Oh thank you so much for this. It helps to hear that this got better and they ended up friends.

I was totally wondering that too - could they have missed some testicular tissue or something. How long should it go away in if he is truly neutered?

We've been using World's Best which was what I always used before and it was fine. I am thinking I might want to change brands for this new guy, it just isn't doing well for him.

Behavior & Training > Oh no! Old cat hates new cat!

We just got another cat about 10 days ago - we moved and thought Nems hated it here and was lonely so we got him a "friend." Nems is about a 4 year old shelter cat who was very easygoing.

The new cat is a middle aged (shelter said five-ish, vet says more like 7 or 8, or a really hard living 5) male that was picked up off the street. Super relaxed. Was fostered with other cats and was fine. But since he got home it's nothing but trouble.

Nems went nuts! He stands at the door of the room where the new cat is and screams all day. Once, he slipped by and got in there and got in a HUGE fight with the new one, who cowered in the corner. We never saw this coming, thinking that the other was this tough old street cat, but Nems is bullying him like crazy. Tries to get in and attack him all the time, bangs on the door and twice has gotten it open. We have the new cat totally isolated but still Nems taunts him under the door and the new cat spends most of the day in the blocked off room hiding. He was a total clown/love bug at the shelter. Now they are both miserable.

I feel so bad about all this. I don't love the new cat yet and now everyone is unhappy and I can't take that smell in the house. And I can't take him back, that's the city pound and for an older male cat who is kind of ugly and scruffy that's a death sentence. Any advice? I just feel awful all the time. Will they ever be friends? What can I do if this doesn't work out? I thought that if it's that bad, maybe the new one can kind of live in the yard - I mean, it's not great but taking him back is death for him. What can I do? Will it ever work out?

The new cat smells horrible! He's been bathed multiple times. He smells like a horrible tomcat. They neutered him at the shelter in March when he came in, but he was intact through now. He doesn't pee outside the box, but when the room has been closed, the whole room just smells like male cat pee/tomcat. There's no pee anywhere loose - it's just how he smells. Will this go away ever? It's intolerable.

Cats and a Clean Home > Do you bathe your kitty?

YES it helps! I am super allergic to cats, and at first I was not going to let Nems even in the bedroom. But a bath about once every three weeks, and he's fine with me, sleeps in bed, etc, and nothing gets me at all. I know it's time when I start to get itchy/sneezy around him, but nothing like my reaction to a non-bathed cat.

I did NOT think it was dust free. It does track less, which is why I liked it and used it for quite a while, but when I take the box outside to dump, a HUGE cloud of stinky cat pee and silica dust flew off.

Ultimately, I quit using it because of smell. I think WBCL is better.

What are your specific worries? It's sort of hard to tell how this could be a bad thing for the cat or either of you?

Do post the story, we love the adoption stories.

I definitely agree with "Let the cat pick you." The cat that picked me was nothing like what I had in mind...but he's perfect! They know just as well as we do.

Cat Health > Will she Walk Again???

Have they tried giving her a good high dose painkiller? Sometimes that will let her get up a little. I'm not sure it sounds like spinal damage if she still is using the litterbox, that means she can sense the need to and control it. Does she move the legs at all?

When Namerovsky got hurt, he was mostly like that for quite a while, but I can't remember exactly how long. We could make him move his back feet though.

Also - you don't have to have her put to sleep. She can get a little cart with wheels for her back legs/end.
