Why do people spend money on people for surgery when the pet is better off being put down and they won't spend the money to get an animal spayed? I know some people who had their elderly cat operated on. No telling how much they paid for the surgery. They knew ahead of time that the cat would probably die anyway. They have some other cats and one of the cats is pregnant. They've had the cat a while. I am thinking they should have had the animal spayed so it wouldn't produce any more unwanted kittens.
