    I live in a ground floor flat. My cat keeps walking up the steps for a smell but has just been inside their house and was chased out. They have a baby so its understandable they don't want (in their home a strange unkown cat) who could do harm to their baby or they could be allergic to them. Any way what is best thing I could put down to stop them walking up the steps? I've seen cat repellent which stop them from marking their cent. Any ideas please before upstairs get really annoyed.

    They are supposed to hate citrus smells so that might be worth a try or failing that give your neighbour a water pistol and ask them if they wouldnt mind using it if your cat is trying to get in, it might make it unpleasant enough for your cat not to want to visit them again.

    My next door neighbors use to hose my cat to stop him peeing..by the end of it he'd lay on the fence and wait for it :lol:

    Can't recommend anything myself but good luck :thumbup:

    try some of the sprays and things... but i would also suggest you buy them a water pistol to give your cat a harmless (but unpleasant - to the cat) blast of water which should deterr him from venturing up there again.

    A water pistol or any clean chemical free squeezy bottle should do the trick,most cats don't like it,but at least as everyone else says they are harmless:)
