There has been a lot of feedback from items mentioned in the "Debate"
section, which seems to be very popular.
Firstly on the subject of spraying. It never ceases to amaze me where
cats decide to spray and we have some outstanding examples this time.
Once again, my own cats take dome beating. Justin, my old-fashioned
boy, sprayed on the front room curtains. What's original about that you
may say, curtains being a popular spot to mark out territory. Only the
fact that below our curtains is a night storage heater. It dripped down
into the heater so that every time it got hot in the early hours of the
morning, the smell rose and filled the house to such an extent that it
woke us up. We were forced to switch the heater off completely (this
happened in mid-Winter) and it will stay like that until my husband finds
the time to strip and clean it out.
Sue has written to say that one of her cats sprayed in the heater
grille of her car. When she and her husband went out for a drive, the
smell was overpowering. He wasn't amused.
A letter from Sandra in Scotland gives two examples, the first was in
the writer's husband's lunchbox, which he took to work. She doesn't say if
he ate the sandwiches or not!!
The second was on the writer's St. John Ambulance uniform, which she
had to wear to duty that day. She was actually wearing it when it happened,
and smelled it all day.
Finally, one of my own cats sprayed in the large file where I keep all
my T.S.C.A. correspondence. How it penetrated I don not know, but a number
of letters and one photo were affected. The smell was so bad that I was
forced to photocopy the letters and throw the originals away.
