Neutered cat spraying!

One of our several!


We have several cats. All of these cats have been spayed/neutered for at least 3 years. They have all had their shots, and are up to date. We have one cat though, that once in a while, will spray (he is a male). I have asked the vet why this would happen, and their answer was that there may be something outside that is scaring him. All of our cats are indoor cats, and he is the only one that this seems to be happening to. Is it possible that there really is something that might be scaring him? This is the first time that I have ever heard of this happening!
Any suggestions would be great!!

well there are many reasons why a neutered cat would spray occassionally. because of this I have written a web page about it which will explain further. The page also contains information on helping your cat re train to use the litter tray if need be. here is the link to the page

best wishes Kate
Your cat is definitely chilled out in this picture, so cute.
