Sterilizing a cat

Home / Fiqh / Sterilizing a cat

Question:

We decided to own a kitten because rats have occasionally entered into our house. The kitten is now a female cat that is in the reproductive stage. She escapes at night to be with other cats and we fear she may get pregnant. We cannot have anymore cats in the house. Can she be sterilized? We don’t live in the country where cats would find their own food.

Zaynab El-Kateb:

The Scholars say that you should not do this operation to a cat because this is causing harm to it. You either tolerate the situation or you can just leave it on the street. You can fight rats using other methods.
