Spraying urine is one waycats mark their territory. But it can also be a reactionto a stressful situation, and become a problemif it happens inside your home. First, visit your vetto check there are no underlying health reasonsfor this change in behaviour, like a urinary tract infection. If not, then considerany changes to your home, especially in litterbox useor location.
Has there been a recent addition,such as a new pet or baby? Or has your routine altered? All cats are creatures of habit, and even a slight variationcan cause them anxiety. Using Feliway Classicwith its comforting pheromone can help reduce the stressand prevent unwanted spraying. Clean any spray markingsas soon as possible. When the area is dry, useFeliway Classic Spray once a day
until your catstops marking the spot. Never spray your cat,and wait for 15 minutes before allowing itnear the sprayed area. If your cat is sprayingseveral areas in your home, plug a Feliway Diffuserin the room it frequents the most to help reinforce feelingsof calm and reassurance, so you can be happy together..

rests on its foundation. You want to keepit in good sound structure. It takes a lot of wear and tear, doesn’t it? Yes it sure does. Yeah. We’re looking at some pictures right now of some problems that you found when going onsite. Ok. What you’re looking at is you know most common signs are where the floorand wall meet, you’ll have some moisture come in. You might get a musty smell. That’s asign there is mold in the foundation from water standing in and around it. And that’s trouble. Absolutely. Not only you know twenty five years ago when we began, our objective was to take the water outof the basement. It’s so much more today.
It’s actually health, structure of your home,and replacement of your property, and also heat loss through cracks in yourfoundation. Yeah. You mentioned twenty five years. You have been helping homeowners withthese types of problems for quite some time now. Yes. My brother and I actually started asentrylevel installers back in ninety one, worked our way up, and actually now we own the company.

I have to ask you Rob,
what makes EverDry different from other businesses that do the same thing, waterproofing? Well a lot ofcompanies actually go in, and their objective is to get the water out. We come inand let you know why we need to get the water out. It’s for health. It’s for structure. It’s for replacement of your property. Yeah.Protecting all those things that you treasure. Yes. Yes and you know over time it weakens the foundation, but I mean it canget to a point where it’s cracking or bowing, but the worst thing is whenwater enters your foundation, it’s already
contaminated so you want to look out forhealth concerns. If you have any allergies, the mold, the musty smells, breathing thatcontaminated air can really put a hindrance on your family’s health.
