Here we will show you how can you make a natural homemade cat repellent spray with a couple of items that you probably already have in your kitchen as you read this.
Cats have a good sense of smell and we are going to take advantage of this to keep them away from our furniture, gardens or just any area.
The best thing about this natural homemade spray is that it does not harm the cats at all. They just are disgusted by the smell and prefer to stay away from that place. Cats can be beautiful and adorable pets to have in your house. However they may also be a latent danger for some of the furniture or maybe you don’t want them in certain room of your house.
Homemade Cat Repellent – Furniture Spray
This is the spray that we recommend you to use on the inside. The ingredients of this mixture are natural and also produce a pleasant smell for people. You are going to need:
- Sprayer Bottle.
- Lemon Oil.
- Eucalyptus Oil.
You only need to mix 1 liter water, 15 drops lemon oil and 25 drops of eucalyptus oil. Then just shake the bottle and you are done. Your repellent spray is ready to be used.
As you probably read before, the oils used in this project are also really effective to make a homemade fly repellent.
Spray the area or pieces of furniture that you want to protect from the cats. Never spray directly to the animal, as we stated before, they find the smell extremely unpleasant.
Homemade Cat Repellent – Garden Spray
If you want to protect your garden, yard or trash cans from the cats then this is your best choice. You are just going to need black pepper and hot water.
This cat repellent is far stronger than the previous one but the smell of the pepper is not pleasant for us, humans, or to have inside a clean house. This is why this one is meant to be used in the outside or in a well ventilated area.
To make this powerful repellent mix 2tsp of fresh black pepper in hot or boiling water. Once the mix has cooled, pour it in your sprayer bottle and proceed to protect your garden from the cats.
In order to get the best possible results with any of the two homemade cat repellents, spray the area you want to protect at least once every other day and daily during a hot season. The cats will eventually learn just to stay away from your place after a while.
