spraying?

Do males spray their territory even after they have been neutered?

It's not the usual thing, but can happen.

You're sure its territory marking and not a litterbox accident?

if you have an adult male that has already started spraying, it becomes a habbit, and will continue even after being neutered, but of course, nothing comes out, they just make the motion. if it's a young male and he has *just* started spraying and you get him neutered, the behavior should stop because it hasn't had time to become a habbit. if he is neutered before he begins spraying at all, then he should never start.

Some males still spray once their neutered. That's why you should get it done sooner rather than later. I'm sure a few even start after their neutered, but I don't think its a very common thing. Chances are once they start, they might not want to stop.
