Hello Ive had my cat for about 2 years now and we got him fixed. We now have brought in 2 new kittens and he is spraying again! How do we make him stop?!?

And how did you introduce them? Did you plunk the new kittens down in the middle of the living room and expect them to be friends? New pets need to be introduced gradually. Take the kittens and put them in their own room with food and litter, and close the door. Look up 'proper cat integration'. Jackson Galaxy has excellent advice. The your cat will need about 2 weeks to get used to the newcomers. Have the kittens been to the vet for testing for FeLV/FIV? Wormed and flea treated? Go back, and start over. Clean the areas he has sprayed thoroughly with an enzymatic cleaner like Nature's Miracle (pet store or Walmart). Get a gallon and soak all the spots.

Take the kittens back. If one is a female you may be able to keep that one, but if either are males, this behavior may continue.

He's spraying as a warning to these kittens that it's HIS territory, not theirs. The kittens will never feel comfortable and may start marking around your home as well, in order to try and get some turf of their own and your whole home is going to wreak of cat pee.
You need to start the introduction process all over again. Your cat needs to feel safe and like it's HIS home without having to claim it. He needs to learn how to share it, but sometimes, this doesn't happen all the time. He may still mark, even if he learns to tolerate the kittens or once he accepts them, he may stop.
But start introducing again, the SLOW way.
