Neutered male

Hi Cybervet,
My neighbour found her male kitten at 3 months in the bush next to our complex. She adopted him and had him neutered at 6 months. He dissappeard for a day and was told by someone who has had many male cats that even if they are neutered, if there is a female on heat they still respond and go looking for her. I would have thought if males are neutered this would eliminate roaming for mates. Is this true?
thanks

Hiow long ago was he neutered? If only a few weeks or so ago the testestorone still has to work its way out its body. I had a cat which came here out of the blue, bulied all my cats, had him neutered and it took him another 3 months before he calmed down. (He never left by the way and became the sweetest lapcat you could ask for.) It is mating time!
