Likelihood a cat will stop spraying after he's neutered???
Just looking more for feedback from cat people who have been there. I have seven cats, but this is the absolute first time I've dealt with spray, so I'm a newbie on the topic. I am pretty sure, like 98% sure, that the newest member of our family is spraying due to hormones. His previous owner never dealt with it, she claims at least. I have six other cats and I'm sure he feels the need to mark his territory. Anyone know if, because this is a hormonal thing, neutering will stop it completely?? He's getting neutered anyways, I'm just looking some responses, feedback, and experience from people who have been there!! :)

When I went to the shelter I was a very smelly unneutered cat. I was fixed and I don't even know if I have the machinery required to spray if I wanted to! Don't worry he won't be stinking up the house anymore, but GL cleaning up what he's done so far!

I have the same problem with my 4yr old female.she is spayed as well. If there was a contests for spraying she would win it hands down. Yes it is hormonal so my vet tells me. She is also showing aggression to the others,like you i have 7 of my own. My vet has put her on a course of treatment that is used in the US for phediaphiles. It is a medical drug which acts as castration. It worked great the first time. About a month.This time not so lucky so its back to the tests.Even though all of my males are neutered, this time of the year a couple of them show mild signs of an un-neutered male. Whether it is just a memory, or a feeling of what they should be doing i dont know. Its not the first time i have had to use this medication on one of my males, but not any of the females. That is really one for the book. If anyone finds the answer i would be more than pleased to know it.
