I thought Smokie was a neutered male, but turns out maybe an unaltered female, has very thick hair in area...so how can

Um, your question sort of got cut off, but it shouldn't be that difficult to sex your cat. If there are deflated scrotal sacs, it's a neutered male. If not, it's a female, and there's no way of telling if she's been spayed or not (maybe a vet can tell, but the average person can't). With a male cat, there is more distance between the anus and the urethral opening than in a female. If you don't have a female on hand to compare him/her with, that might be hard to judge. (I just checked one of my female and one of my male cats, and found that this distance difference was indeed the case.) Hate to say it, but you're going to have get up close and personal to that area to make a judgment. That means parting the fur and getting a really good look (I just did that with one of my females, and no, she didn't like it). When in doubt, consult your vet. Mind you, vets make mistakes, too, but rarely. When my kittens were born, I figured out their sexes immediately.

It might be easier just to take Smokie to the vet and have them check. Most vets are very good at spotting a spay scar. If worse comes to worst, they can always do an ultrasound to find if there are still intact reproductive organs inside Smokie.

What made you think that Smokie "turns out maybe an unaltered female"? until its confirmed let me call smokie "him"
Where did you adopt him? Do you have any papers? else call the shelter where you adopted him from. Or as others suggested you should check with your vet.
The best thing to do is be prepared. In case you get a surprise ( either male of female) if smokie isnt fixed, then you need to get it done ASAP. You can check friends of animals website to get a spay/neuter certifcate, ensure your vet accepts it. That way you can get it done at low cost. <www.friendsofanimals.org> Good luck
