I am an absolute animal lover. In my younger days, I got a cat for companionship. Pepper was sweet and affectionate. He would do funny antics that only cats can do. Being young and uninformed about male cats, I found out what happens when you don't have your cat neutered. I was attacked one evening after coming home from work. I was bitten on my calf. I had animal control come and remove Pepper.
It wasn't his fault, but my own. He had to be put down and tested for rabies. I really loved that cat. I never really had any issues except for that one time. I now know you must have your male cats neutered. R.I.P. Pepper
