The Internet is awash with references to people using unusual animal urine and essential oils as repellents for rats and rodents. Cat urine and wolf urine are often mentioned. The logic is that the odour makes the rat think there is a predator in the area and they will leave.
Essential oils, in particular mint, are also used to keep rats away. They don't like the strong smell and will leave according to many. Unfortunately, for every tale of these remedies working there are two tales of woe. In particular, some claim that the odours might keep rats away but they will not encourage them to leave if they are already resident in the area. It may be very difficult to tell if the odour is repelling them or whether they simply are not interested in the area.
In either case, the presence of the smell may deter the rodents for a while, until they realise that there is no true threat. Rats are highly intelligent and even if there is the smell of a cat in the area they may soon realise that there isn't one there.
As well as this, the odours will fade with time and need repeated replenishment. They are only really suitable for use outdoors as the smell of cat's urine is not usually something most people want in their homes.
