With so many homeless cats by the roadside, PLEASE, why breed more cats?? The drivers are not the only ones who add to the problem.

miss amanda, i've send my comments personally at your profile page. please have a look.
daphne1985   May 9th 2009 at 10:54AM
Hi Ms Hazwani, u dont misunderstand what Amanda mean. What she mean is u said that, u feel sad to see homeless cats being hit by car. Since you noe the street is full of stray cats why should u breed somemore? Why u feel pity about the stray from the street being hit by car why not you adopt them and safe them from the roadside rather breed for further. The population of stray cats are increasing incredible right now, they need more of your help, they need home, they need someone who willing forester them..Please safe them from the street rather increase the breeding...Please..

What Amanda mean is good for you no offense, dont need to feel hurt. She is just try to help u to solve your problem for looking of new kitten and help to save the homeless cats from the roadside. She has try her best to solve both your events.

First of all, do u noe breed an animal is like breeding life (a life = >20)can you take your responsible for their life, how many baby can u expect from your ginger? After all babies born, can u sure that they grow healthy and happy for their whole life? Are u still able to take care all of them or u are going to sell them? If u have sell them to others can u sure their life going to be good? Are u sure others going to take care well of them. Do you noe a female cat after breeding their life span going to reduce. They are not more as healthy as before. They are going to be more weak. Have u ever check that is Ginger suitable for breed? Not all Persian cats are suitable for breed. My cat (Tisa), she die after give birth baby..I'm so sad, my mistake I did not spay her, and accident happen to her. We did not expect that she pregnant..After send Tisa to vet, Dr said that Tisa is not suitable for breeding and she die finally..She is only live her life of 2 years..I'm so sad coz i love her..My mistake is i did not spay her earlier. If I were spay her before she is not going to have accident, she will not die..

Please..if you love Ginger, please consider about her before u make your decision.

There are lot of cute kitten all over the street, some even can easily find in Mamak Stall..I saw them many times..so cute and adorable..

Hazwani, I'm not scolding you or try to offense you. I just hope you dont go to the same ending as me..Please consider about life..

All the best to you and all your furkids, they are so cute and adorable..

Ditto (from daphne1985 and ManekiNeko).

One more advise. While you cannot control what others do, best you can do is change what only YOU can control.

What you cannot control- People driving recklessly.

What you can control- Neuter your cats (that comes with a whole bunch of other health benefits, and not to mention how you can save a few other lives rather than breeding, which comes with a bunch of benefits for your own soul.

Sometimes, it isn't all the driver's fault, A driver cannot stop awkwardly just about anywhere, there will be other cars behind the car and guess what will happen next too? Car accident.

No hard feelings, just sharing my thoughts and advise.
Just to answer your questions: Yes I do know how to read, so do ManekiNeko and everybody else on this forum.

I understand what you're saying. I used to think of that before as well. Here's the thing, the world is always changing, people are always changing, have you seen how messed up people are now compared with before?

You and I cannot understand their language, neither can anybody else. When someone is going to abuse them, or have abused them, can they ask for help? even if they do, would you be able to understand? From what you told me, no, we don't. We hear about them being abused, poisoned, killed, tell me what is it that you would do to help them?

How long will it take for you to shout out to the drivers for them to do what you shouted out for? And how long will it take for you to change your own mind that neutering your pets is a sensible thing to do? So far now, after your shout-out, have you seen a decrease in car accidents? Or not at all? or have increased?

Car accidents are only one of the reasons how animals are being killed innocently. Take the root of the problem, do you know why animals get involved in car accidents? Now if you can list them and solve the root of the problem, which is always faster and more efficient to start from yourself.

What I'm saying is, don't wait for the next person to do something. The more cats on the streets, the more of them will be abused. We don't want that to happen do we? We want to save as many as possible from the stray and from being put to sleep (they do deserve a life too just like you). Like I mentioned earlier, society changes all the time, and the way we handle a situation will and must change according to its needs.

Now will you put yourself in their shoes and see how it is like to be stray, put to sleep like they don't deserve a life, abused, poisoned, and etc? They cannot speak, but now that we know we MUST do something for them, because they cannot speak for themselves. Cruel or not, you can weight both sides. You are right, I do not have the rights to decide for them, you don't even have the rights to find a partner for your cat? How would you prefer me to consult them? And if we have such huge communication barrier, so when can we only start to make a better change for them?

While I'm advising you, I'm making a change myself.

Hi Hazwani, I dont noe why u are so angry..I'm just giving my opinion only. If u cant accept my opinion then continue what u think is right..In fact, I dont mean to hurt u.. And I apologize if what i said have offense u..

Give it or take it...Up to u...

