As the behavior of cats after castration changes

Puberty of cats usually begins in 7-8 months. From this point owners can have first claims to the pet: the cat begins to mew, mark loudly the territory, becomes more aggressive. All these problems can be avoided if in time to castrate or sterilize an animal. However many owners of cats think of how the behavior and character of their favourites after operation will change.


1. Castration call surgery on removal testiclesof at cats. It allows to deprive completely an animal of sexual desire and reproductive function. Sterilization of a cat represents a perevyazyvaniye of semyavyvodyashchy channels. The cat remains sexually active, but cannot impregnate a female.

2. Sometimes concepts of sterilization and castration confuse. Each owner has to decide what of operations is more preferable to his pet. Sterilization is considered more sparing, but at the same time the cat remains full-fledged – "calls" the partner very loud miaow, marks the territory and so on. Some fans of cats claim that castration provokes development in cats of an urolithic disease. Actually it not so. If you decided to castrate a cat, then have to know that the behavior of an animal will change.

3. Right after operation the cat will be under anesthetic. His houses should be laid on a plain surface, it is better on the floor and to watch an animal carefully. In several hours the cat will regain consciousness and will want to move, will surely try to jump on the favourite place, for example, on a sofa or a chair. It cannot be allowed as your four-footed favourite did not depart from the effect of drugs yet and cannot coordinate the movements. During the next days the cat needs to find more time, than earlier: to iron an animal, to play with it. It will allow to endure a stress easier.

4. When the animal forgets about the undergone operation (usually it occurs in 10-14 days), his life returns to habitual normal again, however observant owners will notice changes. Operation saved a cat from need to look for a cat for pairing, so to have a stress. Now his life became measured and comfortable all year. The castrated cats do not show strong interest in the street. Probability of their escape from the house or accidental falling from a window or from a balcony decreases. And here to spoil claws furniture and wall-paper the animal can not cease. Such behavior is connected not with sexual instincts, and with need to sharpen claws therefore castration will not solve a problem of "cat wrecker".

5. During all life after operation of a cat it is impossible to overfeed at all. Owners have to control serving size even if the cat asks more. At the castrated cats the metabolism is slowed a little down, they spend less energy, and therefore excess tidbits can become the cause of obesity and the early death of the pet.

6. One more wrong statement is that after castration the cats become sluggish and passive. Actually the activity of a cat entirely depends on his temperament. In the first months after castration if it is made before to an animal year was executed, the kitten will remain same playful. The will be more senior to become your pet, the more time he will sleep, the he will become quieter in general. It is not connected with castration in any way – just the animal matured. But also the adult animal can regularly run behind a sunbeam and bite a toy mouse.
