What age will a male cat start spraying

Well, many people believe that a cat will start spraying at the age of 3 to 4 months, but there is a lot of difference between the age of 3 and 4 months, and the age of 8 months. This is a very subjective age, but it is still a good idea to think about it. There are also some cats who start spraying after the age of 12 months.

So, is it possible to prevent a male cat from spraying?

If your cat is beginning to spray, there is a chance that it can be prevented. If you notice the spray at the age of 3 to 4 months, you can switch to a special cat food with less nutrients. This way your cat will be able to adapt to its new diet.

In some cases, you can also try a special diet for cats that are prone to spraying. If the age of 12 months is reached, you can try to give your cat a certain type of food which is high in fiber.

One of the cats is his mom and he gets along with her fine and the other cat is an older male but they tolerate each other (they’re both neutered).

Male cats are castrated for many reasons. Intact male cats tend to fight one another in order to defend their territory and to secure the opportunity to mate with a female in heat. Fighting can lead to scratch and bite wounds which often become infected, leading to abscesses. Castration is 85 per cent effective in reducing or stopping fighting. Neutered cats do not have strong territorial instincts and thus make better pets. Conversely, unneutered male cats tend to roam great distances, coming home only to eat and sleep. This roaming increases the chances of being hit by a car or getting into fights. Read more

Problematically, shelters like to desex at a young age — because that’s often when they have possession of the puppies. Similarly, the oft-cited behavioral improvements of desexed dogs are questionable. Dr. Hart has reported that only one in four male dogs neutered for reasons of “aggression” shows less of the behavior after the surgery; the same holds for rates of mounting and excessive urine-marking. In females, there is even some evidence of an increase in aggressive behaviors if they are spayed before the age of 1. Read more
