The blend of essential oils in Aristopet No Scratch Spray for Cats has a mild odour that is pleasant to us but offensive to our feline friends. This in turn, will discourage your cat from scratching any surface that the spray is present on. Keep in mind that scratching and clawing is a natural behaviour for cats that should be encouraged, in the appropriate areas. Aristopet No Scratch Spray for Cats keeps all of your furniture and carpet safe from this instinct and a cat scratching post creates a safe space for them to explore it. The use of Aristopet Catnip Spray on your scratching post can also help attract the cat to the correct area.
