Male cats that are neutered CAN’T get testicular cancer, and they live 40% longer than their unneutered counterparts.1 Unneutered male cats respond to the “call of the wild” and their desire to wander is fierce. Unneutered male cats may become aggressive toward other cats, increasing their risk of injury and becoming infected with feline leukemia and/or feline immunodeficiency virus. And don’t forget: unneutered male cats tend to spray urine, which STINKS!
Aside from the important medical reasons for spaying or neutering, there is also a serious overpopulation problem in the United States. An average cat has 1–8 kittens per litter, and 2–3 litters per year. During her productive life, one female cat could have more than 100 kittens. A single pair of cats and their kittens can produce as many as 420,000 kittens in just 7 years.2
Over 12 million unwanted dogs and cats are euthanized each year, and even more are abandoned.1 If you have any questions about spaying or neutering, please contact your veterinarian—the key resource for information about the health and well-being of your best friend.
As for this stray pregnant
cat keeping yours up all night. IF his testosterone wasn't kicking in quite as much as it is with a female around then chances are he would not be acting the way he is. Intact males always react a lot more so to other cats than do altered males. It is NOT her fault she is in the situation she is. Most likely her callous owner put her outside when she was in heat so they could sleep at night without listening to her howls. Once they figured she was pregnant they weren't about to let her back in. Why do the responsible thing after all?
