We understand that cats mean no harm to you or your furniture. They are just following their instincts. That is why it is important to make a repellent that will not cause any damage to the animal.
The purpose of a cat repellent is to discourage destructive behavior and teach them that the area you are protecting is completely off limits.
What Do I Need to Make a Homemade Cat Repellent?
Citrus peels are safe and effective to repel cats. If you scatter some lemon and orange peels on your yard, they will keep any cats away and it is also great for your plants.
Another thing you can do is to mix a few drops of lemon grass oil with water in a sprayer bottle. You just need a small amount of oil so the smell becomes noticeable by the cats. Do not use large quantities of oil as there is no need to hurt the cat, you just want it to go away.
There are some other scents that can help you to deter cats away, such as: vinegar, tobacco, lavender and eucalyptus. Choose the one that you like the most for this purpose.
It is important that you never use cinnamon for your cat deterrent. Large doses of cinnamon can cause vomiting, diarrhea and respiratory inflammation to the cats.
If you would like to try a commercial cat repellent instead, we suggest you to try the Chewfix Bitter Spray. This is a product specially made to train your pets. It works specially well on dogs, cats and horses.
