How to keep cats from marking your house as their territory?
There is a huge tomcat that thinks my house is part of his territory, and he's leaving his nasty, stinky mark all over my house and yard... I've only seen the cat a couple of times but he keeps peeing on my house and it's driving us crazy with the stench. How to I get rid of him? I know how to clean the smell, but how do I stop him from coming back?
To prevent the cat from coming back again, you must
1. Get rid of the cat urine smell
2. Keep the cat away from that area until the smell is completely removed.
3. Cover the area with something or try to scare the cat away with something.
Antifreeze in a bowl. He wont come back after that.(kidding, maybe) get a dog.
Moth balls! They work for all kinds of animals. Skunks, moles, raccoons, cats, even squirrels. :-)

Why does my cat smell so darn good all on his own?I know of other friends who sniff their wonderful cats (not even those that are professionally groomed) is there something about their saliva? For example, dogs smell horrible... but sometimes not... I had a dog who smelled naturally like cookies...

I have 2 male neutered cats. A few times they howled and seemed very upset when they were inside the house, while a strange cat was outside the back door. Is it a territorial thing?

I just got two new mice as pets. Yes, they are both male, but the smell that is coming from their cage is awful..much more awful then anyone ever told me. I wonder if the fact that they smell kind of shrimpy (or fishy) could mean they are sickly? If you have any suggestions or answers to my...
