Do you think that it would be a bad idea to get my Uncle's female farm cat spayed or not and Why?

    YES! Each cat needs to be spayed/neutered ESPECIALLY if they are outside. If not she will get pregnant, then she will have babies that no one will want and will because feral if they even live. Babies born outside and not given the right vet care usually don't make it because for kittens, a simple cold is a life-or-death situation. I rescued a kitten and it was 14 weeks old. That's what would be a teenager for people. She got just a regular cold, and even with antibiotic shots, liquids, and fluids she didn't make it.

    An adult unaltered pair of cats can and will produce upwards of 70,000 off springs in less the 10 years.

    There is no reason not to spay a cat. She should be spayed immediately.

    Yes it would be best to have her spayed.

    One female cat can quickly turn into hundreds of cats.
