    I guess I don't understand what is a "bit nasty" about getting a cat spayed.

    I live in the U.S., so I am unfamiliar with the numbers for Europe and countries therein - but here goes.

    Right now, in the U.S. there are over 100,000 cats looking for homes. A majority of them will be euthanized for no reason other then not having a home. The number of cats euthanized annually is well over 1,000,000.

    Spaying your cat will guarentee that it never get reproductive cancers (the rate of these types of cancers is higher in animals then humans) or pyrometria. Pyrometria is a rather lovely infection of the uterus. If not treated promptly, it is fatal.

    I have heard that if a female cat comes into heat and isn't bred, she will have another heat in about two weeks. Now, I could be wrong abou this - I have a male cat - but the last female cat that graced my house started howling when she was about 6 months old and howled for about 5 months until she went to live with my daughter's boyfriend.

    I'm spayed and I can promise you that the operation was painless, the recovery was uncomfortable but nothing that one couldn't live through.

    If you do get a female cat - do her a favor and have her spayed. I promise you will have a happier, healthier cat.

    Hey Draco I had similar problems but found an easy, quick and disposable solution . Just tear a small piece of Gaffer tape off a new roll (it's gotta be clean) and tape it over your kitties naughty spot . My Snuffle Kins took a while to get used to the hair loss when I took it off but she has a hard scab now so it doesn't hurt anymore! . Hope that helps!

    I have a better idea for that tape of yours...stick it over your mouth!
    think of all the fun you can have fun licking your cat's arse hair..you never know, you might even get a scab or two if you're really lucky!

    Thanks Sandi. To be honest I've never thought about it that way before. I may go for a rehomed cat again. I think they are normally 'done' before you get them.

    You're spayed? You didn't get it done by a veterinarian, did you?
