Keeping Cats from Peeing on Countertop?

I recently re-homed two Siamese cats. My sister-in-law passed away and left behind these two that are brother and sister. They are 11 years old and I flew them from Massachusetts to Florida. They have been extremely stressed out, but are starting to come around; it hasn't been a month yet. There are two other cats in the house. They for the most part get along however have developed a bad habit of peeing on the countertops in the kitchen. My sister has taken them to the vet and there are no issues; it is related to stress. I tried enzymes and have heard to try cayenne pepper. I wondered if anybody out there has any other ideas.

Ask your vet for anti anxiety medication. Your cats have been through a lot.

Do not use cayenne pepper. If they get it in their eyes they can be blinded. When I want to keep my cats off of something I put down a piece of aluminum foil. After a couple of days throw away the foil.

Poor kitties! Sending them prayers to relieve their stress. You are wonderful to take them in. It is hard to reach older animals new habits. You can try the foil trick to line the counters with foil slightly scrunched and flattened.


Some folks try double stick tape on card stock on the counter. Do not do that if they are long hair cats, as then it goes from a deterrent to a hazard sticking to their fur and pulling. Ouchies! Post back how it goes.
