Well, Fetish seems better 'in himself' but still has to go to the vets on Friday, and will quite likely need an op as I can still feel the lump of the abscess. I have in fact squirted both the burmese and another black un-neutered cat with a waterpistol with a bit of dettol as well as lots of water in. Unfortunately this is not a permanent deterrent as I found a lot of fur from the Burmese and a cat spray smell in my kitchen again yesterday. To make Fet go to the loo outside I am having to go out and sit in the garden and have breakfast, dinner etc. and hang about until he has 'been' which is not great fun. When my son and his wife are back from Barcelona we are going to get an infra red catflap and collar for the cat, but this will not solve the garden problem. A neighbour has offered to help me leaflet the street re cat spaying, as this can be done free if you don't have much money. I would really like to present the owner with my veterinary bills, and would have probably caught the cat and had it neutered, but am not quite quick enough! I have not yet been able to obtain one of the really powerful waterpistols but am looking out for one, so if any neighbours receive a squirt of water unexpectedly, please bear with me, I am aiming for the cat!
