Further, the city cat does receive the odor of female travel with cats in season, and this often leads to a fine session of yowling plus an occasional case in which Tommy will leap from the window to get at the female. This often leads to serious injury and, at times, death. For this reason, your windows must always be closed or tightly screened.
A country tomcat is another matter. This tom goes roaming and enjoys the country air, grass, and trees. At the same time, he is constantly subject to injury, often severe. He is hit by cars, falls from trees, is hurt by children and adults and bitten by other travel with cats and wild animals. The bites often lead to deep abscesses which can become very serious if not treated promptly and properly. You should consider all these matters carefully before deciding whether or not to have your cat neutered.
