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.

Sprinkle pepper around the area. The cats will be bothered by their spicy paws at grooming time, and, with habitual application, will learn that your property is the culprit. You can temporarily keep them from spending time in a certain area by sprinkling plenty of pepper around.


Sprinkle pepper under your porch, in your shed, on your back patio, or wherever you see cats playing or napping.
Pepper works on grass, too, but you will have to reapply it frequently, especially after heavy rains.
