cat crying

i have a 1.5yo male cat that keeps crying all day and night for a week now. he's being well fed, spoiled and m not sure what is wrong or how to help him and his crying is really loud and disturbing.

he's here with 2 other females that just gave birth to 4 kittens each. and they don't play with him anymore and beat him when he gets close, and the only way i found to make him stop crying is to go out with him in the balcony nd just sit there. he does nothing but also sit there. if i get back inside he gets in and continues crying out loud.

hi Yasser....is your cat neutered?

Is he neutered?  If not, someone nearby might be in heat.

If you cat is not neutered, he will cry. my female cat used to do it all the time and we got her fixed. and now she doesn't do it.

no he's not. i already have 2 girls here with him, and they have kittens now.. i don think they're in heat.. or did you mean that he is in heat? cause they won't let him close to them at all since they gave birth.. would it be a cat on the street that he heard? and how can i solve this problem? no i don wanna "fix" my cat i really dislike the idea.  any other solutions?

the females do not need to be in heat to bother the male....he is still howling b/c he is sexually frustrated, he smells them plus any other female within miles around...
he will continue to cry/howl until he is fixed...also you run the risk of him beginning to spray &/or pee throughout the house if he hasn't already started. he also runs a higher risk of prostrate cancer as he ages plus the good chance of getting injured in fights between him and the females, and YES this will happen.
do the poor boy a big favor and have him neutered, also I beg you to please stop the mating and birthing of more kittens, I know you must love them but are you able to keep them all or find them good loving homes..there are so many unwanted little ones born each day that I am very against unnecessary breeding....

so the howling is only about sexual frustration. correct? wouldn't be anything else.

sure it could be from other reasons...the number one that is most likely is sexual b/c he's not fixed. but of course it could be medical too.OR BOTH..do you feed him dry food? male cats are very prone to crystals in their urine that can block off the urinary tract...due to a high PH caused by dry food, its not real common in males only 1.5 yrs old but its sure a possibility, this is a very painful and dangerous condition. Is he peeing lots or only small amounts and real often? those are two signs. is he howling when he goes to his litter box and appears to strain when passing urine?

Is he going to the bathroom ok? Recently discovered that my 18yr old cat that has been howling for years has issues with constipation. But I also have a unaltered male kitty in the house and he howls a lot!

Yasser, when I used to show cats, they would put the neuters in a different group than the unaltered males, and a judge once said to me it was because the neuters look so much better that they weren't allowed to compete with the un-altered males.  They are happier, healthier, and less miserable over the issue of whether they cannot be out mating.  Please rethink your ideas about neutering, it is not like a person, the cat does not miss his testicles.  And don't forget the horrible odor of the cat's pee when he is not neutered, it is going to make your apartment (and you) smell.
