Just get them desexed. Our baby kitty peed on everything till we got him fixed.

Getting them both neutered will certainly help. Cats urinate to mark their territory. However it could also be that he’s trying to establish territory in the home since he was probably top cat over the other one before.Look up Jackson Galaxy. He’s dealt with a lot of cases like this.

Get them fixed!  That should do it.  Please don’t give the poor babies away ๐Ÿ™  Especially since they get along well with your other pets.  Poor things deserve a stable loving home ๐Ÿ™

Have you taken them to the vet at all since you’ve adopted them?

juneberries:  Yes, getting them fixed should stop it (and it’s a good idea anyway).

I’m glad you are getting them neutered! I would be really surprised if that doesn’t fix your problems. Good for you for taking in these kitties ๐Ÿ™‚

Getting them fixed should definitely help! And it’s just good practice anyway.

Just an FYI. After fixing them the spray/ urine might still have an odor for a week or so, can’t you make them outdoor/indoor cats. That smell will linger in your house.

I’ve had dozens of cats in my lifetime (we’re rescue/foster parents) and male cats typically spray a lot when they’re not fixed.  When you get them fixed they should stop unless there is some other problem, such as them not liking the litter, it not being kept clean enough or them being threatened near the box.  The only time we’ve had consistent peeing was when we had one cat that would hide in a little hidey-hole near the litter box and attack our one timid girl when she went to go.  That made her terrified to go so she’d pee in other locations.  Make sure none of that is happening! ๐Ÿ™‚  If you have more questions, feel free to PM.  I love sharing my cat knowledge.

Get them neutered for sure!  If that doesn’t help, it may be stress, so trying something like Feliway plug-ins or Zylkene capsules should chill them out.  Also, make sure you use a biological detergent to wash anything they’ve sprayed on to prevent re-marking.

You’ve done a good thing. All my animals are neutered, including the one with an impressive pedigree. There are just too many unwanted animals in the world
