My mom has a friend who is a wrecker driver and went to a fatal accident.
He call her who in turn called me. I say i could take him in for a while.
Needless to say I have a intact female with kitten.
Here is the story we got:
His owner dies in the car from what I am not sure they found the cat sitting on top of his owners chest.

I will ba able to acomidate for a while. But Now kittens are still small enough for the closet but in like 1 1/2 weeks the will not be anymore.
If I get him fixed befor then I will ley yalll know but If I dont he has to go do to mom getting pregnant again And I really don't need that.
I can make more acomidations If I need to but would mabye like to find him a forever home. He is a sweaty I named him after the wrecker driver that saved him from sertan death. Peter

The cat from the accident is an intact male.
She has a female with kittens in her closet already.

Best of luck finding "Pete" a home. That is so sad that he lost his person. Could you find if the person had relatives who would want the kitty? You could ask the officer who took the accident report to contact them for you.

He won't stop until he's neutered, and he might continue for a while afterwards. If you get a cleaner with enzymes and use it generously, you can remove some of the odor, but he will definitely continue until he's neutered. A tom knows when there is a female in heat, and at times, the discharge from a pregnant cat can fool him. Or, there could be a female in the area.

I'm seeing this an hour after the fact, but I sure feel for you!
I took Curly in last month and while he wasn't fully grown, he was grown enough that his urine stunk to high-heaven! I swear, when he peed, it went through the ventilation ductwork and stunk up the entire house. That was on a Friday night. Saturday I was able to call the Humane Society who got us in on Monday morning for neutering and shots. It still took about a week or two before his urine stopped smelling so strongly. I just made sure I was able to clean his litter box immediately after he peed to get it out of the house.
The enzymatic cleaners will certainly help. I would suggest putting him someplace that can be easily cleaned and he has NO CHANCE of reaching the nursing mother or her kittens.
You really are doing a nice thing for him. Good luck!

A week. Wow. I think that is a long time to have to deal with tomcat smelling pee. Was that with a local veterinarian? I was able to use a newly built/opened Humane Society about 20mi from home. Low cost and they were able to get us in quickly. Perhaps you could call around and see if there are any nearby and with earlier appointments available.

If your Hubby fell in love with the kitty, he must be a sweet cat. I really have a soft spot for the white-marked and spotted cats.
Poor kitty to lose his person, but now it seems he may have found a new person with your husband? That sounds so sweet.

Well I cleaned my bedroom and now he is in the living room with the dogs and he seems to be fine round them. He has not sprayed In the living room. He is young all his teeth are not even in yet He is a big sweetie I am in love to. Everytime I say fixed he looks a me. I can handle it my spay and nueter clinic does it for 25 SPCA does for like 50 So to wait a week and save a few bucks is well worth it. For me.

7am! But hey, at least the tomcat stink will go away much quicker!

When I took Curly in, I had to drop him off before 8am. He had to stay overnight and I had to pick him up the next morning before 7:30am. They try to keep their groups of going and in-coming seperate as their parking lot is sort of small.
Two early mornings in a row from someone who doesn't get to bed until after 2am...I was dragging around that week!
Let us know how it goes with Peter...

Did they clip his hair and it looks funny?
They did that to Curly. Curly is a pale orange and his poor little sacks turned red/purple from bruising. I felt so bad for him... They healed up fairly quickly. He was running around in no time and the bruising went away w/in a week and the sacks shrunk right down.

Expect his urine to continue to smell strong. It won't be AS strong, and it will get less of a strong odor as each day goes by. I think it took about 2wks before Curly's litterbox didn't smell so strong of tomcat urine.

Within 3-4 days post-neuter, the smell had gone down considerably and I could leave it in the litterbox IF it was covered. If he didn't cover, I had to either cover it or scoop it out. Until that point, I was scooping EVERY time he peed, it smelled so strong. I had to just get it out of the house!
