Hello everyone!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Ok Im here to figure out how I can stop this ordor in my house. I have a male cat little over a year old and this is starting to get annoying.


I love my cat and I love his purpose.


I make sure his box is cleaned all the time. I make sure he has enough food. I make sure he isn't stressed. Not sure how to rid of this problem.

Will Fixing my cat eliminate this problem?


Any help please thanks!

Check out the "behavior" section, but generally speaking, neutering a male cat will stop the spraying pretty quickly, usually almost immediately. Sometimes, it doesn't.

So the smell I am smelling is him spraying? Also fixing him won't remove that smell from his pee?

An unneutered male cat instinctively will spray. You will need to get a black light to see where he has sprayed and then Natures miracle to clean it. And you need to get your boy neutered ASAP.

You can get it at a pet store. You can also order it online. It is an enzyme cleaner that will take the smell away. Good Luck. I hope you stick around the site, there is a lot to learn and share with other cat lovers. Welcome to you and your boy.

Welcome, so glad you've both joined us! Please do check into having your little boy neutered. Let's move your thread to our Behavior Forum

I can tell you from experience that an unneutered male's urine has the WORST odor!! I found a stray about 2 years old, he was not neutered. I brought him into my home and put him in one room, yes, he did spray and the odor was horrible. After he was neutered, thank God the spraying stopped but it took about 2 to 3 more weeks for the odor to subsize. Hang in there, once your guy is neutered, things should get better.

Thanks for all the info. Unfortunately since the costs are a little much and the time isn't there to save up for it, We have to give away our beloved Kitty.

Can someone tell me where I can get a good home for him? I don't want to drop him off at the SPCA, I don't like that place. Also I don't want to run an ad either.

Peferrably someone relatively close to me so travel isn't much.


Short little story about Heman.

Little over a year ago we found him in a drain gutter unable to get out because his little paws would go right through the grates. Ever since then we have raised him and cared for him. We got the name Heman, because he thinks he is The Master of the Universe.
He knows his Name and he knows the word "NO!" When you call his name he looks at you and when he is being a brat We tell him "No!" and everytime we do he talks back to you by making a weird grunt or chattered meow. Almost like he is arguing back, kinda Cute! HAHA

Please any help would be great, we want a good home for him. He has his claws and he has not been fixed. Very LOVABLE, loves attention.

There are low cost neuter programs out there. If we helped you find one, would you be able to keep him?

Yeah we have found ones for like 25 dollars, but there isn't any opening until end of January. And we need something done immediately. We are losing sleep over the smell...Literally.

What city and state are you in?

Here, in my area, you buy the voucher and then can take it to any vet.

I see some places in PA you can buy the voucher and take it to another vet.

I am still looking, but can you see if you are close to any on this list?

Thanks for the info. I will run this by my wife. I have a feeling we will still need a home, even though 51 is cheep, we won't be able to afford it. But we'll see.

Heres another list, I see at least one as low as $20.00.

You have to do what is best for you, your kitty and your situation. This is just another option. Talk it over with your wife and let us know if you need additional info. We will be happy to help you as much as we can.

It still might be worth giving a call - "Lancaster" is a fairly large area. I found a rescue (not low cost spay/neuter) listed as being in Lancaster - but just 21 miles from the zip code you provide.

Might be worth contacting this place for the kitty or for looking into low-cost spay/neuter - it is listed as being in Camp Hill (my grandparents lived there and I spent many summers there!) - 23 miles away from your zip code:
http://www.pawsofpa.org/new/services.php

Here are some other places you can call to see if they know of low-cost neuter services (or if you are rehoming him, maybe they can help):

http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/PA380.html

This person volunteers and is not a shelter - and says it's best to e-mail, not call. But this person SHOULD know a local spay/neuter place. Let him/her know what your budget is! SCNBRescue@Yahoo.com

I hope you find a way to keep your baby boy. Good luck,

Laurie
