Default I have two 10 year old female cats. I would like to get them spayed but I am afraid o

It is very unusual for animals’ temperaments to change drastically after spaying and I suspect your cats will be exactly the same behavior-wise after surgery as they were before. I would encourage you to go forward with their spaying, even this late in life, as being unspayed can make them more prone to an infected uterus (pyometra).

We have one female of indeterminate age. We rescued her several years ago from a pet store where she was being used as a breeding machine. Even then we didn't know how old she was. She had a pretty saggy belly area and walked like she had crooked hips. We decided to have her spayed because when she went into heat she would literally go berserk if we kept her in the house, and outside she would be immediately surrounded by a bunch of crazed males. Obviously her overt fertility is the reason she was used at the pet store. By the time we decided to fix her she had been with us a few years and of course had a few litters. I know, irresponsible on our part. That has to be tiring for a poor cat...I can't even imagine bearing as many pregnancies as she did...yipes, we don't even know for sure how many litters that is!! Anyway, she came home from the vet all fixed and never stopped being her sweet adorable self. The only difference is she doesn't go crazy with heat anymore, which is a relief for all of us.
