My husband and I have a male cat who will be celebrating his 21st. birthday in a few days. We live in the country, so traffic is not a great problem, but we do have critters. "Max" has been an in and out cat all his younger life. Now he is in retirement and seldom leaves the back deck. He is like a new born in that his days and night mixed up. Sleeps all day and wanders the house at night. Max has a house mate, named Sissy, a 11 year old calico. Sissy is a in and out kitty, as well, but inclined to spend her time outdoors sleeping on the front porch.
I read about the problems some were having with their tom cats spraying inside. and the odor that this causes. Have you had those boys neutered? All of our male kitties have been neutered and though they still can spray there is no odor. Females are spayed and can spray as well. Just one of their way sof marking their territories. This spray can take the finish off your urniture!!!! and discolor the fabric as well. Through all this we still love them and will miss them when they are no longer here with us. Jane, Shingletown, CA
