When it comes to cat fights, we all know how loud and unpleasant they can be. And a lot of the time, if you get two kitties in a scrap, it'll be a pair of un-neutered toms. That's why, as someone who's owned two male cats in her life, I recommend you get your lad neutered.
First and foremost, if you neuter your cat, he can't get any other cats pregnant, which means you won't be adding to the unwanted population of cats and kittens in the world! (Remember: adopt, don't shop!)
You'll also reduce the amount of anti-social behaviour your boy might be getting up to around the house, such as spraying where he shouldn't be. Neutered toms are less fussed about marking their territory and their urine smells slightly better, comparatively speaking!
Next, a neutered tom is far less likely to get into scraps with other cats around the neighbourhood. If he has less testosterone in him, he won't care about any un-neutered queens about the town and so he won't go out of his way to batter the other boys, which means less pain for him and less stress for you!
Finally, if you neuter your cat, he'll be safe from the risk of testicular cancer for the rest of his life. After all, you can't develop cancer in an organ you don't own any more!
Neuter your cat. It's the right thing to do!
