Macho behaviour = late neutering?
I was wondering if any of the breeders in this forum have ever neutered an adult stud cat to retire him to a pet home? If so, did that cat still exhibit tom cat behaviour to some degree after being neutered?
I'm wondering because Saxon will occasionally straddle Sandy and do what appears to be dry humping. I've seen dogs do this, but never cats. He also wants to go out for walks, and it often seems solely for the chance to sniff bushes and trees and then back up and spray them. Fortunately, he's never sprayed inside the house. That I know of. I've never smelled it, at least.
He's approximately 6, going on 7 and was neutered long before we got him, but we don't know exactly when.
(E.T.A.: Lucky for him that Sandy is an extremely placid cat. He has a split in one ear that our feisty old lady gave him a few months before she died - we wonder if he tried this humping thing with her and got belted.)
