I have a 9 year old DSH kitty who is the matriarch of our kitty family. Mostly we've managed to keep her "not pregnant" but at this point in time, I can't let her have another litter. I'm considering getting her fixed, but I'm wondering if there are any major problem with spaying at this late date. She's always been high strung and independent and honestly, she's quite snotty. Recently, she's calmed somewhat...she'll come looking for affection which she never used to do. I'd have to think that the risks of anesthesia are higher given her age, but being a mama cat all her life isn't cool either. I'm in a quandry.
