    Are you saying that one is undescended?

    Ben, you silly goof!:n: Ben had one testicle that hadn't descended when he was neutered. That fact was apparent when the vet examined him pre-surgery, though. If a cat is monorchid or cryptorchid, they generally remove the undescended testicles through an incision in the abdomen.

    When Behr was neutered I noticed that his lower abdomen had an incision in it. The vet said it was because he one of his testicles had not descended. Does your cat have a little incision on his tummy? I'd be going back if they only cut one. My thinking is he could still get someone pregnant.

    He had two when I took him in..and he had two when the vet examened him prior to removel surgery...they only found one when the surgery was in progress..yes they did a search via a incision in his lower abdomen..was not found. and we did not even get a half price deal...
