I have a eight month old male american shorthair tabby, named Rafiki, I picked him up from a riding camp when he was a month old. We have two other female cats in our household, all are strictly indoor cats, our females are declawed and spayed and we followed suit with Rafiki. We declawed him first, as he was destroying our furniture, then as soon as he hit appropiate age we nutered him. For a while everything was fine, but recently, in the past month, he has started to pee on my parents bed, as they sleep in the night. He only sprays, as far as we can tell, in my parents room and on an old couch we have in our attic. Both places are favorite places of all the cats and they can fight pver them for oong periods of time. My females appear to live agreeably and hardly fight, my male appears to be the dominant territorial type.

My dad was never much for the cat and would leap at the opportunity to give him away, which I would hate along with my borther and mom. I really need this problem to stop and your help would be most appreciated. Please give me ideas on how to stop the spraying or if you think he might have some sickness or disease causeing him to spray. Thanks very much!!!!

Welcome to the site. My neutered male has also sprayed, bue he was neutered at about 1 year. Make sure that there isn't an underlying medical condition first, which means a trip to the vet. If it is in fact behavioural (as it was with my Oliver) then you have to get rid of the urine smell with something like Simple Solution. You should try using Feliway spray which mimics cat pheromones and helps reduce spraying. Also check out this site:

Don't give up, I know it's a really lousy thing to have to deal with but with patience you should be able to solve the problem.
