  • YOU have to get them fixed. No way around it. If you go online you can find vouchers to help you pay, because it gets pretty expensive. I have to do this with my kittens/toddlers....they are starting to show the signs of being in heat.

  • Like everyone else said, you have to get them fixed. Also, be aware that now since the cat is doing the marking it might not stop after being fixed because it becomes a learned behavior. The sooner you get it fixed the better your chances of stopping the habit.

  • If he already sprays, will he stop after she gets him fixed? IDK, I've never had a cat spray. I had 2 boy cats that their pee smelled really strong, like they sprayed. But, it was the canned food. Once I stopped feeding them that, the pee wasn't so strong.

  • get them fixed that is the only way

  • Sometimes cats that are fixed will continue to spray. But that is a sign that something else is wrong. My cat did it for close to a year until we discovered that her kidneys were crystallizing and it was extremely painful for her. It was the only way for her to let us know what the problem was.
