It’s a good idea to spay your cat, if it’s a female. The appropriate term for a male cat is “neuter,” and that’s also a good idea. Males who haven’t been neutered have a tendency to spray, and the odor is a little more powerful than skunk spray. We found that out the hard way. It cuts down aggressive behavior in males and it’s been my expeience (and I have a lot of experience) that a spayed or neutered cat has fewer health issues and lives longer.
I think the same holds true for dogs, but I have no experience with them.
Now, what am I going to do with splay? Drop the s and you get play. Which reminds me, I’ve been playing this new game that I downloaded called Connect The Pops! It’s quite enjoyable, never mind that there doesn’t seem to be a way to “win.” Your score just keeps going up and up. Right now I’m at about 6 billion, with no end in sight. Maybe it’s so much fun because you’re not actually playing for a win, you’re just playing. Kind of a “cat’s game,” like you have in tic-tac-toe (or Aughts and Crosses), where you play to a draw. One piece of advice: spend the $2 and get rid of the ads…
