I have 2 male indoor cats. Both are not neutered. My oldest is 3 years old and we got him when he was 1 week old. A feral cat had a litter of kittens in my neighbors barn, left one day and never came back. I hand fed him until he was old enough to eat himself. He is very healthy and happy. My youngest cat is almost 2 years old. We found him when he was 2 weeks old, in a box in the middle of a shopping center parking lot in 110 heat. We thought he was dead (he almost was). We took him to a vet and they didn't think he would survive. We took him home and I hand fed him with an eye dropper and nursed him back to health. He too is happy and very healthy. They are best buds and get along better than any cats I have ever seen. Neither of them want anything to do with going outside, in fact they are afraid and run away when we open the door.
My cats have NEVER, EVER sprayed anywhere at anytime in our home. They don't howl, they are both very sweet and gentle and mild mannered. They don't even seem to care when the neighbors female cat comes up to the back door and or windows and they sit there and just look at her, yawn, then take a nap, haha.
I have heard horror stories about the smell of un fixed male cat urine, aggressive behavior etc. I can't even imagine it because I have never experienced any of it. Maybe I'm just lucky to have perfect cats? It is possible for there to be no reason to put your cats through an unnecessary operation. My husband and I talk about it all the time and honestly, there's no need for it. The only thing it may do is change their personality, that's what our vet said. We have decided to leave them intact and happy. We love our boys the way they are! =)
