Ok, well I didn't know that male cats can spray after being neutered. Call me dumb lol. I've had one cat , a female, as a child. I recently got a kitten and it is a male. I assumed I would never have to worry about spraying if I got him neutered early enough. But my family says, no, u should have gotten a female, your carpet will be ruined rather u neuter or not! Is this true? Is there anything I can do to prevent him from spraying? And also, I am considering buying softclaws for him, does anyone know if they work? I am worried about spending the 20 bucks and they just fall off. Thanks in advance for your replies, and nice to meet u all!
