More Cuddles Than This??

We were wondering if it's true that male kittens are more affectionate after they've been altered. Skeeter's already quite cuddly, but does have his crazy streak about mid-afternoon and 10:00 every day. Would this behaviour settle down after his operation? We don't want him to stop playing with us (fetch and chase and hunting), so I hope that doesn't change too much. Is there any typical post-alteration male behaviour?

All I know is how my Dusty was affected by his little operation... He is the most affectionate kitty and his playfulness/craziness was not at all affected by being altered. Even now, at 4 years of age, he still acts like a silly little kitten!

Cleveland was always a smoochie cat but his playfulness hasn't altered. In fact I'd say he plays more now. Or maybe you just notice 11 pounds of fur plopping onto you from a high place more than a kitten!

Tierney didn't change at all.. And i hoping Teagan wont either.

I think i heard somewhere if you get them fixed before they hit sexual maturity they don't change as much, or at all.. please please please correct me if i am wrong.

Maleke didn't change at all. We adopted Magic already neutered, so I don't know if he changed, though I doubt it.

Thanks for your replies! I feel better now about the operation. We are certainly going to get it done before he reaches sexual maturity...I don't want him to get his secondary sexual characteristics. I want him to stay cute and cuddly! He'll be 5 months next month and that's when we plan to take him in. It sounds like you all have some great kitties!
