I knew what I was getting into - an un-neutered, fully clawed tom. I can deal with the CONSTANT meowing, but he's already torn up one of my carpeted stairs, pissed all over the front hall closet, and on my brother's bed downstairs. Tore up the dog's face too - but she deserved it. My daughter ASSURED me that he didn't pee, and that he stuck to his "cat scratching pole" - she fibbed. I'll give him another week to adjust - but I simply CANNOT live in a house with an animal that destroys my home, and pisses all over our stuff. This saddens me to let her down - but it's simply not gonna happen if he doesn't smarten the fuck up, fast.
