    I'm pretty sure it's not possible... but I got my cat fixed a few months ago. And when I woke up this morning, I started to make my bed and noticed there was this wet spot over toward the foot of the bed. At first I thought it was pee, which my cat never pees on my bed... but then I smelled it, and it didn't smell like pee, but smelled kind of like the other stuff. Is this even possible? I've never even had this problem before he was fixed. Please help.

    Well they can still get erect, and neutered male cats have been know to umm, masturbate with sheets, stuffed toys, couches etc...so I would say yes.

    From some quick googling it sounds like the 'fluid' might reduce in quantity as he ages.

    How much fluid did you find? I wouldn't think even an intact cat would produce very much. Are you sure it wasn't drool or spit or something??

    Here's one from http://www.vetinfo4cats.com/cmale.html#Masturbation

    Thanks for the reply... but I don't understand, because if a cat is neutered, that mean he doesn't have balls. And if he doesn't have balls, how does he produce anything... or even have a sex drive at all? Isn't the whole purpose of getting neutered to eliminate these things?

    A neutered cat can't produce sperm or testosterone, since he doesn't have any testicles. They do still have a prostate, which I believe is where the majority of the fluid comes from.

    He doesn't necessarily have a sex 'drive' per se, but all that had to happen was for him to accidentally find out that a particular activity felt good and then he's likely to do it again.

    Shouldn't have drive or sign of "sack in the back". I have heard of a few incomplete fixes before, unfortunately to many times!
