Male Cat Urine Seems to Smell Stronger?

Our 8 month old male kitten has been fixed (as soon as he was 5 months), but he still backs up to stuff and it looks like he's trying to spray. His litter box absolutely reeks after one pee.


Is he is still thinking he can spray? Will the odor go away as he gets a bit older? We use Fresh Step. Should we switch to another brand? If so, what brand would be best?

Yes, male cat urine smells much stronger. It is the testosterone. It allows them to mark therir territory. Even when a male is fixed the urine still smells stronger. Neutering a male or female does not eliminate the marking behavior, but it does lessen it. I used Comfort Zone with my male cat to discourage any more marking. It worked.
