We have a couple of cats that live in our bedroom at the lodge. Too many people have allergies to let them be free range, so they live with us only. It's a large bedroom, with lots of windows, so they are happy for the most part. Except that the kitten had reached kitty puberty.
Yesterday, Juanita and I took the kitten, "Pounce De Lion", to be spayed at a clinic, the Fort Collins Cat Rescue. They are running a "Beat The Heat" special in February. Spaying for $20, +$14 for a rabies shot. So for $34.00, she was out the door.
We got her home last night and there was a replay of day one for our older cat. Every time Pounce would get near the older cat, the cat would smell the new odors (probably disinfectants or whatever you clean a surgical site with) on the kitten, and the older cat would HISS UP A STORM!
I finally got fed up and painted some "Vicks VapoRub" on the older cat's nose and she couldn't smell ANYTHING else after that.
We all got a good night's sleep after that, and we are planning a nice, long, quiet, future with the little critter now that she is fixed.
Here's to hoping,
