How do I get my male cat to stop spraying even after he was neutered?
When a male cat sprays his territory it is something that they rarely, if ever give up. I'm guessing that the cat was older and probably exibiting this behavior before he was neutered. Unfortunately, it seems to be more of a "habit" than a result of his wanting to procreate.
By vern I had the same trouble with my neutered male. Health ok. Could not find any help. Looked on Internet. Bought calming collar, Natures Miracle Spray and diffuser from Pet Smart. This takes some time but well worth the time and cost. Will take a little time for results. Follow directions I hope you have good results as I have.
Cats that were spraying before they got neutered typically will stop after 6 months.
However if there is a high stress situation: moving into a new house, new pet, new baby, new roommate or the owner's significant other moves in ; that can trigger spraying.
Cats spray to mark their territory . Sometimes they will spray on an owner's purse, clothes, or suitcase to self-sooth and mix the scents of his & his owner.
I found out feliway works great! It's a spray that has the happy kitty pheromones.
My 8 month make Savannah just got neutered but he hit sexual maturity at 6 months.
So he still sprays. Not as frequent which was at least 5 times a day. He even sprayed on my boyfriend, when he was holding him.
I also had a roommate move a month ago which is when the spraying started.
Savannahs are more routines than other house cats , but I've learned any break in the usual routine can trigger spraying .
