We are often asked the question: "Is it necessary to sterilize a cat? Will it harm her health? Maybe it is worth letting her giving birth at least once? And in general I feel sorry for her ..."
I will try to answer these questions in more detail.
The purpose of a cat's life is motherhood. This is how nature arranged it. The better the living conditions of the cat, the more frequent estrus and desirable are kittens.
Every estrus of a cat in nature ends in pregnancy.
A domestic cat will not only drive you crazy with its screams, but it will also stop eating and sleeping. The level of hormones in the blood makes the desire for motherhood a fixed idea.
The cat has no desire to act this way, all she wants is pregnancy and babies. Any breeder will tell you how the cat changes as soon as she gets pregnant. She exudes calmness, serenity, and happiness.
Be merciful to your pet. Let her lead a happy and carefree life, or let her be a mother.
Reasons for neutering cats
Unneutered male cats are likely to stray over a large area, will mark their territory with a very pungent spray and are much more likely to fight – with attendant noise nuisance. Unneutered male cats will wander from home and may not return. They may also spray inside the home and may be aggressive to their owners. Therefore it is desirable to neuter kittens early enough to ensure that the above problems are prevented.
Prevents side effects of heat
When female cats are in heat, which can occur every three weeks during a breeding season, depending on your cat's cycle, they will become very loud, bleed and frequently urinate in order to attract males. These effects can be a nuisance in your home and neighborhood.
Owners that spay their female kitten before her first heat can help to prevent diseases like mammary and ovarian cancer and uterine infections which are highly fatal in cats. For male cats, neutering before the kitten is six months old can prevent testicular cancer.
Spaying and neutering is not unhealthy: Any loss of energy levels due to spaying and neutering a cat are minimal and will not cause obesity. Overfeeding and lack of exercise are the main causes of weight gain and can be easily prevented with a healthy diet and active lifestyle. Neutering creates a less allergenic cat: Studies have shown that a neutered male cat may cause less allergic reactions in humans due to a drop in hormones that causes major cat allergens.
