i'm with everyone else. my middle cat is six years old and I got him fixed when he was eleven months. too late actually, but things got in the way. I also kind of forgot. he wasn't doing that then though, he started peeing on my bed. everyone was like, "neuter him, neuter him, that will fix it." it didn't though. i'm pretty it was for a completely separate issue, so your cat might keep yowling but he probably won't.
the same cat (Baci) has just recently amped up his pathetic yowl. he has had this call for a few years now, but it was limited to once or twice a week. now he does it every day and sometimes several times. it's the most pathetic thing you've ever heard. a cross between a baby crying and someone gargling. he's Siamese and i'm really used to them being vocal. but he always goes wherever i'm not and starts doing it. I ignore it and pretty soon he comes in with a toy, lately a catnip mouse. I always used to throw it first thing, then I thought well maybe he's bringing me a gift, so I would say thank you, and then he'd look at me like I should play. then sometimes he chases it and sometimes he doesn't. I think he just wants attention. I have a younger cat but they don't play together very often and I wish they would. I play with him, but he will often do it in the daytime and then he always does it right when i'm going to sleep so I don't think I can do much about it. I've tried to record it but my recorder must not be strong enough, plus he quits doing it, of course.
