Even if you never plan to show your cat in cat shows in the "alter" classes for neutered and spayed cats, you never know what will happen in the future. Sometimes the cat needs to be sold or re-homed at some point, and this is your proof that your cat is a registered pedigreed cat. That makes the cat more valuable in $, because it has a proven lineage of purebred cats behind it. Some people will say their cat is purebred but often it isn't at all and may be a mix of some sort but they want to charge or sell the cat at same price as a registered purebred. Sometimes a cat ends up in the humane society for some reason....such as the owner got ill. This is important information for the humane society to know the cat is registered and to have its papers to prove it. Most purebred, registered cats are going to be chosen over domestic shorthairs in a humane society, so have an advantage of finding a new owner and home . Gotta have the papers to prove it.
