    Cats have a way of getting into things they’re not supposed to and can leave stains and scratch marks—but a reliable cat repellent can do the trick and teach a lasting lesson. There are two primary types of repellents: scent-based sprays and physical deterrents. Scent-based sprays are a tried and tested method, relying on citrus smells or pheromones to keep cats away from the desired area. Physical deterrents use noise or water to scare cats away. Some options are handheld, requiring you to spray the area or your cat, though these can lead to your cat becoming afraid of you. Others are motion-sensing, teaching your cats even when you aren’t home.
