If you’ve desexed your cat, you’ve successfully done the very first thing we recommend cat owners to do when spraying becomes a problem. But if that still doesn’t cut it — and your lovely fur ball still keeps spraying objects both inside and outside the home — the 7 tips I’ve outlined in this post will teach you how to stop a spayed cat from spraying. Hope you enjoy it.
How Long After Neutering a Cat Will It Stop Spraying? ⌛
So you’ve probably figured out that neutering (or desexing) your cat is the best way of preventing spraying long-term, especially before your cat has reached its sexual maturity. You might still experience spraying by your cat even after the neutering procedure has been complete, the reason being the testosterone still remaining in the cat’s system.
According to VetInfo, a cat that’s spraying urine might continue its behaviour for up to six months after the procedure. The behavior should lessen overtime and finally disappear, but if you’re still experiencing spraying — I’ve written this post just for you.
Like we’ve said in numerous other posts on the Cat Spraying Insider — cat spraying is a completely natural thing for mainly male cats to do. It’s their way of picking up a girl at the bar — figuratively.
But it’s not the only reason why cats end up spraying. It can also be due to a number of other reasons, such as stress, illness, or if your kitty is simply unhappy with their environment. It’s your job to figure out the why.
By following the tips I’ve outlined in this post, hopefully we’ll be able to get your spayed (or neutered) cat to stop spraying as much. Hope you enjoy it.
