Hey all y'all cat loving creatures out there! Thought I'd pass along a great deal being offered by Animal Wellness Center of Lewisville and The Colony--get your male cat neutered for just 5 CENTS this February 7, 2012 (Thursday)!

Our cat, Fartface, got his male parts snipped a few months ago by this same vet and we couldn't be happier. He no longer pees in our house and we don't have to worry about contributing to the cat overpopulation (though not guaranteed for you, our male cat now asks to go potty by meowing at the back door, weird yes, but hey no pee in the house). Neutering also has many benefits for your feline friend such as:

1. Besides preventing unwanted litters, neutering your male companion prevents testicular cancer, if done before six months of age.

2. Neutered cats and dogs focus their attention on their human families. On the other hand, unneutered dogs and cats may mark their territory by spraying strong-smelling urine all over the house. Many aggression problems can be avoided by early neutering.

3. Don’t use that old excuse! Lack of exercise and overfeeding will cause your pet to pack on the extra pounds—not neutering. Your pet will remain fit and trim as long as you continue to provide exercise and monitor food intake.

4. The cost of your pet's spay/neuter surgery is a lot less than the cost of having and caring for a litter (ESPECIALLY AT 5 CENTS!). It also beats the cost of treatment when your unneutered tom escapes and gets into fights with the neighborhood stray!
