Cats Scratching on Furniture and Rugs

Solving this problem is tricky. Cats often can't resist a sofa covered in a nice textured fabric. But you can help by trimming the cat's nails about every 10 - 14 days. Also provide a "cat condo" that's taller than 4 feet so that it won't tip over. Cats love condos with tiers for resting and playing. Most cats enjoy a mix of carpet and sisal.

Spray daily for a few weeks to see if your cat responds and stops scratching. You may need to use the spray several times a week for reinforcement. Convivial House Cat spray is more effective on "vertical scratching" than on "horizontal scratching (rugs).
