Today I will discuss with you about 8 reasons why do we get our cat neutered? This is a very sensitive topic because I will divide this into two groups. Removing the male cat’s reproductive system i.e. testicles is called neutering.

The first group says that you shouldn’t get neutering. The reason behind this is that the animal will stay free because after neutering the animal is unable to mate.

The second group says that you should get neutering because it has some medical benefits. But I will tell you those facts which are medically approved. We will discuss this in detail.

Let’s begin.

When male cats become adults or hit puberty then, they start bugging everyone. Their Testosterone hormones increase and it causes such problems and signs by which the owner often gets annoyed.

What Are Those Signs?

1. Vocalization

Basically, to control noisiness meaning to control vocalization, neutering is done. When male cats are on heat, they often vocalize and they scream and speak loudly and because of that often the owner gets irritated.

If they don’t get vaccinated and a viral disease hits, then mostly the kittens die due to environmental pressures.

For example, if it’s very cold then no one is there to take care of them.

7. Cat Fight

Mostly when the male cats are in the puberty stage, they go outside and fight because they have aggression in them due to the testosterone hormones being high. To release that aggression they fight. This is the reason they fight when they go outside.
