    Odd Question I guess but how do people who keep male cats for breeding put up with the spraying? I've heard of outdoor runs but how do you put up with the stink?

    Just popped in my head today. I remember when Horris wasn't neutered it was a nightmare putting up with the stink.

    In the UK most of us use outdoor runs. In the US it seems to be the norm to have the stud cat in the house and in a separate room. I actually had two stud cats living in the house once. I do not have a good sense of smell. One tends not to have many visitors ....

    I have a very good sense of smell (obsessive).

    Ice stays outside from 6am-9pm, strangely enough his run does not smell, the trick is to keep it clean, most people who have outside runs have washable walls etc, so ours does not smell, neither does Ice, not from spraying.

    I wash his run out with bleach once per week, let it air dry, but he doesn't seem to spray too much out there yet, he keeps it for when I have my nice handbag and sprays in their instead.

    My boy lives in an outside run and I clean it out with a specialist spray which break down the urine and gets rid of any smells. However to be fair to my boy he doesnt spray, his wee in his tray absolutely pongs but as yet he has not sprayed. There is no way even with him not spraying that I would have him inside for long as his wee is like acid! Burns your nostrils on contact and im super obsessive that just cos i am a cat lady I dont need to smell like one!!

    Hes mature and has been proven so im amazed he hasnt felt the urge to spray yet. Perhaps it is because he is my only entire boy im not sure.

    I Know!!!! :eek: I was in the Post Office and thought it was the man next to me so edged away from him, then I moved to another till and realised the smell was following me (it was me who was stinking)! :eek: :D

    I washed it and didn't use it again until I collected my new cat as it's my "nice" hand-bag, then I left it beside the chair and he done it again so I have hidden it upstairs. He doesn't go up here, little blighter. :D

    So I guess what I am saying is no my boy does not smell, his house is fine too but I may smell a tad from time to time (without realising).

    hehe thanks for making me laugh today!!!!!

    Its happened to my little girl though.... she kept complaining of a smell on the way to school (i thought it was just an excuse about not wanting to go to school)... ended up that one of the dogs must have cocked their leg on her school bag! :eek:

    Oh and billy has cocked his leg on the postmans bag too :eek:
