It helps in finding the right vinegar strategy for the right cat.  :M

And will save you from assuming that every spraying cat is male. Assuming genders is a tricky thing, nowadays.  :M :M

The word 'salary' comes from the Latin word 'salarium' and meant basically money given to soldiers (way back) in order for them to buy salt.

Raccoons hate the smell of ammonia

Cat pee contains ammonia, so using ammonia based products to clean your front porch can sometimes result in cat pee.

Yeah, this was a lesson learned.

  Also, don't bleach your toilet if there's pee in it, because bleach + ammonia = FUMES!  :zombiefuck:

Neighbor had a female that could spray better than the males. I didn't even think that was possible until I watched her do it one day.  :zombiefuck:

Little dainty thing could win a pissing contest hands down.

  My former landlady had a couple of neutered males who still occasionally sprayed.  :zombiefuck:

Simple mnemonic device in understanding/seeing the difference between an ocean fish and a in salt water living mammal is to look at the caudal fin.. or tail fin.. of the swimming creature.

Fish (all of them) have vertical 'standing' tail fins. Ocean swimming mammals, like whales, orcas or dolphins, do not. No, their tails, the end of their body's fin, 'lay' horizontally. Quite a difference in swimming techniques between the 'two' also.

Fish > vertical.
Mammal > horizontal.
