5 years ago we took in this skin and bones stray, that turned out to be the most beautiful and loving cat. My kids absolutely love her, because she plays with them like a dog would. Neighborhood kids come over to see her, she's that popular. She's affectionate and never scratches or bites anyone (unless you're a bird, mouse, bat, rabbit, ...). I can get past her natural hunting instinct, but she has this very annoying habit of marking everything in her path. We had her as an indoor/outdoor cat for the longest time, but about a year ago my husband finally put his foot down and decided she was no longer welcome in the house. She had wrecked one too many of our things... Her outdoor behaviour is the same, and she's not even hiding the fact that she's doing it. Patio furniture, bikes, cars, garbage cans, chicken brooder, grocery bags, sleeping bags, tent, you name it, if it's on the ground she walks right up to it and "shakes her tail". My husband can't leave the door to his workshop (formerly known as our garage) open. I had the window of my car down the other day, and now my car stinks to high heaven... She's spayed and doesn't have any health problems, she's about 8 years old now, with this very bad habit. I don't know what to do with her, I generally believe in being a forever pet owner, but I'm certainly not very much in love with her any more... I don't really think that rehoming her would be an option, because with full disclosure, who in their right mind would want her? My husband would like to take her for a looong drive and leave her (not going to happen, he's all talk but wouldn't have the heart to do it), and I certainly understand where he's coming from. Any advice?
