Reproduction

  • A FEMALE CAT and her offspring can produce over 12,500 kittens in five years.
  • A great majority of them become homeless. The euthanasia of many thousands of unwanted cats and kittens takes place each year.
  • Having your cats spayed or neutered (altered, fixed) is a very important part of keeping them safe and happy.
  • A spayed or neutered animal can also be less territorial. If you have a male, that means he won’t urinate on your furniture and plants. They also are less likely to engage in fighting and are less likely to bite. Altered pets are less likely to roam, as they aren’t looking to mate. If they are at home with you and not trying to get out every time you open the door, they are safe from outside dangers such as cars, dogs, rabid animals and fleas or ticks.
  • Altered pets are also less likely to get certain cancers and will not add to the already unmanageable problem of pet overpopulation.
  • Spaying your female pet before their first heat reduces breast and uterine cancer.
  • Neutering your male pet can reduce prostate and testicular cancer.
  • It discourages cats from spraying.
  • Spaying/neutering means lower licensing fees.
  • There are less injuries from roaming and fighting, which means fewer vet bills.
  • It makes happier, healthier companions.
