Don't get male cats. I've never had a male cat for precisely that reason.

I think he's referring to the "spraying" that male cats use to mark their territory.

When or if you get their nadgers removed, you can also ask for the scent glands which make that hideous smell to be removed, if it's any comfort cats only spray the borders of their territory, so they don't usually spray your house, if they do then it may be a sign that they are a bit insecure. Of course knowing they wont be doing it in your location is not much comfort for your neighbours when their porches reek.:yuck:

If your worried about having a cats nadgers removed, don't be cats tend to live longer without them, IIRC.

I rest my case. :rofl:
If anybody here has not visited BobG's link to watch that video, you are really missing out.

My males are neutered, so they don't spray.

Dogs don't hide the puppies from their people!

We finally found the kittens, now that they're already old enough to be weaned. And the aren't friendly at all (Momma Cat has had them well hidden). :grumpy: Two calicos (calico is my favorite) and a gray for certain, maybe two more in there (one person says she thought she saw one with Siamese coloration). Momma Cat is finally going to get spayed this week (they've taken care of the "nadgers" :rofl: on the males already...or at least all the ones they could catch so far).

I had to laugh though...they're tagging all the cats that have been spayed/neutered so nobody tries to do it twice (and so that they're "official" farm cats). One of the females was brought up to another vet because the anesthesia masks we have didn't fit her, and she came back with a ruby stud earring as her eartag! :rofl: I somehow doubt that's going to last long, but it was cute, and if it falls out, she'll still have the hole to know she was spayed (if the scar isn't enough of a clue).

This should settle the debate once and for all. Dog saves owner, but dies trying to rescue cat
Cats are evil! The cat set the fire! :grumpy:

Dogs are heroic. They not only retrieve their owner's artificial leg, retrieve the phone so their owner can dial 911, and drag their owner to safety, but they will give their life to save even an evil cat! :approve:

Poor 13-year-old 3-legged chihuahua! :cry:
I'm just guessing about the breed and the number of legs.

The moral of this story is.......if you are going to light candles around cats, keep your leg(s) within arms reach!
