Our expert says:
MEN as a species are not specifically so scared. SOME men are, just as some women are. Where there are differences confirmed by research, is in how we respond to symptoms --- men are less likely to complain, to tell anyone, or to seek advice. It doesn't seem to arise from being scared, but more from not wanting to make a fuss, and perhaps with the idea that if you don't take it seriously, it'll go away.
But men are, indeed, notoriously queasy about the snip. Heck, even when it was adviseable, I couldn't face taking my previous (male) cat to the vet for a snip !
