Animals in heat are such a pain in the ass. My dog went into heat the first time before we could afford to get her spayed, and it was a nightmare. I don't know if cats are the same as dogs during heat cycles, but if they are, stock up on animal diapers.
Cats in heat are annoying as heck. They wail like they're being killed in the middle of the night; and male cats would surround my house every time she did that. Fun fact: cat penises have spikes on them that scratches the female's vaginal walls during intercourse and promotes ovulation. That's why the cats always sound like they're dying when they're having sex. :)
This set of comments made me laugh my ass off! Going to put the fml in my favorites so I can get a good laugh when I need it. Op fyl if this is her first time in heat. Ydi if you have been procrastinating doing so. I know money may be an issue but there are some vets that will do it for cheap. Unless you can't
Worthless? I have a newborn kitten sleeping on my arm as I write this and he wakes up giving me adoring eyes of love. The brother gives baby meows to greet us when he wakes up and constantly washes us to show trust. In my 25 years with felines I've never found them worthless, even despite my high allergy to them.
Incorrect. Cats are not worthless pets. Mine is a hunter. So every time some foul demonic critter (spider, lizard, cockroach, mouse, etc) gets into the house, she catches and kills it. They are very loving and loyal to their owners. Not to mention not all cats get on tables. Just because you have to earn a cats love doesn't mean they aren't good pets. You come off as very ignorant AZ.
The idea that cats are not loving & loyal pets is complete bull... I have 2 cats & they are incredibly loving. They come when I call & snuggle into my lap for naps & petting. Both of mine were rescues & they seem to understand the difference between their lives now & before they were taken in. They even try to care for me when I'm injured. After I had surgery, they could smell the blood & pain & didn't leave my side for almost a week. I just wish people would understand that it's a simple question of preference & not be so rude or cruel about it.
AZ, you don't know your Shit. Cats vary more in personality true and some can be very cold to their owners true but often times that is because they haven't been socialized as they should be. My cat will sit at the screen door and meow for help from the rest of my family, if they are outside, when I get a bloody nose. He meows for me when I walk outside and he always comes to greet me when I get home. He also will come when called. And it's easy to train your cats not to go up on the table and counter, my cats don't.
Let me explain something to you, AZ... Cats are just a different flavor of pet. Dogs have some seriously nasty habits as well, you know... They go & eat poop & then lick your face. However, unlike you, I will admit that not every dog has that nasty habit. Just like not every cat jumps on the table. Mine never do. As for getting waste on their paws? That only happens if the owner isn't responsible & cleans the box as often as they should. Stop sounding so ignorant by generalizing every cat. They have as many varied personalities & habits as dogs do. They can be trained & can be very loyal & loving pets. As I'm writing this, my little female LuLu is curled up in my lap purring like a madman with the most loving expression & every time I pause in typing, she starts grooming my arms & hands to show affection... Stop being so cruel & generalizing like that. It makes you sound ignorant & incredibly rude.
Actually 102 it isn't for cats. For dogs you could make that argument because dogs release one egg every month just like humans. Cats however release an egg only after sex, which is prompted by tiny spikes in the males penis where when the male pulls out it causes immense pain and the secretion of an egg from the ovaries.
131- I know this stuff because I am a vet in training. Sorry to all those who got grossed out. But it's also very impressive that because of that aspect they are exceptionally good at making kittens. You always hear the quote that everything about a cat is either geared towards killing or sex and it is so true
Nazgûls are the dark creatures that go after the One Ring in Lord of the Rings. Get your LOTR shit together, guys. ;)
Get a spray-bottle of water, and keep that damn horny cat away from your face! Oh, and hide ALL the jewelry....for obvious reasons.
That's why I always prefer males as pets. They just like humping stuff which honestly, what guy doesn't?
I remember having to spay my Springer Spaniel later in life. After the week with the cone it came off we were sitting in our living room and the dog went to investigate what happened, when he looked up at both of us his eyes told us everything! I felt so guilty, my wife however had a differing opinion! ? take em off with out missing a beat! It had to be done for medical reasons, but still felt really bad!
115- I was mentioning some of the things people don't think of when they get their pet fixed. Let me word it this way, you know how many animals are put down at animal adoption services like SPCA's? Tonnes. You don't want to know the figures cuz it will make many people depressed. And that's because there aren't enough people to buy them. Many of these animals are puppies and kittens who would make a great pet. So would you rather not spay or neuter your pet and contribute to those numbers of needlessly killed kittens and puppies?
Here's some advice: do NOT let her outside. Unless you want kittens. I can assure you, she will most likely come home pregnant.
Actually it does say she an irresponsible pet owner because animals live longer when they have been fixed. They are less likely to run away, get into a fight, are protected from types of diseases even. Also with over 4 million animals a year being put down (killed) its very irresponsible to leave a cat unfixed.
53- This is true, but it's still unfair to assume that OP is irresponsible based on this FML. For all we know, OP took the cat for a friend and it went into heat within a few days of OP taking it in. But overall, spaying/neutering is the best option. It's sad how many animals are left to die in pet shelters.
this is probably gonna get thumbed down but I live on a farm and we got our cat neutered for less than 20$ by one of our truck drivers. a pair of overalls and some duct tape and you're good to go! (and some anesthetic. NO the cat was not awake when he got the operation)
Breeding is actually an inrresponsible practice for the average pet owner, and it's plain stupid considering how many homeless animals there are. Being unable to afford a spay or neuter is also not an excuse. Try not owning an animal if you don't have the money. Opting out of a spay/neuter is not a "right" of the owner, it's asinine.
Agree. Mine used to go over to the neighbors place, rape her cat, beat up the other male cat, break into the house and piss in her bedroom, on her bed. I had to get him fixed before she was completely traumatized by my little monster. He was as sweet as pie afterwards!
