    Thanks Neal! But sorry to hear how bad it’s been for you this year. In the GTA we were hopeful when it was late April and we hadn’t seen an explosion of kittens – ALL the rescues and shelters had few kittens. But then May saw the explosion start and it’s been going strong since :(

    Jenny I’m not sure I understand what you’re asking. First off, is the cat, that is peeing everyone, neutered/spayed? Second, has there been any big changes in your home/lifestyle that could be upsetting the cat? Another thought regarding the cat that’s peeing everywhere – have you taken the cat to the vet to see if there’s a medical reason that he/she is peeing everywhere? That’s actually the very first thing that you should do – if the cat has a blockage that will cause the cat to be in pain every time they pee. And they will associate the pain they’re feeling (when they pee) with the spot they are peeing in. So the first time they feel the pain they would be on the litter box – and so they would associate the pain of peeing with the litter box. So they’d pee someowhere else. But then they are still in pain so the pain they feel in every place the choose to pee, they’ll associate with the pain. And that’s why they’ll just keep searching for somewhere new to pee hoping that they won’t have the pain when they pee in a new place. So in the end, it’s essential to have a vet look at the pet to see if there’s a medical problem. If you feel you can’t afford it or deal with it, you should really consider surrendering your cat to the Toronto Humane Society. To do that you’d need to either call 416 392 2273 during business hours, and ask for the intake department, or email them at intake@torontohumanesociety.com. Let me know if you need me to clarify anything.

    I,helped this woman trap some black cats,last December 2013,in ST.James Town and just before she was to take the 2nd.one to the Toronto Humane Soceity,I decided to keep the little black cat and she takes my breath away,this is my first pet.She cries a lot,should I,get her a buddy,to keep her company?She follows me everywhere,I go.Im taking her to get her shots on APRIL5/14 at the Yonge Street Mission.

    Hmmm John, that’s not an easy question to answer. I guess my first question for you would be has she been spayed? If she’s crying all the time and she’s not spayed then it could be a related issue. When female cats go into heat they’ll make a yowling kind of sound and they’ll make it incessantly during that time. If she hasn’t been spayed you’ll be doing her and yourself a huge benefit by getting her spayed (it’s very taxing on their system to constantly be going into heat). The Toronto Humane Society’s spay/neuter clinic offers affordable surgery ($70 +tx). I’d highly suggest you checking them out (you can call 416 392 2273 during business hours – just ask for the spay/neuter clinic or email them at spayneuter@torontohumanesociety.com. All the info you need to know about the clinic is at http://www.torontohumanesociety.com/sn_clinic.htm) If your cat HAS already been fixed, then getting a little friend for her isn’t a bad idea. They can play together and keep each other company while you’re at work or out (which is really nice). It’s really a personal choice. But before you do anything, if you haven’t already, I really hope you get her spayed. It’ll make a huge difference for her. :) Let us know if you have any other questions.
