This past week I learned a very valuable lesson. I know that we are always told that we should always spay and neuter our pets. I thought it was just for population control. Yet I recently found out that this is not the case.
I didn’t get my Saya spayed because I didn’t want to mess with nature. Darwinism at its best, I guess. Well recently I broke down and got my little Saya spayed. I really couldn’t deal with the constant screaming that took place that took place every time she went into heat. Also since I ended up with a roommate I really didn’t have a choice.
What a nerve racking experience. Imagine my horror when I discovered that my Saya has developed Pyometra. Had I waited any longer I would have lost my loyal owner. Needless to say I was mortified when I was informed of this. I honestly thought I was being kind to my baby by keeping things “natural”. What a horrible owner I have been. By not getting her spayed I almost killed my baby. On that more I have been turned on to team “Spay and Neuter our pet”. I would be a mess if I lost my precious Saya.
So on that note, I cannot stress enough on a personal level to spay and neuter you pets. The cost for not doing so is not worth it.
