  1. At BlogPaws last year, I heard several cat bloggers arguing for waiting to spay/neuter. I suppose if you’ve adopted a cat and it’s indoor only, you can wait (the rationale was that it was better health-wise). But that doesn’t work outside of our homes. I brought Bear inside when he was about 8 months old and I was SHOCKED that the vet thought he was already pregnant (my fault … I thought he was a girl … she found out differently when they shaved him to do the ultrasound). Since he was older, I was scared we’d have to deal with spraying and other male behaviors for the month or so before he was neutered – but we had ZERO problems … including in litter box training. It breaks my heart that so many cats never know the love of a forever home. We owe it to them to make that a reality. When I think of all the ways Bear’s changed my life for the better, I cry for humanity and all the lost potential as well.

      I absolutely love the way you phrased this. It breaks my heart to think that so many cats never know the love of a forever home. Maybe we shud start a campaign on that theme. Can’t believe bloggers would argue in favor of holding off – do they know anything about cats?? Bear is such a cutey, glad everything has worked out for him.

    That makes sense, but we often have to do it when we can get them trapped, regardless of age.

    I think this is a great idea. We are lucky where I live to have many low cost options available. We can even trap ferals and get them fixed for $30 at the local shelter.
