Quoting aubriesmom:" so i think im going to get my cat fixed. not only for me but for her too. when she was born her mother ... [snip!] ... for the cat. this whole thing sounds stupid..i feel bad but i know i need to get it down. i never wanted to fix an animal"
Spaying(& Neutering) & never having had a Litter in Cats & Dogs has actually been shown to reduce the incidences of Cancer in them. The earlier it's done (starting around 6 Months old, or before a Females first Heat) the Better the Cancer Prevention.
Feline Leukemia is actually also a "Contactable"(from cat to cat) Virus, the same as Feline Aids. If a cat get's into a Fight they can contract it, if they're just friendly they can Contract it, far less Sex.
Fixing her will help prevent Cancer in her, & Keeping her inside the House will help to prevent her from passing on a Known Deadly Illness, far less getting another one since she's already Immune-Comprimised.
Spaying/Neutering is a Gift to your Pet. If there is nothing exceptionally worth passing On, & they're not in Perfect Health Physically & Genetically it is Not worth keeping them intact. They Deserve more! & For Cat Females sex is definitely not "Enjoyable" since a Male Cat's Penis essentially has Fish Hooks on it that Point Backwards!
