Spaying is a must

Myths about cats spaying :


1 - Preventing cats from giving birth is against nature.


Fact: We have been involved in the breeding of cats for roughly 8000 years, and by getting involved we have caused overpopulation of cats.

What is really against nature is stray animals, which will result in them getting tortured and killed on a daily basis because cities are not their natural habitat.


2 - Cats gain weight and become lazy after spaying.

Fact: The reason for the obesity of cats is frequent eating + lack of movement. If you notice some weight gain on your cat after the operation, just reduce the number of calories consumed and spend more time playing with it.


3 - Cat's behavior changes greatly after spaying.

Fact: Spaying also reduces aggressive behavior and cat fighting. But There is a chance for a behavioral change usually with older males who get spayed. Also If you spay male before puberty, he won't even spay.

4 - Sterilization will lead to "extinction of animals"

Fact: Cats and dogs give birth twice a year from 5 to 10 at a time, and if we calculate it, we will end up with an enormous number.


Timing and the appropriate age for the operation:

The procedure is not specified to a certain age you can perform it after your cat reaches

2 - After bringing them home, keep them in a quiet and clean room. isolate them from other animals or children.


3 - Minimize their movement as much as possible and prevent them from walking around the house and climbing the stairs else the stitches will open. Also, place their food and sandbox in the same room as them.


4 - After an hour give them water and feed them low-fat yogurt in small amounts and keep feeding them moist food and avoid dry food as much as possible.


5 - The sewing site should be sterilized twice a day with anti-sprays, to protect the wound from infection.
