Cat Marking on Furinture - Behavior of Cats

Cats will mark their territory by spraying urine onto the sofa, a wall, your favorite chair or even the pillow on your bed.  Cats usually do this when they feel anxious, stress, or their litter box needs cleaning.  

Bad behavior is usually the result of something changing in the cat home and the kitty needs to get their humans attention.  So they will display bad behavior; snarl, hiss, bite, scratch, and mark your favorite chair. 

Why Cats Mark - Spray


There is a reason why cats display bad behavior and the pet owner must determine why.  Is it lifestyle, a new kitten, a new baby, a new arrangement of furniture, or is you kitty telling you that they are sick?

Cats do not like change.  

Some cats are okay with minor changes however this is not the case when it comes to their sleeping routine.  If I lay a finger on the kitty bed I will hear a hiss from across the room. If I launder the kitty bed, then I have a a kitty with an attitude.   

My 14 year old Maine Coon cat will go from a sweet kitty to a cat who is ready to rumble to defend her turf. She will dare the cat and dog to cross her imaginary line and if they do, then they will cross a kitty with bad behavior. 


When a cat displays bad behavior it is usually due to territory or a change in their routine.  The cat will react by becoming anxious or stressed and they will hide in the closet, refuse to use the litter box, mark their territory, hiss, snarl, show off their claws, and be aggressive with the other humans, cats or the dogs.
