Cats/cat urine

Question
How can I keep my cats from urinating on the garage floor in the same place? The litter box is only 3 feet away and they still choose to do their business on the cement floor!

Answer
Hi
there must be some residual smell from the previous urine. this will encourage them to use the area again.

Please see my page about cleaning urine here
/cat-urine-cleaner.html

Also cats need to have their own litter trays, this may be why one of them started to urinate on the floor in the first place. the smell of the other cats urine will deter them from using a single tray.

the trays should not be placed to close to each other.

best wishes Kate