Just my two cent
Hi White..Nice explanation u gave..I totally agree with u...I salute people like u and will support u all the times..

Benefits of Spaying or Neutering Your Pet

Sadly, each year more than 15 million dogs and cats are killed in the US because of pet overpopulation.

Altering pets through spay/neuter surgery helps prevent the unwanted birth of animals that would be difficult to place into good homes.

The spaying and neutering of pets can also reduce the incidence of sex-hormone related diseases.

1. Will my dog or cat be a better pet after altering?
Yes. In addition to the benefits of not having heat periods and unwanted offspring, the animal’s tendency to roam is decreased. Most pets become less aggressive toward people and other animals.

2. What are some of the other known advantages of having my pet altered?
The neutered male cat has a decreased urine odor, less of a tendency to fight and roam, and it is far less inclined to mark its territory by spraying urine.

The neutered male dog is also less likely to roam, mark territory, and display aggression toward other dogs. Neutered dogs have fewer tumors around the anus and decreased urine odor.

The spayed female cat and dog do not have reproductive tract disease problems, have less urinary tract infections, and significantly fewer cases of mammary cancer.

3. What is actually done in a spay or neuter procedure?
In both cases, the animal is put under general anesthesia so that it cannot feel anything.

A spay surgery (also called an ovariohysterectomy) is performed on females. While performed routinely, an ovariohysterectomy is a major surgery in which the reproductive tract – including the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus – is removed. Bloodwork may be performed to make sure the pet is healthy enough for anesthesia and surgery.

Neutering refers to the castration of a male animal. It is a surgical procedure in which both testicles are removed. Neutering requires considerably less time and equipment than a spay surgery.

4. How old should my pet be before surgery?
Consult with your veterinarian about the best age for your pet to have this surgery.

In most cases, it is considered safe to alter dogs and cats as early as eight weeks of age.

There may be health risks/concerns specific to certain breeds and sizes of dogs, specifically larger breeds; your veterinarian may advise waiting to perform this surgery until the dog is 6 months to one year or older.

As long as they are healthy enough for surgery, there is generally no upper age limit for pets to be spayed or neutered and, in fact, older pets can benefit from the surgery.

5. Should the female have a heat period or a litter before being spayed?
If your pet is going to be a companion animal rather than a breeding animal, then there are no benefits to allowing her to have a litter or to go through a heat period.

It is actually healthier for your dog or cat never to experience a heat as it lessen’s the animal’s chance of getting mammary cancer and decreases the animal’s stress and risks due to pregnancy and delivery.

Research indicates that dogs spayed prior to their first heat have less than a half of one percent chance of experiencing mammary cancer as compared to an eight percent chance after the second heat.

Cats spayed after their first heat have a seven times greater chance of suffering from mammary cancer than cats spayed prior to their first heat.

6. Is it safe for a dog or cat to be spayed when she is in heat or pregnant?
Females in good health can have the surgery done when they are in heat or pregnant. Talk with your veterinarians as to what is best for your pet.

7. Isn’t it unnatural to deprive my pet of a sex life?
No. Dogs and cats have sex strictly to satisfy hormone-induced instincts, not for pleasure.

8. Why shouldn’t I just keep my female dog or cat confined while she is in heat?
You can do this, of course. But, remember, your unspayed dog will come into heat twice a year for its entire life. A cat comes into heat once a month for its entire life. Also, do not forget all of the other health benefits of spay surgery.

9. Will spaying or neutering my pet cause it to become fat and lazy?
No. Weight gain is due to being fed more calories than the animal uses. Watch the quantity of food you give your pet. Also, older pets need fewer calories than younger ones because they tend to be less active and are no longer growing. Regular play and exercise, along with diet, are the keys to keeping your pet in shape.

From: http://www.spayusa.org/main_director...enefits_sn.asp

Benefits of Spaying (females):
No heat cycles, therefore males will not be attracted
Less desire to roam
Risk of mammary gland tumors, ovarian and/or uterine cancer is reduced or eliminated, especially if done before the first heat cycle
Reduces number of unwanted cats/kittens/dogs/puppies
Helps dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives

Benefits of Neutering (males):
Reduces or eliminates risk of spraying and marking
Less desire to roam, therefore less likely to be injured in fights or auto accidents
Risk of testicular cancer is eliminated, and decreases incidence of prostate disease
Reduces number of unwanted cats/kittens/dogs/puppies
Decreases aggressive behavior, including dog bites
Helps dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives

Top 3 Reasons to Spay and Neuter
It helps to reduce companion animal overpopulation. Most countries have a surplus of companion animals and are forced to euthanize or disregard their great suffering. The surplus is in the millions in the United States. Cats are 45 times as prolific, and dogs 15 times as prolific, as humans.They do not need our help to expand their numbers; they need our help to reduce their numbers until there are good homes for them all.

