I hear what you are saying, and yes, all my animals have been "fixed," but it 
always breaks my heart to do it.  I am cutting off a strain of creatures - 
what about genetic diversity.  There will be no more smart, cute, sensitive 
creatures like my lovely tuxedo Lottie with the half-face mask, and no more sweet, 
dumb ones like her sister Jane who is such a pretty muted calico.  The 
breeders just turn out more of whatever type they think is commercial.  Same with 
dogs.  Many "breeds" have been bred for a certain look, and brains aren't part 
of it.  Now I'll get off my soapbox, too.  Auralie
