Needless to castrate or sterilize your favorite cat?

  Needless to castrate or sterilize your favorite cat? Eighteen months ago, his son brought home a kitten. But such tiny ones, helpless, weak, and so much more he had. Kitty had to wash and disinfect. At first I was categorical - carries. But, seeing and knowing that the child is difficult to give up the animal, which he has already brought home, I decided - let it stay. So the kitten stayed with us.

Of course, everything you need, we did: washed, showed veterinarians, were vaccinated. Everything was normal. After 11 months, spring has come. And the problems started. Since the cat was living at home (rarely go outside - it was his wish), he also became a mark HOMES. And he did not care where it is done on a carpet or a chair ... two days later began appearing smell. A search for the cat was found. They sent me a cat for two days. Cat calmed down, our cat is not in what. It became clear that one it will be enough. And he does not want to look. Add songs. He would sit at the window, but how would sing! And most importantly, when the sleepy most. Collected council decided to castration. And not sterilization, namely castration. I had to learn many interesting than now I want to share with you.

  What is the difference between castration and sterilization?
Do cats when castration testicles are removed through two small incisions on the scrotum. And when sterilization simply tie up the spermatic cord.

Sterilization is less dangerous operation, but it does not take away your problems with the animals during explicit sexual attraction. That is, males continue to aim and "yelling". In the case of sterilization, they simply do not give offspring. Therefore, sterilize the cat does not make sense. Castration more dangerous operation, especially for cats. Are possible consequences. For example, infections of urinary organs or mammary tumors. Therefore recommend castration cats.

  When do the operation?
There are generally two sevens - with seven months to seven years. So, with 7 months can already do an operation, with the exception of representatives of strange, "synthetic" rocks, whose puberty is delayed.
But we, for example, hoped all the same not to interfere with privacy the cat until not yet begun to show signs of sexual attraction. Until recently, believed that the handle drops, pills, de-energize. However, this did not help.

  Important Kota desirable castrate before mating. We, incidentally, that did not immediately know, and we even vets were not warned about this. And now our cat (he has something with the cat all came together, and one kitten was the spitting image of our Mussolini), periodically appears desire, less pronounced, but it did not disappear entirely. As it turned out, the development of male sex hormones produced pituitary gland (to us then it is explained), and its something no one removed. In general, the cat remembers how it was, and wants to repeat.

  Where do the operation? As always have a choice. You can make a veterinary clinic. The operation takes an average of about 20-30 minutes. However, the animal is an additional stress (if the animal is still nowhere exported). But you can carry out the operation at home, but on condition that you are willing to stay close during the operation and the first three or four hours next to the animals permanently.
In any case, care would have, either alone or in the dressing carry the clinic.

  What should necessarily take into account? Be prepared for the fact that:
1. After surgery, the animal must provide quiet and peaceful place . One of the best options would be to lay a towel in the bathroom next to the battery (a warm place). And be sure to follow the animal until after the anesthesia.
Our cat did not want to lie. He wanted to climb higher up (on the stove, a favorite window, it is rather dangerous for the animal, which is under anesthesia), so I, for example, held his first 30 minutes on his hands, and put in a cage I just did not lift his hand .

2. Do cats cats- very rough tongue And usually they are not licking their wounds. However, whether our cat is not quite normal, or what, but he was still under anesthesia, constantly trying to lick the operated position. And razlizyval wound up blood. Therefore, we done to their cat special pants from common childhood diapers (cut a hole for the tail), which he did not take off.
3. The next day after the operation will have 11,111,126. once a day for two or three days to process 11,111,127. peroxide, streptocide or green paint (if you own - must be kept, and exercise is not for the faint-hearted people). BEST in this case, consult a veterinarian.

4. The animal at this time 11,111,126. can be very ill 11,111,127. And may already be on the third day play with you. Our cat, for example, did not want us to see the first two days, and only on the third day early in the morning got to me and began to purr. I was incredibly happy, because when the cat purrs, it means he is moving towards recovery.

5. Temperature and inflammatory processes are rare. However, this needs to be monitored. The temperature of the (strong) it is desirable to shoot down.

6. Better not to castrate the "neighborhood" cat, and yes even in the age of two years. Why? If the animal is accustomed to walking, then after the operation, this desire does not disappear! Moreover, it will manifest itself more strongly. Cat immediately after the operation begins to burst into the street, and there is high probability of catching an infection. Especially to wash the animal at this time is not recommended, but on the street, he always stain. This blunder allowed our neighbors. They decided to castrate his adult street cat. Cat recovering much harder, and the owners having trouble with it. House could not leave, he plaintively cried, had to go, home is dirty, it was not easy to handle.

7. After castration (sterilization) the animal will have 11,111,126. 11,111,127 feed. Special dietary forage . And almost completely eliminate fish (raw fish and meat in general can not give - provoking urolithiasis). Be sure to follow the normal feed, and the constant presence of water.

8. It is equally important to decide: What is you will be [b] 11,111,127 feed. . Combining domestic food and feed is not recommended veterinarians. Either the food home (meat, poultry, vegetables, cereals, dairy products), or any wet food, which can be prevented urolithiasis. It is best to buy special diet food (wet or dry). After this feed, please try to give any other. And you realize that your cat knows what he likes more. Our cats get to eat any food is difficult.

9. Important In the process of life to observe the pelvic area, cats palpate for nodes and tumors. Special inspection in the veterinary clinic is enough to hold twice a year.

In any case, before deciding, weigh all the pros and cons! Of course, when the animal gets used to live at home, next to you, it is unlikely you would like to let him into the street and then rinse it every time (when he returns with walks) ... Yes, and it is harmful to animals. And if you have a cat, and every time you're wondering what to do with kittens, it is still good if you are distributing them in "good hands". Still the best way in such cases, castration done.

Also, remember, and that at maturity the cat may become aggressive, this may be suffering from all members of the household, especially children, which is easier to run at the corner.

Moreover, there are many positive sides, which gives such an operation. First, castrated male domestic cat live much longer, because he does not run everywhere, not fight with the various cats and do not eat on the street horrible. Castrated male rarely suffers from various, including non-communicable diseases. Paradoxically, castration makes life more fulfilling domestic cat and healthy. And these cats to old age are kittens - igruchimi and affectionate. Our Musik almost two years, but the game - his favorite thing, but of affection, even nothing to add. For healthy and truly pet play times nicer and hug, and stroke, and generally co-exist with much more interesting!