Sterilization of your cat or dog will increase his/her chance of a longer and healthier life. Altering your canine friend will increase his life an average of 1 to 3 years, felines, 3 to 5 years. Altered animals have a very low to no risk of mammary gland tumors/cancer, prostate cancer, perianal tumors, pyometria, and uterine, ovarian and testicular cancers.
Sterilizing your cat/dog makes him/her a better pet, reducing his/her urge to roam and decreasing the risk of contracting diseases or getting hurt as they roam. Surveys indicate that as many as 85% of dogs hit by cars are unaltered. Intact male cats living outside have been shown to live on average less than two years. Feline Immunodeficiency Syndrome is spread by bites and intact cats fight a great deal more than altered cats.

Additional Benefits:

Your community will also benefit. Unwanted animals are becoming a very real concern in many places. Stray animals can easily become a public nuisance, soiling parks and streets, ruining shrubbery, frightening children and elderly people, creating noise and other disturbances, causing automobile accidents, and sometimes even killing livestock or other pets.
- The American Veterinary Medical Association

The capture, impoundment and eventual destruction of unwanted animals costs taxpayers and private humanitarian agencies over a billion dollars each year. As a potential source of rabies and other less serious diseases, they can be a public health hazard.

thanks daphne. :) you've done such a great thing, and will also give you the same support in whatever that you do!
Nop. I put up that link to show people that animals aren't for us to buy/sell, and to hear what animal lovers say about rate of reproduction, and how it kills many others.

Agreed wif chino.
ManekiNeko   May 31st 2009 at 10:17AM
Hi, Hazwani,

Yes, perhaps we must agree to disagree on the spay/neuter issue. Ultimately, I believe, neither of us wants to see stray, homeless cats suffer and die ghastly deaths. We just have different opinions on how to address the problem.

And yes, Maneki Neko is Japanese for "Beckoning Cat". You know the one -- it's the cat waving at you from shop windows and near cash registers. That cat is asking you to part with some of your money; my cat was in a big pen at SPCA, waving at me and yowling, "Get me out of here!" :-)

You're welcome. I hope you read it and found it educational and enlightening.
daphne1985   May 31st 2009 at 4:01PM
hehehe..no need to apologize to me.. Agree with u different ppl have different thought..anyway i did not force u to follow me too..Just giving my opinion..coz i'm too regret to lost My Tisa, I love her so much..and much..and till now i still miss her..Tisa die due to hard in giving birth kitty..I was so surprise tat time she pregnant..I did not spay her at 1st time but every three months will bring her to vet for injection to prevent pregnant, also wonder why she can pregnant..but this is my big fault tat i didnt spay her at 1st place..

Hi, Hazwani,

The requirements for migrating with your furkids depend upon the country you're going to. I know Australia, for example, is quite restrictive, the EU less so. There's a very knowledgeable lady who runs a boarding facility for cats in PJ, and she also offers advice on re-locating with cats. Her name is Liz Tay, web-site is www.scallywags-malaysia.com. I'm sure Liz can help you work out all the details. Best of luck!

And Maneki is female, BTW. :-)
daphne1985   Jun 16th 2009 at 12:33AM
Hi, Hazwani..Sorry for late reply, iwas quite bz tis days. Ya, I heard bout migrating furkids to oversea, may i suggest u to check tis with ur nearest vet in ur place coz i guess u need some vaccination done for them b4 u migrating them and the Dr can consult you more on that, why not try to ask the vet, they would great to asist u more on that..Hope everyting were fine for u..Good Luck ^-^

ManekiNeko, Daphne, Lynielime, White: Thank you for being able to think rationally and act selflessly. I commend you for your posts. Tens of millions of animals are killed each year. To those who take "pity" on an altered animal because it cannot have sex: Spaying and neutering is the only answer - to act otherwise is selfish and irresponsible. Animals do NOT have sex out of pleasure, but out of instinct. No animal has sex because it enjoys it and no altered animal walks around sad, wishing it could have sex. Wake up, people! If you care one bit about the sick, starving, injured cats running around outside, grow up, be responsible and do something about it! You guys are nicer than I am, I have NO tolerance for people who are contributing to the problem and causing animals to suffer. I, and many others, spend HUGE amounts of money and time fixing stray cats. In July alone I spent 2,000 ringit having strays spayed and neutered, only to have foolish, selfish, irresponsible people feel sorry for a cat that cannot have sex! To those who are causing the problem - grow up and get a brain!
