Spaying a cat

Q: I have a female cat. Many people told me, including my cat doctor to get her spayed (spayed is a surgery to remove female cat uterus and ovaries to prevent her giving birth). My cat doctor told me spayed has many benefits (including health benefits because many female cat got cancerous cells after giving birth to lots of kitten and also less population so kittens cant roam homeless and starve on street also female cat will have less risk to get lost or injured in a traffic accident in searching of a mate which is because female cat dont go on a heat after spayed). My question is! Does Islam allow us to do female cat spayed? Is that haram?

A: It is permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
