Getting cats “fixed” (spayed or neutered)

is it wrong for us to neuter the cats that we have as otherwise we would be having too many kittens, and would have to send them to the SPCA which would put them to sleep if nobody took them in.


Praise be to Allah.

If the operation will not harm the animal, then it is OK, because this is better than killing animals after they have been created.
