Angelababy recently announced her cat giving birth to three kittens last month.
According to Asianpopnews.com, she spoke up about neutering and said:
"Many vets advise owners to neuter their pets, but I feel that they have a whole life, and they don't have to work or do anything.
"We are depriving their rights.
"Of course, vets advise neutering due to health issues and to prolong their lives, but if you think about it, if a man wishes to live till 100 but he loses his right and can only eat untasty food, there is no meaning in his life."
Her stand has drawn criticism from cat lovers who pointed out that her Scottish Fold cat has a genetic abnormality that affects cartilage and bone development throughout the body.
Cats of this breed will develop severe joint disease as it ages and suffer from respiratory disease.
Hence, many cat lovers have advised Scottish Fold owners to neuter their cats.
Netizens have responded harshly to Angelababy and commented "brainless" and "ignorance" on her social media.
Some believe that as a public figure, she should not convey wrong information to her followers.
