Customer Question
Hi Terri we have...

Hi Terri we have a neutered male cat 15 year old that we have had for just over a year (owner had to go into aged care) he has just started spraying the house, he favours my partner more and I got a bite in bed last night because she hadn't put enough food out any suggestions

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the cat's name?

His name is*****: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Gabrielle?

We occassionally baby sit a dog who left last Sunday and there was a cat who entered through his cat hatch to eat his food about 3 weeks ago
