Is Rex altered? If he is not, the behavior is not his doing. Thank goodness, females only have to deal with hormones twice a year. A poor intact male has to deal with hormones all the time.

If Rex IS altered, then I would suggest something to cover the smell. It might not even be the anal glands as they usually do them priot to the bath. Try scenting them BOTH with the same scent. Just an idea. wave


I'll do anything- for a Kong

If Rex isn't neutered, I would get him neutered.
Also, you may need to keep him seperated from her for a bit after she returns home.
