To put it simply, if a cat can pee, then they can still spray. Regardless if they have been spayed or not, nothing can physically stop a cat from spraying.

Spaying (or neutering) is the removal of an animal’s reproductive organ. This involves either all of it being removed or a considerably large part. In females, this involves the removal of the ovaries or uterus as a method of birth control.

This process doesn’t interfere with a cat’s ability to pee which ultimately means a cat can still spray. No matter what any vet or “guru” told you, spaying isn’t the answer to all of your cat problems.

Many people believe that if they get their cat neutered, then they’ll instantly stop spraying. However, this is not always the case. In most cases, spaying will stop a cat from spraying, especially if they are female. But sometimes it’s just a temporary solution and a cat can start spraying again due to reasons we’ll cover later.

The aim of spaying is to reduce the amount of hormones they produce and therefore the need for them to attract a mate. If you take away their reproductive system and hormones, then they’ll surely stop spraying right?

Why Do Female Cats Spray After Being Fixed?

To answer the question “do female cats spray after being fixed?” we need to take a look at why cats spray in the first place.

Cats can spray for many different reasons and not all of them are related to attracting a mate. In fact, sometimes a cat can spray when they have medical problems such as an infection (UTI) or feline idiopathic cystitis (FIC). If you suspect your cat is having trouble peeing and is not using their litter tray, then it’s best to take them for a checkup. The last thing you want to do is assume they are spraying when really they are crying for help!

Other reasons cats might start to spray after being spaying include behavioral issues such as such as being stressed or threatened by cats in the neighborhood. Cats are very territorial animals and mark their territory by spraying on walls and furniture. If your cat starts to feel threatened or insecure, then they will often spray to make themselves feel safer.

If your neighbor has a new kitty or you notice a lot of other cats around your area, then your cat could be trying to scare them off. By spraying inside and around your house, they are basically telling other cats to stay away. This means no matter if your cat has been spayed, they will still spray if they feel in danger.

Lots of other big cats do this in the wild, and it works wonders. However, for a domestic house cat that spends most of their time inside, it’s really not necessary and can cause owners lots of stress.
