Thanks to everyone for your advice. From what I have read, I think that
he is not spraying. Maybe marking (thank God he hasn't felt the need to
claim me!) or peeing but not spraying. I called the vet about having
him neutered and they said he has to have a rabies shot and distemper.
I am not sure how I feel about this. He is not going out so I hate to
give him anything he won't need. They didn't gibe him these shots the
last time he was there because of his fever. Guess I have to do it
though. Thanks again to everyone.

had PEED on ME in my bed! He got neutered the next day! He has NEVER gone
box since. In his case, it was a marking behavior.
That being said, spraying is when they back up to something and are standing
their tail raised, and spraying urine out behind them on a vertical surface
usually shakes when they do it). Peeing is when they squat. Both can be marking
behaviors, not necessarily health problems. 8-9-10 months is that age where
often begin, as he's going through puberty at that age.
