Male Cat Peeing on Kitchen Counter?

I got a 2 year male cat around a week ago. He was spraying everywhere so I got him neutered. He's seems to have stop spraying, but is peeing on my kitchen counter. He is a very timid cat and most of the time is hiding behind my couch. I have got the Feliway diffuser and spray and I have used vinager on my kitchen bunkers to prevent him peeing, but he still is. Anyone got any other ideas on how I can stop this?

Especially male cats - neutered or not - will mark their 'territory' by spraying. Whether or not there may be a female nearby may also be a factor. So, if you can make a particular area, in your home, and if that area is a large cage, the spraying may decrease.

Currently we have a longhair tortoise-shell female (spayed) cat. Which cat really belongs with a baseball player. From sitting position she will spring straight up to the hall ceiling to catch the ball. She also catches the ball on the rebound and returns it at our feet. FUN ! BTW, the hallway is 10 feet long.

From what I have read, a cat who voids on the kitchen counter wants you to see it. Your cat may have a urinary tract infection. This may be his way of communication. I would call the vet.

He is nervous about his new territory and marking it.
The higher up he is the safer he'll feel. I cleaned out the cabinet above the fridge, put a small blanket in it and leave one door open, the door next to the wall. I suggest you do this.

Get him also a very tall cat tree with a bed area or cubby at the top, not the bottom.
Fix low areas like the bottom off the sofa somehow so he can't get in, even if you have to store something big under there. The idea is to drive him up high. Cats who hide "under" lack confidence. A cat that can survey its surroundings will generally be at ease.

This is a sign of insecurity. By making sure that there are no animals threatening his territory, and by providing lots of high places to perch, he should become OK. Check out Jackson Galaxy's ideas on 'catifying' your living space.

My male neutered cat goes in the litter in front of me but over night pees on the worktop in my kitchen. I've even put a litter tray on top of my old tumble dryer. He's doing my head in x
