Neutered Male Cat Spraying

Cat Spraying No More

When Peppers, my tom-cat was around seven to eight months old, he began to act weird. He started to become more and more aggressive. What’s worse is that he began to spray around the corners of the house. A well-trained house cat, who still used the litter box to answer nature’s calls, sprayed on the walls and furniture around the house. After speaking to a veterinarian, I learned it was all part of the natural
male cat behavior
. I had to get him neutered to stop this odd and nasty habit. I took his advised seriously as I could no longer take more of his scratches and bites when he was in heat. Soon, after a month or so, he began to calm down and soon overcame his habit to spray. However, I heard a friend complain about her neutered male cat spraying in the house. Thus, we both visited a veterinarian as I too feared my Peppers falling back on his old habits. The veterinarian spoke to us in detail and explained the neutered male cat spraying causes. I am sure there are many cat owners who too are facing similar problems. In this Buzzle article, I shall discuss the possible reasons for this odd male cat behavior and help you learn how to stop them from spraying.
