MAX showed up in the neighborhood about the middle of December, 2013. Obviously a tame cat.
Now after many cold snaps, he lives in my garage where he’s got a warm bed, food and litter. But the critter can’t stay here because I have three female cats already.
And, as a [formerly] unneutered male, MAX kept spraying the garage. When I let him in the house he squatted to pee on one of my area rugs and sprayed who knows where — the smell told me what was going on. So back to the garage for MAX.
BUT kitties being smart little beings, my females suddenly learned to ‘mark’ territory. eek!!
Outside for all the cats, rugs to the laundry, me turning out lights and going around with a black light to find the stinky spots so I could spray them with cat-urine-neutralizing spray. I’m using the Arm & Hammer brand and it works pretty good.
So, obviously I can’t keep MAX. He is now neutered, has all his shots, been bathed and treated for fleas and ticks — so soon its off to the Kyle PAWS no-kill shelter.
If you want a wonderful, healthy, 2 to 3-year-old male cat, please check him out at the Kyle PAWS shelter.
He is a sweet, tractable cat and needs a good home. He was my Christmas Kitty and I’m glad I was able to save this little beast. God help all lost cats and if my darlings go missing, I dearly hope someone will pick them up and care for them too.
