Feline Overpopulation

and How You Can Help

There are more homeless kitties out there than households that can keep them.  Here are several reasons why you should pursue spaying or neutering for your cat, courtesy of the Pet Health Network.

"There are numerous reasons you should spay or neuter your cat! Let’s talk about health reasons first…

Female cats that are spayed CAN’T get uterine cancers; their risk of mammary (breast) cancer is reduced by 25%; and they are less prone to urinary tract infections and hormonal changes.

Male cats that are neutered CAN’T get testicular cancer, and they live 40% longer than their intact (not-neutered) counterparts. Intact male cats respond to the “call of the wild” and their desire to wander is fierce. Intact 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: intact 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.

Over 12 million unwanted dogs and cats are euthanized each year, and even more are abandoned."

Very nice experience. Friendly staff at front desk. Was great meeting the doctor and she was wonderful with Annie. Good information and I was thankful to know what was happening and to understand it is age related.
