Many vets and animal lovers say it is actually better for the pet and its owner if you spay or neuter your cat. It will help with behavioral issues in the future. Also helps your cat live a longer and healthier life. With the way the male cats spray smells is awful and its scent is difficult to get out. I agree with getting your pets fixed does help keep your house cats alive longer, and helps the cats from always wanting to tap into their wild sides. I have had one male cat fixed and one fixed female in my past. The girl i still have now, but the male has gotten lost in the outdoors. Getting the cats fixed really made the cats settle down, but I am not sure if it helped with taming their wild side. Every cats dream is to go outside and catch a bird and run free in the wild. Every cat wants to be a lion.
