Why your cat wants to mark her territory

Your feline friend spends time trying to make sure others know which areas he considers to be his own. Why does he feel the need to mark his territory?

Your pet has become very fond of your living space and the items within it. This is where she considers her home to be, and this means a lot to her. She still retains some instincts from her wild ancestors, and marking this area helps her feel more secure in the fact that other animals will be more likely to steer clear of it as she has already claimed it for her own. She wants to keep her home, and this is one way she tries to do so. This is why she tries to leave behind both visual and scent markers to alert others that they have stepped into her territory. Your local Brandon, FL vet clinic can offer additional advice.
