Firstly cats contained by shelters need homes most of all, and every unneccesary new kitten take a place that one of these already existing homeless cats could have had.
Aside from that, it's not that every cat in existence should be spayed/neutered, but individuals who have bought a cat to have as a pet generally don't want/intend for have kittens.
Breeders who have made a conscious decision to breed cats and have the ease and experience to do so properly (whether they be purebreds or moggies) can continue to do so. These people will be fully prepared to care for kittens, including self financially ready.
The problem is that a lot of cat owners just don't both to bring their cats neutered, and this results in unwanted litters which the owners often don't know how to thought for, struggle to find homes for, and (in some horrible cases) will have killed to avoid the trouble. It is this kind of breeding which is unnacceptable and could be prevented by neuter.
It's like saying why should people use contraception and what whether humans died out! That wouldn't happen because there will always be folks who have kids intentionally when they are ready and capable of kindly for them. :)
Answers: Well, first of all, in that are THOUSANDS of cats and kittens that are put to sleep in shelters every single day. Those are the few that are caught and surrendered. There is no shortage of cats, there are plentiful more left outdoors to multiply and keep the population going. I don't think ALL cats must be spayed or neuter though. I have a neutered male cat and I adopt an unspayed female cat about a year ago now. I planned on keeping her as is, unspayed. I know she could not get pregnant since my boy cat is neutered. However, she was extremely piercing and annoying so I had her spayed about a month ago. Since then she is a much happier cat, she even plays more. The problem is, most folks are not that careful with their cats and theres a good prospect that the cat will run outside and get pregnant or get another cat pregnant.
Not adjectives cats, just pet cats, the purebred breeding should continue, not the moggy breeding...if we be to stop breeding purebred cats, eventually all cats would look the same because of the blending of genes...just similar to people are all going to have alike colour hair/skin one day...
All cats will never be, and they are way too lots cats on the streets and in shelters. What would you do with those kittens? Sell them. Isn't it better for the customer to buy a cat that's already within the world?
The pet population is kind of going crazy, so more and more populace are encouraging spaying and neutering. However, obviously not everyone is going to do that, so the pet population should be fine.
There are plenty of stray cats that won't let it happen, But the responsible pet owner will have his cat neuter and spayed so they are not contributing to the shelters/pet shops or strays.
Only those dedicated to improving purebred cats should breed them - they take the time to assess their cats, get proper care, study pedigrees, show them and only breed the best to the best on a predetermined basis. Their pets are spayed/neutered before being placed.
There will never be a time when EVERYONE gets their cats fixed, and not every cat has a owner. So, I don't think the cat population is surrounded by much trouble.
because there are certain body parts on a cat that own to go if they think they're going to live contained by my house. It recently occurred to me that I have a 9 month out-of-date kitten who is still totally "in-tact" and we gotta do something about her.
the cat population will never die out. there are so many unwanted,ill treated,abused dumped,homeless cats (poor things!).
