I don't think my new cat is going to be able to stay.

    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.

    :sad:

    It's life, Warmth.

    Would it help you to know that I'll be doing laundry, cooking and cleaning for the rest of the day - issue free? :urolleyes:

    He's actually a furry snuggly bundle of love, that I would love to be able to keep.

    But you're right - he's also an asshole pissing all over my house and clawing up my carpeting.

    I'd toss my kid out if they ripped up the carpeting and peed all over the house - forget a fucking cat.

    I'm all out of cockamamie - I took out some hamburger for tonight instead. I'm thinking hamburger helper, salad, and garlic bread.

    You hitting McDonald's for breakfast? I'd like one of their breakfast wraps please.

    I know you're right - but I damnwell told her that I didn't have the cash right now to neuter this fellow. She ASSURED me he didn't piss all over things.

    If she gives me back the $200 gift card, and the other $500 worth of presents I gave her, I'll pay to have HER cat fixed. Otherwise - it goes to the farm.

    I have to go to the bank. Otherwise, I'm entirely with you.

    I HAVE to spend all weekend Christmas shopping, and I'm dreading it.

    :sad: Are you being facetious shifty? I think he's adorable - but if you know what male cat urine smells like...you know why he can't stay. It's horrible. And then you do a cost/balance analysis on how much it will take to replace furniture and carpeting that he claws to shit - and you realize why it's not even a financial or sanitary option for me to keep him.

    I wish I could do better with this situation, but I simply don't know how to.

    :depressed:

    Call a local shelter and tell them the situation. They probably have a low cost neuter option available and can give you a referral. It will be far less than what your regular vet will charge. Tell your daughter you are willing to give this a little while longer if she helps you with the cost. Reason with her that you found a place that will make it affordable for both of you. You are helping her with the situation by taking in the pet and she should cover part of the fee, at the very least.

    After neutering, there are pheromone replacement sprays available to apply to the areas he sprayed so he will not want to revisit these
