Stop spraying

Hi there!

I'm new to this Forum and I'm looking for HELP. Tiger, our cat, is almost a year old and is huge for his age. But my main reason is, how do I get to stop him from spraying. I've told my husband if he doesn't stop we have to get his "nuts" cut which my husband totally disagrees with. But I won't do it, I'm just mad, just can't stand that smell.

Tiger will not stop spraying until he's neutered. Tell your husband not to worry, that nuetered Toms live healthier, safer lives than cats left intact.

Sandra, the easiest and most effective way to get him to stop spraying is to get him neutered. There is no other better alternative.

John just came home from work for his lunch break. I showed him your posts and he said that he wants to have a kid from Tiger just like he had from his first dog.

Well, you won't get a "kid", you'll get 3-5 of them (if not more ) And you'll have to find a healthy female cat (adding to your responsibility), keep the male and female seperated, make sure momma kitty is getting the optimal care and nutrition during her pregnancy, deal with the expenses from possible complications that could arise at birth, raise the kittens for at least 10 weeks, wean them, litter train them, make sure they get all their shots and stay healthy, socialize them properly, find them very good homes, see to it that they'll be spayed and neutered, get mom and dad and whatever kitten you keep spayed and neutered (ca-ching! $$)...

It's a lot of work, and that's just the tip of the iceburg. Not to mention the fact that you'll be bringing more non-purebred kittens into the world, when we have an overpopulation problem already.

Do you really want all that work? 'Cause I gotta tell ya, neutering will be less dangerous, less painful, less time, and less money than having a litter of kittens

Hey, this might sound crazy,well it did sound crazy to me, but my husband was asking if you can freeze Tigers' sperms, before he gets neutered.

He only wants 1 kid, not all the other ones.

Okay, I know Tigger must be a very special cat to you, but "freezing his sperm"??

Why don't you just adopt a little homeless kitty from the shelter?
