Hi, really hoping for some advice from fellow cat owners. I own two cats, 1 male Siamese and 1 female moggy.
At our last house we often found cats sitting outside our door meowing and scratching to be let in. Our little female has been spayed, but at the time I did wonder if it was possible it hadn't been carried out correctly. I don't even know if that is possible but she was a rescue cat and spayed before we re homed her.
We then moved to live with my parents for a short time and had no problems, even with their own cats.
We moved to a new flat in late August and for the last month or so we have had numerous cats appear on our ground flat balcony, meowing and screaming at the door.
We could possible cope with this, but it is a very cold night tonight and a cat has been meowing outside our doors for nearly two hours. We have no idea where the cat lives, but it does seem to be in good condition and well fed. My Dh said to try and shoo it away and although I want to respect my cats territory, I am worried about the cat being out on such a cold night.
I have gone outside, and it is very friendly but it has tried to follow me inside. Understandably, my cats are quite distressed by the situation. I am very grateful for any advice.
Yes, Siamese was definitely neutered and they have both been to new vets since we have moved. Our female cat has a number of health problems (including multiple hip operations) so we are cautious about her potentially getting into fights with other cats. However she is a feisty little thing and seems to think she is at least twice her size.
I've had a female cat overseas that was neutered but still went into 'season' a few months later. I only found this out when she started throwing herself around, bum in the air and yowling in response to a couple of male cats outside, the hussy! The tomcats were big bruisers so I didn't let her out but she was determined to try.
Eventually the Vet decided to do an exploratory operation and it turned out the neutering hadn't been done properly, I think she still had one ovary which he removed. I never had a problem with her after that.
