Default Does a newly neutered male cat need to be kept separate

from any unspayed females for any period of time post-neuter? I've
heard that viable sperm may remain in the male's plumbing for a period
of time and as a result, the cat should be maintained separate from a
female in
heat.

(The female will be spayed as well. This is a timing question only!)

Thanks!

Yes! the male should be separated for about 2 months. Yours in Purrs.

Congrats on your new additions. The answer is no, according to my
vet because I had the same question. Once neutered he can no longer
impregnate a female. The hormones may linger a while, but not
sperm.

I see that our Vets disagree on this.I would err on the side of
caution and have the cat separated for about 2 months from a fertile
female. When in doubt maybe we should get a third opinion. Yours in
