Sprays (“Bio Vax”, “Beaphar”, “Faithful friend – Antitsarap”, etc.) designed to discourage a cat from damaging furniture with claws, playing with wires, help in the wrong place. They are sprayed with distances of 15-30 cm from the “object of protection” every day until until the cat has no desire and interest in the forbidden activities. Sprays contain various substances, irritating upper respiratory tract and mucous membranes (capsaicin, methylnonyl ketone), however, in a dosage safe for animals and people. The price of such repellers ranges from about 100 to 600 rubles per 100 ml. Reviews are very different – to someone helps, but for someone the cat is completely indifferent to such sprays. In addition, many sprays have a rather pungent odor, which has to be inhaled not only to the cat, but also to the owner. Manufacturers of repellers of such a plan warn that for furniture, fabric and other surfaces means are not harmful, but not can be sprayed directly onto plants.

Also many cats don’t like the smell of alcohol, vinegar, perfume, chlorine – any sharp and strong odor can be unpleasant to the animal. But the disadvantage of such methods of control is rapid weathering, and not all owners will want to live in an apartment that smells like a mixture of vodka, vinegar and oranges.
