Spaying and neutering are two of the most important things you can do for your cat’s health and well-being. Spaying is the surgical removal of the ovaries and uterus in a female cat, and neutering is the surgical removal of the testicles in a male cat. (Spay or Neuter Your Cats)
There are many reasons why you should spay or neuter your cat. Here are just a few:
- Reduces the number of unwanted cats. One of the main reasons to spay or neuter your cat is to help reduce the number of unwanted cats in the world. Every year, millions of cats are born into shelters, and many of them are euthanized because there are not enough homes for them. By spaying or neutering your cat, you can help prevent unwanted litters and make a difference in the number of cats that are euthanized each year.
- Improves your cat’s health. Spaying and neutering can also improve your cat’s health. Spaying can help prevent uterine infections, pyometra (a potentially fatal infection of the uterus), and breast cancer. Neutering can help prevent testicular cancer and prostate problems.
- Reduces behavioral problems. Spaying and neutering can also help reduce behavioral problems in cats. Intact male cats are more likely to spray urine to mark their territory, and they may also be more aggressive. Intact female cats may yowl and cry when they are in heat. By spaying or neutering your cat, you can help reduce these behavioral problems and make your home more peaceful.
- Is a relatively simple procedure. Spaying and neutering are both relatively simple procedures that can be done under general anesthesia. Most cats make a full recovery within a few days.
If you are thinking about getting a cat, please consider spaying or neutering your cat as soon as possible. It is one of the best things you can do for your cat’s health and well-being.
