My best friend's boyfriend did this to her cat a looong time ago. I think part of the key here is to ask permission of the cat owner before qtip-dildoizing someone else's cat. (Unless it's a psycho roommate, in which case you may be doing yousrself and the cat a favor if you do this and never mention it.) My friend was most upset that her boyfriend committed catfuckery without telling her.
I think one should either ask permission or just never speak of the act to the cat owner. Telling your girlfriend "Hey, your cat was being a horny little freak, and I was in the bathroom and there were Q-tips, and I just - well - it made the cat shut up" is kind of dodgy.
I feel the need to point out this other, obvious issue here. Unless the cat is pedigreed and being used for breeding, IT SHOULD BE NEUTERED. If you are LIVING with someone who WILL NOT neuter their cat for any reason EXCEPT the above, you should MOVE.
Thank you. I was about to voice the same comment. :) (If it were me, I'd get said housemate's cat spayed/neutered and add amount to house accounts.)
But sometimes we adopt animals who go into heat before they can be spayed (and it's risky/more complicated to spay during heat). So the info could be useful. I've never been tempted to dildo-ize a cat (even when my kitten tried to have an affair with the Quaker Oats Man's box... Gods, that was hysterical.) But I suppose it is useful information to know when the wailing just won't stop. Clinically-speaking, I'll file it away. ;D
And if you think about it, Colubra, it makes perfect sense that it would work, given cat physiology. :)
If you're referring to the cat I'm thinking of, both getting it fixed and trying to use the q-tip remedy would be difficult at best.
...as far as we're concerned, she's feral. We've now gotten to the point where she no longer lives exclusively under the couch, and we can look at her and talk to her without scaring her half to death, but we can't touch her, and we certainly can't get her into a carrier. (We have a humane trap, but I'm sure we would catch everybody else in the house before she set foot in it.) This hasn't been a problem thus far, as there is no one in the house who could impregnate her ...
Actually, according to my Vet, it's dogs who shouldn't have the operation when in heat. It's no more dangerous than it normally is for cats. The important thng is to prevent mounting for a week or so after the operation, since a male cat could claw the stitches open. The female cat stops feeling like mating right away, but continues to smell exciting to the males.
yes, this is useful for just getting her to shut the hell up so you can sleep TONIGHT, rather than useful for getting her to drop out of heat. That still has to take its natural course for a non-pregnant cat- but this at least shuts her the hell up so that you can sleep.
