Reviving the Topic - Aengus, Freshly Neutered and Other Cats
So, in my other post I linked to the video of Aengus in action, violating the cat bed. We adopted him from the humane society and he's estimated at just over 1 year old, and was neutered just before we took him home. You can see the scars on his shaved man berries, lol.
We went back to the HS a few days ago, and the lady told me basically what everyone here has written, about it taking a month or so for the testosterone to fade away. That said, here's a related question:
Our female, Lilah.... is not at all happy with this newcomer. I understand there's an expected adjustment period and it's only been a week - but I'm wondering if his "normal" testosterone levels could be making it worse? Our recently deceased male, Tommy, was older and had been neutered for a long time before coming to us, and she didn't really give much care for him as a newcomer. Now, she hides in another room all day and night and honestly has a sulking appearance. It's rather pitiful.
