Why does the owner of a cat circumcision it?
My neighbor kept a stray cat. She is a muslim. Why does she have to circumcision the cat ( male)? Is it compulsory?
After it was circumcised, the stray cat became plump and furry.
Is that a circumcision or family planning?? Hearing circumcision on an animal for first time
no family planning, my Malay neighbor told me that cats had to be fixed.
Neutering is very common and healthy dear.. I got two of my dogs neutered. First thing is safety during mating season. The next is when there are so many stray cats and dogs , its ethical to stop new births
That's not circumcision, it's neutering. It means the cat's testicles were removed, not its foreskin. I have 3 cats and I had one of them neutered so he wouldn't wander off during mating season. It has nothing to do with religion
thanks, your detail explanation, So no sperm, right?
Yes, it stops them from having sperm, reduces fighting, reduces urine marking, and makes them less likely to wander to find mates. It also sometimes makes them get plump and a little fluffier.
Both my cats have been "fixed" so there won't be any kittens. It's the humane thing to do, and as stated, it has nothing to do with religion.
thanks very much. So in other words, "Spayed" should be the word. That is good news
If the woman isn't native-born American, I'll bet she got "circumcision" mixed up with "neutering". It would be a natural language mistake.
peachy....male animals are "neutered." Female animals are "spayed." Both are done to prevent several things, but mainly reproduction. As MzB says, "It's the humane thing to do."
By the way...As long as the subject is cats.....PLEASE, please.....never have your kitty cat "De-clawed!!" That is so so cruel, unnecessary and a simply horrible thing to do to a cat. If you don't believe me....look it up, ask your Vet, check with cat experts, ask Jackson Galaxy...(My Cat From Hell)....Just PLEASE don't do it.
Look at it in the same way that you would a human being having his finger nails removed!
They do sell claw "protectors"...like little plastic caps that fit over your cat's claws. Keep you kitty's claws clipped, make sure they have a cat scratching post or something to claw at so they don't hurt your furniture.
I never touch my old cat's claws, why would anyone want to do that? cats are supposed to scratch right?
You would be shocked at the number of people who do this terrible thing to their kitties! Yes, of course cats need to scratch. Selfish lazy people do this to save their "furniture."....There are better ways to handle this w/o harming one's cat!

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.

For some time now, I've noticed that he drinks a lot more water than I'm used to seeing him drink, and sometimes he'll just lay around in front of his dish, only to drink more water before he either camps out again or...

Please reassure me that neutering my cats isn't going to make them become fearful and skittish. Our oldest male took a turn after neutering. Tell me about the process.

I just had a comment saying that spaying and neutering should be illegal because they are more complicated procedures than cropping and docking a dog's tail.Do you agree or disagree? I thought that it would be...

Why does my cat eat grass?My cat chews on grass when I take him outside (yes he walks on a leash!). I don't know if he swallows it or not. I usually pull him away before he has a chance to swallow it. Is he missing...
