Toby peeing on Christmas tree!

Toby has started really spraying the Christmas tree. He is sooooo naughty!

Why is he doing this? He does have a tendency to fake spray everywhere but he is actually peeing on the tree.

And, yep, he is neutered.

Tom cats, eh?

Any suggestions?

Sorry. No suggestions. Just your thread title made me giggle. Actually, is it a real tree? Maybe something else sprayed on the tree before you bought it?

Are you sure Toby's name wasn't Scrooge? Perhaps he's saying 'Bah-humbug!'

Ugh, sorry about your tree. I'd discard it though...there is probably no way to get the smell out and he'll just continue doing it if he smells it..

If Toby does the same as my Stepmom's female cat, it is standing up in the spraying position, with tail upright and vibrating, but no actual pee coming out. I used to always wonder if she was trying to mark with pheromones or something, before I learned what spraying was.

That Toby...he's just plain trouble!

I would spray the tree with Nature's Miracle and let it air dry. Then maybe spray it with Feliway or one if the sprays that's supposed to keep cats away or some orange or lemon extract.

Maggie fake sprays too and oddly enough it appears it's her way of saying good morning. She usually only does it in the morning when I get out of bed. She does it to my father when he's here too....again, right when he gets up. I call it Squirmy Butt. Weird cat!

He's just marking his territory - any gift placed under the tree is his!

Oh, do you guys call him Father Christmas instead of Santa Claus?
That's awesome, we call him Papa Noel too

Just tell Toby if he keeps peeing on the tree, Papa Noel will bring him flowery stud pants like Rocket's!
