Kitten sprayed

So we have a couple elevated cat perch beds on the wall in our kitchen that a 6’ high with steps. Yesterday our 5.5 month savannah kitten decided to claim it and sprayed up there. Our 6 year old savannah likes to eat his meals on that perch. The kitten is receiving treatment and I can’t have him neutered for about 6 more weeks. I cleaned the mess with enzyme cleaner and threw out the cat bed, just the wooden platform is left on that side. I bought a couple comfort zone multi cat pheromone diffusers. I also have a 2 y/o rescue cat. All 3 cats get along exceptionally well and always have. The kitten (Loki) is very confident, social and playful. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

That's a bit of a tricky one, I was going to suggest spraying the area with bitter lemon, cats don't seem to like citrus smells and tend to avoid the area which is no good if your 6yr old likes to sit there. So have to agree with Witchy, try giving the stud pants ago. Loki is at the age when spraying normally starts, so once his treatment /meds are finished I'd get him neutered as soon as you can.

I think that as others have said, you have a spraying male, it's hormonal driven so you can't as much dissuade him as exist until you can get him neutered. Invest in gallons of a good enzyme cleaner (Bubba's is a good budget choice). Loki is simply a young male asserting himself in his territory.... it sucks but if you can't get him neutered for some weeks, just hope things go smoothly to get him neutered in 6 weeks time?
