to neuter or not to neuter

post #1 of 5

Hello everyone,

Keegan is a 17 week old Pure Breed Blue point CFA registered Himalyan Kitten. That being said, I am not planning to breed him. He is strictly a companion....or at least for now. What do you guys think?

2. Please make sure to spay and neuter your cat. Unless you are a professional breeder and your cat is part of a professional breeding program, please educate yourself to the importance of spaying and neutering by the time your cat is 4-6 months old. By spaying and neutering you enhance your cat's quality of life and improve his or her health. You are also proving your love for cats because in acting as a responsible pet owner you are minimizing the problem of cat overpopulation.

Just cause a cat is a purbred with papers doesn't mean its a cat to breed. IMO only the best examples of the breed should be in a breeding program. I'm sure he's a wonderful kitten.

Where did you get him from? Most breeders will tell you if the quality is there and most will have a spay/neuter agreement when they sell the kitten. IF you bought this kitten without breeding rights (CFA papers would say "not for breeding"), then you need to neuter him now and have a loved pet.

If you bought the kitten from a backyard breeder or a pet shop - by all means - this cat SHOULD be neutered immediately!

You really don't want to deal with a spraying male and unbred males are subject to cancers. Since you are not "into breeding" - then neuter him - both him and you will be a lot happier.
