A Poem about the Snip Snip

Please note: This is a creative piece about the neutering/spaying of cats (Felis catus) and is not intended to offer any medical advice. It is purely for educational and entertainment purposes. If you have any questions about the process please speak to a qualified vet.

If you have an indoor kitty

Please neuter! Don't contemplate


Or else he may want to leave and roam

If you don't allow that, it will irritate


This annoyance is called re-directed aggression

which can definitely escalate


To scratches, bites, bruises and swipes

Quite a havoc it would create


Here are some things you should know

After the snip snip, he may put on weight


The diet needs to change

You have to put fewer calories on his plate


Before surgery, he will spray urine as a message

*sigh* If only we could translate


But now he won't need to tell the ladies anything

Since he's not ready to mate


The roaming & escapes will reduce

because now he won't need to find a date.


The surgery is quite simple & very common

Ask many questions! Your vet is up to date


It reduces the risk of testicular cancer & disease

The health benefits are great


After the neutering, your kitty should rest

For recovery, you can use your crate


Don't allow them to chew, scratch or itch it

Use a cone/e-collar but there may be some hate


If you have more than 1 cat

post-surgery, make sure you separate


After surgery, the cat smells different

So for 48-72 hours, you must wait!


If your kitty is an indoor & outdoor lad

The need for neutering will inflate


Or else you will have a 10,000 kittens

So, you better do it before it gets too late


P.s. This applies to females too but the poem used a male as a reference for creative reasons.

Females can get pregnant as young as 4 months of age
