If you’re under the impression keeping your cat intact is the kinder choice, you’re dooming your cat to a life of frustration and being at the mercy of his or her hormones. Intact male cats will spray inside your home, leaving a foul smelling odor on your floors, furniture and belongings. They will become aggressive and act out, whether it's physically towards you and your family or on your furniture; either way destruction is inevitable. Both male and female cats will be on a mission to roam and will likely result in your cat escaping the home to seek out a mate. Once your cat escapes, it will likely procreate and can even end up in a dangerous territory dispute with other hormonal cats that can result in injury, or even worse, a fatality.
The decision to spay or neuter your cat will be one of the best decisions you make regarding your cat’s health and welfare and will not only benefit your cat, but it will benefit you too.
