VERY naughty kitty

Sheba, the first cat to adopt us when we moved here, has a rival.  A chunky grey & white cat who we've nicknamed Smudger.  Smudger likes nothing better than to sneak in to the house, rush to the kitchen and eat any food left in the bowl.  On Christmas Eve he jumped on the kitchen counter and tried to  pull the foil off the duck!

When Sheba spots Smudger she'll chase him to the end of the garden and beyond.  She refuses to eat from her bowl if she gets a whiff of him.

Tonight things took another turn.  She decided Smudger had been eating from her bowl, and decided to make sure he knew exactly whose kitchen it was.  So she sprayed the nearest cupboard door. :q8:

How lovely your kitchen must smell now icon_rolleyes.gif

How are you going to solve that problem then?

Howard set to work immediately and the place smells of bleach.

Sheba spent about four hours sitting by the back door, plaintively chirping like a kitten.  I think that counts as an apology.

Be careful Lynne - cats like the smell of bleach and can take it as an invitation to spray or urinate!

Wipe the area where the cat has been with biological washing powder to erase all the hormone smells  then spray with surgical spirit - it's supposed to deter them. (unfortunately it'll make your kitchen smell like a casualty ward) Good luck!

My sister used this method for both dogs and cats and it worked to a degree. Unfortunately she had to keep changing chemists when purchasing the surgical spirit for fear of being branded as having an alcohol problem!   ::

That is a much healthier smell than cat urine :-?  shocked.gif
I know which I would prefer :-)
