tom-catsInfertility in male tom cats is not usually a problem. Unless your a cat breeder with a valuable, champion tom cat, it can’t fulfill it’s reproductive obligation. Veterinarians who specialize in reproductive disorders, will conduct a microscopic examination of the tom cats sperm. Is it mobile and able to move about spontaneously? Does the sperm have the proper morphology? ¬†Other conditions that could affect the fertility of male cats include malnutrition, obesity, too much liver in the cats diet and hypothyroidism. There are pet medications that could control a thyroid problem. Sometimes it just comes down to a weak libido. Luckily there are treatments for most of these problems.
