Ack, how can people stand it!!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Well this isn't really a qustion but a comment!! My Little Man Bear is due to get neutered in about two and a half weeks. It would be sooner but an emergency came up. But his little hormones are running amock!! He likes to pee on my clothes, so now I have to keep them locked in the closet, all of them!! Little bugger. I had to buy Natures Miracle which really worked. How people put up with this behavior longer boggles me!! He even got My BRA!! My GOOD BRA..That Little..... I guess I just wanted to share. (thank god my husband is gone for a few months..He would not be this patient...) I have met people that don't believe in neutering/spaying, my god how do they PUT UP WITH IT!...(unless your a breeder...) I have some feliway spray, would that help calm him a little bit? JUst a little? Poor guy, He was looking at me looking at my bra going..what ma? It's a present just for you, don't it smell sexy???? Don't I look good to ya??

hahaha awww poor guy, and poor you! I completely agree! I don't know how people can just have unneutered males roaming their home. Especially those who have multiple males!

I noticed this morning that my rugs out front where sprayed and the cat was sitting on top of my roof I hope it does not get in to the house. I would get him in a trap and spay him but he has a collar so am sure he belongs to someone. GRRRR the smell is awful.

Just because he has a collar, doesn't mean he has a home. He could be lost, or have been abandoned.

And he's out and free.

I'd catch him and see if the collar has a tag with someone to call. If not, I think you're perfectly within your rights to have hiim spayed or given to a no-kill rescue.

Or if he does have a tag, give him back when they pay for the rug. Maybe then they'll be responsible and spay their animals.

Bubbles isnt snipped yet, but he doesn't actually mark anything in the house, just the garden and car tyres. My friend has 2 tom-cats and they do tend to spray around the house, but very rarely and my friend thinks thats more to do with another cat sneaking into the house. The thing which bothers me more is that fact that Bubbles can get very aggressive during play and I was told it would get better after the snips. I sure hope so, as I am always bleeding somewhere. But the main reason for him to get the snips is really that I am living in London, and I don't want him to roam that far. He doesn't normally cross roads and is very scared of cars (maybe thats why he sprays them), but if he smells a female in heat somewhere, who knows what he will do. So, as soon as have my next day off, he will be going to the vets.

Funny though, regarding the marking of clothes, my ex's cat does that, and he has been snipped since he was a baby. When we first got him he marked everywhere. Try and get the smell out of a mattress..... YIKES

Eeeww... When I get a cat, I'm going to have him neutered ASAP... well, as soon as it's safe, anyway.

Your Bubbles is beautiful, by the way, Madpiano. I haven't seen a pattern of stripes quite like that before.

Beau.. Our little male of 14 weeks is well on his way to becomming sexually mature. Talking to a cat expert I understand if the cat becomes mature before newtering it may continue to spray for the rest of it's life. Or one might get lucky and he'll stop. We're going to try and do this early as possible to avoid the risk of a startup.

Tubby started a little before we could get him neutered (fairly early), but he stopped right after. However, if it becomes an ingrained habit, they could keep on doing it.

I do not know how people can stand that either. I'm not sure if the rank pee, the howling, or the ultra-agressiveness is more annoying than the other side effects of waiting too long.

Teufel used to Hump my arm but not pee on my clothes?
Now he will only jump on my arm if i answer my mobile phone Since he has been neutered

Fluffy pees on my clothes and bathroom rug when she is in heat, and when the litterbox is not clean enough for her. She is being spayed today, so I hope that will stop.

I've never seen a cat hump someone's arm. I can only imagine what your reaction was the first time it happened.

Heck if I know. If a cat sprays you wind up having to confine him/her cause they will hit everything they can in the house!

When I first started my job (long time ago) there was a guy (single) who had over 12 cats - NONE of them spayed/neutered and he would keep all the males in one room and the females in another. Talk about being cruel - not only was he denying them mating, he had to be hurting them physically/emotionally too when the males were fighting/frustrated at not being able to breed the females when they were in heat.

No mater how much I talked to him about the dangers he was risking he never did spay/neuter them. I wish I'd have called animal control on him! And I'd have NEVER stepped foot in his house - it would have had to stink and I'd probably be physically sick too!

I honestly can't understand how he could stand the yowling AND the smell of 12 unfixed cats. That's more than a bit much. Imagine trying to sell that house...

Apparently he thought it was nothing wrong with this picture....as much as a cat lover as I am, I could NEVER stand that situation. No wonder the guy was single...no one in their right (or left) mind would have a relationship with him.

I've always wondered what became of him and the cats....

I'm not sure how the spraying thing works with females. Patches and Princess are fixed, and they still spray. Particularly thin plastic, like grocery bags. My grandmother's spayed female will also spray car windows. Grandma flipped the first time she went out to drive the car to church and it smelt like cat urine!

she probably will - Java did, & she was peeing on everything in sight before her spay!

Why would the female spray. Would it be if she is in heat.I never seen a female spray.

Doesn't sound like a situation that would've ended well. Sooner or later, a sane human would get tired of inhaling copious amounts of ammonia, having to hear multiple cats yowl for days/weeks.


The best case scenario would be some form of intervention or him getting sick and having animal control called on him by whoever he sent to feed them.

The worst would be that he dumped them out and now 12 are 40+ :S

Just a response in regards to snipping, and having the cat calm down and not be as agressive, Jackson was just neutered today so Iam personally not sure of the outcome, but before we had him fixed I did ask the vet of the chances of him calming down, and he said they calm a little if any. Plus, bubbles still looks like a kitten...true? If so he/she will calm down with time.
