Why should I have to clean up after someone else's cats?

Recommended Posts

We have one nasty tomcat that comes into our garden, and even our conservatory sometimes and sprays, apparently that's different to normal cat pee and it smells awful!! So even though I love cats, I agree that it can be a pain but there's not much that can be done!

 

Urghhh! Nothing worst than the stench of unneutered tom cat! We fostered one particuarly pungent one once and, although he was kept in an upstairs room, the smell hit you the minute you walked through the back door. And it took a couple of weeks after he was de-balled before it faded entirely. We almost took to wearing gas masks and had to refrain from asking anybody into the house :hihi:

The neutered ones can still spray, I assure you.

Yes, I know. One of mine did, all over my velvet curtains! He took the hump because we'd had a litter of kittens in a cage in the bay window, mardy sod. But the smell wasn't nearly as bad as that of an unneutered tom.

My mum neutered tom sprays everything he can, plants, CD towers, the TV, the curtains, other cats, the dogs he really isn't picky and when he does it it stinks.

Also if he isn't spraying he's trying to make sweet love to something or someone, I think the vet botched his op:suspect:

Cats are the hosts of toxoplamosis, If in any doubt read here ;http://www.isabellevets.co.uk/health_advice/cat/info/toxocat.htm

 

That is why cat C..P is different to C..p from any other animal.

 

True - but most cases are caused by raw or uncooked meat, not by cats: http://www.cats.org.uk/catcare/leaflets/med_news_toxo.pdf

I hear cats like tomatoes chopped up with a sardines ;)

 

I had the same problem but it seems to have gone away :)

 

Thanks just added sardines to my shopping list:hihi:

My solution the same problem was to keep a cheap water pistol (not the super-soaker type) next to the sink. If the offending cat is about to leave a deposit, just give it a quick blast....worked a treat
