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.

The best deterrent I have found is mothballs. Cats, particularly the tom cats who do most of the spraying, hate the smell.
