I understand why people are reluctant to spay or neuter their pets, I do.  They believe they’re doing something mean, depriving the animal of a natural part of life.  These same people are often the ones who think it’s unkind to keep a cat indoors.  “Let them have the fun.”
Even those who do intend to keep the cat inside soon face the problem of moaning and yowling when the female cat goes into heat, or urine marking and aggressiveness with the males and end up letting them out to avoid the consequences of keeping an fertile animal inside.
What happens is nature… any fertile animal capable of reproducing is going to reproduce.
An unspayed cat, her mate and their offspring can have 2 litters a year, with 2.8 surviving kittens.  That’s 11 thousand cats in 5 years, and 11 million cats in under 10 years.

Approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year. Of those, approximately 3.9 million are dogs and 3.4 million are cats.


Each year, approximately 2.7 million animals are euthanized (1.2 million dogs and 1.4 million cats).

This is the reality…

Multiplied by millions.  Millions of cats who will spend their lives in fear and hunger simply because we didn’t want to spay or neuter our pets.
There’s no excuse for causing so much suffering.
Spayed and neutered pets who live indoors are likely to live twice as long or more than outdoor pets, and are both healthier and happier.  Happier because they aren’t driven by urges they can’t fulfill.  Healthier because they eat regularly, don’t suffer the elements, and aren’t exposed to disease nearly as much as outdoor cats.
