Question by 恒健: Why do people feel so strongly about spaying cats?
Humans are just as overpopulated as cats are. You don’t see humans getting “spayed” or “nuetered”.
When I adopted my cat from the shelter she was already spayed. I’m only 13 and I dont know what its like to have a situation one deciding to have a kid.
But I’m just a little confused. Can anyone explain?

Because cats, unlike people, are being euthanized (as in killed) by the thousands in shelters across the country. There are just WAY too many of them.
While there is a human overpopulation problem this can only be overcome by education and people making choices to not have a zillion kids – I think we all know that cats lack this reasoning skill.
Also cats do not have human emotions (as in feeling a sense of loss at not being able to have kittens). Reproducing is an instinct for them and once they are spayed or neutered they no longer have this instinct and have normal happy, healthier lives.
