Although it is preferable to have your male cat neutered at about their 6th or 7th month of life, it is not too late to have your adult male cat altered. Behaviors like fighting, urine spraying and roaming will be dramatically reduced, although some retraining for behavior problems such as urine spraying may prove necessary. Neutering must be done only by a veterinarian, and requires general anesthesia. Post-op care involves monitoring, keeping the incisions clean and dry, and keeping your male cat inside. The incisions heal within three to five days. Check with your vet for more details.
