Tomcats cannot tell the difference between spayed and intact females — 2 Comments

  1. Past personal experience and education tends to disagree with the good doctor. Toms have been known to target spayed females with extreme aggression because they smell differently than intact females. Why? Intact females emit hormonal scents created by the same organs that the spayed female lacks. Yes, the tom is looking for mates, but he is able to smell that spayed females are different. It strikes me oddly that a veterinarian does not include this fact into his observations.
