Cats are warm blooded carnivorous mammals and they feed on protein-rich meat. They tend to be predators and generally prey on rats and also other rodents. Cats may also be recognized for their wonderful fighting skills. A few may even win a battle against snakes. Felines can survive in nearly all environments as well as geographical circumstances.

Historians cannot pinpoint nor identify the details of precisely how and when the first cat had been domesticated. What is known, however, is the fact that domesticated cats have been around for more than five thousand years now. In accordance with biologists, the modern domestic cat is either a direct descendant as well as a subspecies of the African Wildcat. This is the reason why the domestic cat is among the genus Felis. Some artifacts indicated that the first domestic cats made an appearance in ancient Egypt. Today, these cats have occupied almost all continents, Asia, Europe, and America, aside from Antarctica and they have evolved into over 50 different breeds.

Reasons For Neuturing Your KittyBeing one of the most favored pets on the planet, cats and kittens aren’t listed as endangered species. Female cats are known to provide an average of three kittens about twice yearly. Thus, the spaying and neutering of cats cannot hurt their world population.

A spayed and neutered cat will be a great benefit to your home. Cats that aren’t altered, specially the female ones, might spray their urine in areas that they consider their territory. Cat owners are all too familiar with the obnoxious smell of cat urine and regardless of how much washing one does, the scent can never be completely removed, especially from carpets, beddings, upholstery, and also furniture manufactured from wood. The urine of neutered cats is less smelly and more than likely an altered cats will not even consider marking territory in your home.

When not neutered, a female cat in heat will howl at strange hours of the night, most likely from midnight until dawn. The noises may end up being responded to by male cats that howl outside your door, undoubtedly causing you to lose sleep. Your neighbors might not be too happy either about all the racket. A cat in heat will end up being restless and could possible neglect whatever toilet training you may have taught them and this could last up to 3 weeks and happen three or more times per year.

Some cats that aren’t neutered might roam a long way from home; causing you endless worry and with good reason. Your cat will be dealing with cat fights and also fast-moving cars. When in danger, dogs will run away, but cats stay frozen in place. This is why many cats are run over by automobiles.

Neutered cats, however, will always remain in your home. They’ll be far more content, less restless and will additionally have longer life spans.
