Trouble's footwork while you were tugging on her ear was hilarious! She is adorable.
"...each affects the other, and the other affects the next, and the world is full of stories, but the stories are all one." - Mitch Albom, one helluva writer.
When you throw a rock into a pack of dogs, you know which one you hit by the one that yelps!
Gut - I would see if there's a no-kill shelter in the area that could help with that cat. They might have someone who could take him or suggestions on something that could stop him from spraying. My cousin had an indoor-only cat that started spraying when she had her first son. He was SO unhappy. Eventually, they turned him into an outdoor cat and he was perfectly content after that. I wouldn't put that cat down unless it was the very last resort. There have got to be resources in the community that could help find him a new home and/or solve the spraying problem.
As someone else mentioned, cats usually spray when they're upset or stressed. Maybe she should call that guy from My Cat From Hell! I'll bet he could solve the problem.
Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov
I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"
Does Trouble still hang out under the bed?
Count your blessings!
A trip to the vet and perscription for Prozac took care of things nicely. I'd start him on it in October and take him off in in April. It worked wonders!
Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend...never owned a dog.
So overall much better.
