Do Male Cats Still Spray After They Have Been Neutered
WILD ANIMAL NOISES All right, folks. Today we’re going to answer avery, very important question. A question that I getmore often than I probably should at this point,which is, Jackson, should I spay or neutermy animal companion? Should you? Man, we are about toget catified up in here.
