Hello everyone, well another week has passed and it has been quite an eventful weekend for me. Friday was a big day for Suneo. He is 10 months old this month, and I thought it was time to get him neutered, so off we went to see the Vet. I was told that having my cat neutered would calm him down and remove the aggression. Suneo is not a bad boy but each time he saw a male gray /red cat walking across our front yard , he gets really angry and started meowing, yowling and howling incessantly. He does not want another cat enters and marks his territory. If other males trespasses on his territory, he will fight to defend it. In the evening, he can really drive you crazy with his yowling and howling asking me to let him out to chase the trespasser. The screaming could be heard from down the street! Not good for my sleep, of course.
Unlike dogs, cats are not pack animals. They are highly territorial creatures. Male cats especially are more prone to fight other cats to defend their turf. Cats also will howl non-stop when they are in heat. So I have good reason to get Suneo neutered as his meowing can be very aggravating to anyone forced to listen to it. It was a quick and simple no-stitches required kind of surgery. And Suneo bounces back very quickly as by the next morning he behaves as if nothing had happened.
Saturday afternoon, the day after his surgery, I heard Suneo yowling like he does when there’s a cat outside the house. He’s an indoor cat, but he still believes he has to defend “his” turf outside. He does this by yowling, screaming and pounding on the front door in an attempt to scare the other cat away. I didn't see any cat outside except some cars parked in front of my place. So I let him out to satisfy his curiosity. Only then I realized something went wrong. Suneo saw the red male cat (one from the neighborhood) and chased it out from under the car he normally occupied. I heard loud yelping and knew Suneo was in trouble. I was so worry the other cat will attack his newly operated spot. I was screaming and called him but the fighting continued. A neighbor then quickly helped me to chase the other cat away and Suneo tried to chase him but I managed to get him. He got a bit cut on his rear end but thank goodness he looked okay and he was not infected. He didn’t know what his opponent was capable of and what good fighters they are–especially when cornered. Despite being neutered, I think Suneo is still agressive … *sigh*.
Lessons learned here ladies, if you try to neuter the man in your life, don’t expect him to behave any better!...LOL!
