What drama. I was in here at the computer this morning when a stray cat came to the all glass storm door where Katie was and challenged her. There was a full fledged screaming and hurling themselves at the glass going on. I had to spray Katie to get her away and then I closed the door.
That did not end the confrontation. Katie continued growling in the entryway at the closed door and she was at full puff including the ridge down her back and her tail was like a feather duster. I waited and then luckily I found the Feliway spray that never worked for the Admiral and tried that. It seems to have helped a lot.
I was able to approach Katie after a bit. She scurried from window to window scouting for further outrage. I kept spraying Feliway Calming spray which again, helped.
Meanwhile, I called all the pet stores to see who had a certain brand..Lambert Kay Boundary indoor/outdoor spray to apply outside. It has to be applied daily but small price to pay. I got some locally. I also got some other super potent stuff 30 day stuff that can't be sprayed on many surfaces so I put plastic over the door mats and sprayed those. I also took advice and bought mothballs. Those are around the door steps. I myself just need to be careful about NOT walking thru that stuff even tho I take my shoes off on entering the house, I don't want any traces brought in. If I know tradespeople are coming I will have to temporarily remove the mats so as to provide entry without carrying in the "stuff".
So much for the Farmer's Market today. I can't leave while she's in full outrage because she may hurt herself or get beside herself even more without me here to try to diffuse the situation.
I DID go out, yes, to get the sprays and mothballs and hurried right back. But for awhile, I will stay here.
