Do male cats get mad after being neutered?

Neutering before the age of one year old usually means that your cat’s head and face will not widen up to the level that it might if they were not neutered-however, if your cat is castrated as an adult, their heads may already be rather wider and this is not something that is reversed by the castration procedure.

When does a male cat start spraying the yard?

When your male cat reaches sexual maturity, he’s likely to start spraying your home and yard with stinky urine to establish his turf and ward off strange males. In rare instances, males don’t spray, but most will start sooner rather than later if they remain intact.

Can a neutered cat still be dominant over a female?

If you have multiple cats, neutering just one may not change dominant behavior — you have to go all-in. A single unfixed cat, male or female, can influence the behavior of every other cat in the mix. Even a neutered cat may try to mount a female or demonstrate dominance over a non-neutered male.
