not specialists. They have not had proper training on understanding the underlying causes of why cats spray. My vet gave me a few suggestions which I immediately tried. I was completely frustrated when they did not work. Please realize it's not your fault that your cat won't use the litter box. If even a vet doesn't understand cat spray, there is almost zero chance that a person without the right training could figure this out.
It wasn't until that fateful meeting with my friend that I began to see things differently. She said Toby was trying to "talk" to me when he was spraying. Dawn added "when it comes to using the potty in the right place, it's the same deal with cats and human children." She had seen countless toddlers have accidents after they were fully potty trained. She taught parents that the accidents were a form of communication and you had to understand the underlying cause and fix it. Armed with this new information, I began to see that Toby was trying to tell me something whenever he refused to use the litter box.
The more I thought about it, Toby's spraying was actually beneficial. Toby still was trying to communicate and get me to understand. What if, he had given up and had become depressed? At least I had a way to help Toby get back to his happy self. Without the cat spray, I would have never known.
Research shows that highly intelligent cats spray the most. These cats are amazing and are often the most misunderstood. Cats that try to communicate when something is wrong should be celebrated not vilified. It breaks my heart the number of cats who are re-homed or euthanized, when all these cats were trying to do was communicate their wants, needs, and desires.
What if more cat parents had access to an approach that would allow them to help their cat in their time of need? I decided I had to do something, so I created a program that would allow you to completely understand the root cause of cat spraying so that you can address it. The wonderful thing is it didn't just work for me, it works for all kinds of people, just check out what some of my students are saying below....
