Question Castrated Kitten acting like hormonal brat!

Me again!

I wanted to ask this in my post about Oscar weeing in his bed but it was a bit off topic so I thought I would start a new one!

So yeah, we had the kittens castrated just over a week ago and since then Oscar has been a little sod!

He is acting like an intact stud, going around the house yowling, pouncing on Tinker and Wilson, picking on Wilson over food even though they have separate dishes and just all in all being naughty.

He is so much worse since having the snip and I thought the op was meant to settle them down!

I feel like I am constantly 'Oscar get off the tv!' - 'Oscar get out of the bin!' - 'Oscar stop eating my shoe!' etc etc and the other 2 are so laid back.

Is this normal? Will he settle down or am I going to have to put up with a naughty child? I love him either way but he is becoming relentless

He'll settle down. When a pet is altered, he still has hormones in his system from before he got the snip. It takes time for those to work their way out. Since he's not producing more, he'll gradually calm down.

He is currently attacking my knee -.-

He had started humping Wilson which is why I decided it was time to get them snipped. You think that maybe he is having a big hormone surge or something?

I know you said this in the other post but I forgot, how old are they? I only did one, and he was eleven months by the time I did it. (I had an extended illness, things happened, blah blah blah.) mine was a little terror before I did it anyway. he came home a big scaredy-cat, is now six and to this day, hides or runs whenever he hears a male voice. (even on tv LOL you know how commercials get louder.)

i'd think he'll settle down. cats just have different personalities. he's just your naughty-boy. even the most rambunctious boys seem to settle down for the most part at about three years. (can you survive that long?)

They are nearly 6 months. Wilson is just SO laid back it makes Oscar look worse. This evening I trimmed nails. I did Wilsons in less than 5 mins and even went back over them another 2 times. It took 30 mins to get Oscars front ones done and this was while he was sleepy.

3 months, 3 years, doesnt matter.. I still love the brat!
