male cat problem's
(san antonio tx)
i have a 1 year old male siemease cat. He has never been outside. He has only seem a female through my liveing room window. He has never breed. But he is spraying my laundry room and messing on our bed's. He has been litter boz trained. But chooses not to. Is this spraying something that can be remidied by getting him fixed? I don't want to loose him because he won't use the litter box like he should. He does use it but still spray's. An i can't let him outside. Because he would be stolen instantly. An then there is the stray dog's that the pound can't catch. That are real bad. I need help he's my baby. and i need to make thing's ok where he wont' do this and i can keep him. Please help me if you can. He mean's the world to me.

hi well the quick answer is yes having him neutered will help to prevent the spraying.
Male cats spray to spread their scent so female cats can smell them and male cats know to keep away as this is their territory. your male cat is doing nothing out of the ordinary and his age is definitely mature enough to be doing this. So yes i would definitely say get him neutered, he will be a happier more contented cat who won't be so bothered by all those male hormones making him crazy to get to females.
Once you have him neutered it may take several weeks for his hormone levels to drop so there may still be a few incidents. you could also try at that time giving him some litter training using the confinement method, this often helps to calm the cat down and get back to their old routine of using the litter box. here is the full information about litter training
