Anonymous: Hello everyone!
My kitty Bodger is 10 years old. He's a sweetie but sometimes naughty and mischievous as keeps spraying in the house. Can I neuter him at this old age? Will it help improve his behavior? Thanks in advance.
He can be neutered at his age, unfortunately it probably won't change his spraying behaviour. Spraying has now become an ingrained habit for him, so chances are pretty slim that he will stop. However, there is always a possibility that it may help, so the choice is yours to make.
Myself, I wouldn't neuter a cat at this age because the chances that he change his behaviour are little while you'll cause him much stress, not to mention that any operation - even such a simple and known one - is a risk, especially for elderly animals.
