I am a 13 year old cat named Bonzo and have been neutered. My problem is that for approximately the past 1 1/2 years I have been spraying in the house.
My mom took me to the vet to see if there was anything medical wrong with me and there was none. The vet thought it was just behavioral. This was about a year ago.
Mom also talked to a pet communicator to see what my feelings are. She was really not much help.
I am a very affectionate cat and sometimes want to be on mom's lap all the time. She gets really frustrated because I want so much "lap time" and sometimes yells at me. Sometimes I
go in another room and howl. Mom usually lets me outside then. Why oh why can't I stop spraying?? What can mom do to help me?
Thanks in advance for helping me.
I understand how you can look at your mom and see her as if she is a cat too because you think you are just like her since she is all you can see to measure who you are.
She doesn't understand that you are the man of the house and want her to see you in that role even though you have been neutered. It is only because you need love and not that sexual kind but the
kind that allows you to maintain your dignity and take care of home matters.
Howling is your way of letting her know just how upset you are by her rejection of you. Maybe mom could get you a female friend who is also neutered with whom you could share more time and love
and find that she looks more like you.
Please let us know how everything works out.
