There is a product called Indoor No. It's a spray and can probably be found in pet stores. Also, I've read that citrus works well.

Citrus does not deter cats I put peels everywhere and they poop right next to it I bought some plastic runners and on the bottom side there are spikes won't cut them they don't like the feel of them on their paws . You can buy it by the foot at a home and garden store home depot Lowe's hope this helps

I have also heard that orange peels will work, but I haven't tried them. I think you will be best served by buying a cat repellent from a garden or pet store. You have to reapply them after a rain usually. Do not use mothballs. They are terribly toxic, &smell much worse than the cat problem. I have had problems with stray cats spraying my house in winter, and I have splashed that area with lemon scented Mr. Clean. This seemed to deter them, and solved the cleaning problem as well.

How can I discourage stray neighborhood cats from "scenting" my entryway? Their urine smell is gagging me. I'm not home to spritz as they visit.

I don't know if it will work with cats but it does work for other critters: go to a loacl dog grooming lace and ask for the cut dog hair. Spread them around the area you want to keep the cats away from and it may do the trick. My dad does that to keep rabbits and other wild life from eating his garden before he can benefit from it.

I have had good luck discouraging this sort of behavior by splashing full strength lemon scented Mr Clean on the sprayed areas. Cats do not like a citrus smell, and this has the added benefit of cleaning the area as well.
