Is it possible that my cat was not neutered completely?
I have a stray which was neutered and brought into my house and my other 3 male cats are literally stalking him. Is it possible the vet messed up? My other cats have all been strays brought in over the years and from the start the new cat has always been accepted. He has been inside now for a month and kept separated from the others when I am not around.
I just finished reading your post. I'm curious. Is your new stray about the
same size as your other three male cats or is he the smallest of the group?
Could it be a territorial thing? I would be interested to see what some of
the other cat parents on this site think. I think it's a good idea that you
are keeping the latest male stray separated from the other cats when
you're not around. I think it's great that you have rescued all these male
cats. Good luck trying to find out what's going on. Eve ( mother of Sammy)
Hi, Carol. Throughout my years of working with cats and dogs in vterinarian situations, I was once told by a vet that if even ONE testular cell is left behind, it makes the neuter unsuccessful. The only way to fix it is to have a vet go back in and remove more tissue, inhopes of removinf ALL of the cells. - Blu
I was afraid of that. We originally weren't going to bring him inside but a month after we had him neutered he came to the door and the one side of his face was all swollen and so we took him to the vet to have that treated. That is when we decided to bring him inside. So far this has been one expensive stray. I would really love to find him a forever home as he is petite and lovable.
