our amber used to to this, she was spayed but a bit under confidence so marked territory in the garden and could scream for england if another cat turned up on the fence (the garden is cat proof so they never came to blows)

Hiya Desley, We acquired Rosie round about June, that's when her lovely owners took her to the vet to be PTS because she meowed all the time  >:(
and it was one of my neighbours who knew we'd lost Robbie put me in touch with the vet.

The story of meowing turned out to be a load of lies and Rosie is a typical cat (apart from the time she almost bit clean through my hand coz I rubbed her belly for a second too long  :doh:

Not sure how unspayed females usually act, just know they do additional things, I haven't seen Rosie do anything weird, she just gulps when she is purring (guessing she's swallowing excess saliva)

I have known spayed female cats do that, though it often doesn't include urine, unlike males and is normally a territorial thing, which seems to fit with what you've said about her. I can't remember how long you've had her, but guessing it is longer than 9 weeks, so think you might have noticed if she is unspayed.
Please spay your cat

Hi Folks, it is I, I haven't left  :evillaugh:

tho it has been a while  8)

Ok, wee update on the Madam known as Rosie, basically she has turned into a female version of Robbie, out most of the time, when she is home, just sleeps, she has fairly made herself known to the other neighborhood cats and made it perfectly clear that the presence of other cats will not be tolerated  >:(

I haven't seen her fighting and she has yet to come home with scratches/scabs etc, but by jove she can scream  :shocked: I haven't heard her in a while tho next doors Bella still frequent's the garden  :shify:

Rocky our Lhasa Apso is a little shite and will chase Rosie at any given opportunity, I keep telling Rosie to stop running and he will stop, but I think she likes the chase  ;D stupid dog...

anyway, we come to the main point for this post, I was in the garden not 20 minutes ago and observed Rosie spraying against a fence (like a boy)  :shocked:
I didn't know they could do that, this makes me worry tho, is she just simply marking her territory or is she on heat  :scared: although I asked the question multiple times if she was dressed, I never actually got an answer... I'm guessing they would act different if they were on heat? yowling and such, thankfully, I've not seen any strange behaviour  :briggin:
