Oh dear, spraying... smells... ewww

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Since it has been so hot and humid, I realized how awful my apartment smells like animals. Bowie has a spraying issue. I switched some things around in the bedroom and she came in to check it out and sprayed the wall. I can't believe how bad it is. I have too many cats for an apartment It is a large apartment but still.... I just wanted to rant a little bit. I am not really being fair to the cats though. Three of mine are really not doing well with so many other cats around. They are the most recent additions. I may try to find them a home where they can be around fewer cats. They are just too stressed out and stuff here. I don't know though. I am kind of at a loss as to what I should do.

Sorry to vent, just needed to complain real quick

Cats seem to have their own limits in the number. Some don't like more then a few, others will tolerate a lot more. For the sake of all your cats, I think you would be wise to cut back and find homes for some.

If you are renting your landlord may not be really happy if you have spraying cats!

im having the same problem , not with the smell but with a few of my cats not liking to many other cats in the same house.
sp i have a choice, i can either get in touch with the rescue who i was fostering for and i homed Gizmo and ask them to find him another home, and then find homes for Sophie, Chloe, mittens, wobbles, missy. who are all sort of *new*and that will put my total to 6 cats. or find homes for Forest and tigerlilly who are the ones who dont seem to like living in a multicat household they have been here since born and now over a year old.
i dont want to find any of them new homes , but i have to do what is best for them.

If they'll be happier, then that's best, isn't it? Just think of it as the same thing as sending a kid off to college...

yes that is what I am thinking. It is hard though. What a decision. If I lived in a house already and I can build an outdoor enclosure, that would be really cool. I know they would love that. the one cat who is not happy here would do so much better being outside, but it is too dangerous here with busy roads nearby. I have a hard time letting my one other kitty out, but she will literally destroy things to get outside if I don't. oh, we'll see. I would love to meet some nice little old lady who would like my himalayan kitty. He would be wonderful in a quiet home with an older woman, or man.
