Are you open to the idea of spaying or neutering your pet cat?

    My cats are the heart of me and I could never do it to my own cats.

    The best favour you can do your cats is to spay or neuter them. They live longer and are less susceptible to diseases.

    I agree with Uninvited Writer. Additionally, they become less moody, territorial, and more even tempered. The urge to run about outside is also severely reducted, along with eliminating any risks for mating if they ever should make it out.

    Yes, Bob Barker told me to do it every day for decades. It's been implanted in my brain.

    Yes, and why wouldn't you want to spay or neuter your cat? The purpose is to prevent unwanted litters. It does not harm them.

    God appointed us as stewards of His creation. We should do what we need to do to provide for animal welfare. Reproductive rights do not belong to animals. They do not care about their sexual status.

    All of my pets have been spayed or neutered because most of them have been adopted from animal shelters which require it.

    I absolutely do spay or neuter all of my dogs and cats. It is a little scary and traumatic probably more for me than them. If there was another method for preventing unwanted litters, I would consider it, but this is the best way readily available. I feel that it is my responsibility as their custodian, to see that they do not contribute to pet overpopulation.

    I actually think that cats are better off being spayed and neutered. It's healthier for them: did you know that female cats that are NOT spayed have a larger risk of getting mammary cancer? I adopted one of my cats when she was 2 years old (and she wasn't neutered), the more times they are in heat before they are spayed means the greater the risk of getting cancer. She developed tumors 4 years later and shortly after passed away.

    I also believe that it's humane to have them neutered, otherwise they spend time each month in heat. I don't think being in heat is a fun or comfortable experience for them. There is also a huge cat overpopulation. Why would you risk bringing more cats into the world, when thousands are killed every day (even kittens) because nobody wants them.
