Can anyone offer suggestions on how I can stop my cat from spraying inside my apartment? Putting him outside during the day while I worked seemed to curve his tendency to spray indoors. Now, by law, I am required to keep him in so I've got to get a handle on the problem.
Talked to my vet yesterday and she mentioned some kind of spray she would look into that may help calm him down. I'm somewhat skeptical about it, but willing to try just about anything.
hello, i am a cat peson just i always try to go for the females but if i do get to have a male cat i would get him fixed. i have heard this helps with the spraying too. we recently moved into a house that had dogs in it with the prior owners and we got this pet spray for odors from lowes it's called petx it's really awesome stuff too it really works. sorry i couldn't have been more help to you. good luck hope you have a blessed day
It is somewhat expensive, and is available several ways. I would suggest buying a spray -roughly 20.00 US, and applying it daily to problem areas like doorways and corners. Another way is to use the plug-in diffusers, which are more expensive but do the job continuously.
Ok, sorry if this is going to offend you, but to me neutering animals is the most disgusting, savage, retarded thing. If you think that crippling animal in order to be more convenient for you is fine then I really have to question you. And yes neutering is crippling and slaughtering - how would you feel if someone would do that to you or your kid?
Yes, they do. Which in my opinion is crazy. Why would I mess up my body like that? Because it's more convenient? Of course in the society in which wide masses are constantly zombified and lobotomized by media sticking bags of liquid in your breast and fixing yourself has become almost desirable...
Lets see which is best, get your animal fixed or continue to overpopulate the streets with more stray and wild cats half of which die from starvation. Where I live there are so many cats running wild the animal shelter has ran out of traps, they also require all animals to be fixed before leaving.
huh? pat? Do you mean me getting fixed? Well, I dont need any more kids that I cannot financially support. Do you wanna support them. I could have more for the welfare system and no I have never collected welfare but I dont ever want to either..
So did I. I know the 'spray' is urine and nothing more sinister, but I never thought a neutered Tomcat sprayed! Learn somethng new everyday. Oh well, looks like you might be stuck with the shop bought stuff.
Neutered cats absolutely do spray, especially if they were not fixed as early as possible. The spray is a highly concentrated form of their urine and is used to establish territory. Ctas can feel that their territory for a variety of reasons, some of which are not so obvious.
I have another cat and a dog. I was thinking that maybe he was marking his territory because of them, then I remembered he was exhibiting this same behavior even when it was only him and I? Don't know....
No, I ment your animal, your pet. The argument you made about shelters makes sense, but does not support the fact that you take your pet and have him castrated, because his natural sex drive is causing you inconvenience.
Ok Diskobolos, let me try and make this simple for you as im guessing you really dont get it. As said in a previous post there are millions and millions of unwanted cats walking the streets that have no home, food and have terrible diseases due to the fact that the mother/father was not "fixed"..... it is not cruel to fix your cat, its a very smart and responsiable act as an owner who has more than one brain cell to rub together to do. Not only does it stop what i just described but studies show that a cat lives longer when it has been fixed, they are ALOT more relaxed and not feeling the need to want to go outside, all the meowing when they are in heat etc. Did you even know that over 5 million cats ( and also dogs ) are put to sleep in america due to lack of neutering? Your lack of knowledge is truely surprising and for you to think that spaying is solely for the owners convenience is very much off track. Do your research and then maybe you will have a better idea how to answer questions you obviously have no idea about.
I adopted a Jack Russell terrier from the Humane Society 2 1/2 years ago. She is about 4 years old and spayed. She was been a sweetheart until we moved 8 months ago. She is still very friendly with all...
We are a rescue/foster home for cats and dogs. We have now 10 cats. Out of the 10 cats we have. We need four homes for them. Actually threehomes. Because two of the cats are brothers and wish they stay together....
