I have 11 month old cat and he has been spraying. I need to get him neutered but he has a heart murmur. Are there any alternatives?

Wanna hear a wild story???? (Don`t read any further if you are at all squimsh)
Years ago (when I was a teenager)I knew a girl who had several cats...and she fixed the males herself. I actually witnessed it....she had the cat on a towel in her lap while she was petting it...then she just reached down with a new razor blade and made 2 little slits in the bag, popped the testicles out and cut the cords...then gently pulled a bit on the cats tail to pull the cords back in. Took no time at all and the cat never even tried to get off her lap. It did little more than squirm a bit. Hardly any blood at all. She just continued to pet the cat and it acted as if nothing had even happened. I was in such total shock I could hardly believe my eye balls!
I would`nt attempt such a thing myself...but the experience does lead me to believe that this surgery could certainly be done with a local .
