Hi, I'm new here and have a quick question. I was just given a spayed female cat for my shed row style barn. I didn't ask for this kitty, but was given her because she was urinating in the owners house. Here's the story, she is a young female, I'd guess 3 years old. My sisters boyfriends brother and girlfriend had the cat. I guess it started out as being their neighbors cat. Neighbor got it as a kitten and immediately left it outside all the time. Neighbors moved, girlfriend and boyfriend adopt cat after it has lived outside for 2 years. Bring it in house since last december. Cat has started urinating in the house about every 3 weeks she will urinate for a couple days in house then stop. THis is an ongoing cycle. THey just re-did house, don't want cat anymore cause of it's problem. Vet said cat is fine health wise. Local shelters said they would put cat to sleep. Rather then have Salem put down, owner decides she would rather have her as a barn kitty and drops her off at my house. I cannot take her in the house, that is not an option, I'm not being cruel, I just can't take her in. Right now she is in a cage in the extra stall that I have. I just got her yesterday and I didn't want her to run away. She is a very sweet little black and white kitty and I wonder how she will survive with coyotes and cold weather. So, before I let her out and perhaps lose her. Is there something else that could be causing this problem? I know the woman's 9 year old daughter was heartbroken to see Salem go. Please don't bash me for offering this kitty at least a home in my barn, I feel it is better than the alternative as did her owner.
