|I've lived with my adopted sister, Beatrice, since we were both very small (I'm about eight months older, and was neutered before she came to live with us).
A lot of times, even neutered cats in the same household will "hump" each other in a display of dominance. It isn't necessarily a sexual thing. Of course, even once the testes or ovaries have been removed, there are still very sensitive areas down there and it can feel good to rub them against someone.
Spraying shouldn't be a problem as long as a male cat is neutered before he's sexually mature (around 6 months). If you wait too long and he starts spraying before he's neutered, it could become a habit that's hard to break even after the surgery. It's best to neuter them before puberty.
Congratulations (maybe) on your new sibling, Kitty!
