Hello /an I have got a fiesty little maine coon that is 1 year old and weighs 22 pounds. As it will soon get into the breeding age I have a problem- it was born with a congenital eye disease, which means that other coon breeders will not want to breed with my cat for the fear of the disease carrying on to offspring. I don't want to get it neutered either because it seems unfair to the animal. I was wondering if it is possible for a maine coon to have sex with a regular cat (I let it outside every once in a while).
tl.dr: can maine coon and regular cats have sex/ will it kill the smaller cat?

Which is more unfair: to remove your cat's desire to make fuck or for potentially dozens of kittens to be born with the same shitty condition he has, and possibly die on the streets anyway because of rampant pet overpopulation?
I want to believe this is bait but I don't have enough faith in people to believe it anymore.
Yes. Domestic cats are the same species regardless of breed.
There are a limited number of human homes felines can occupy. Literal millions of stray/feral cats are born into lives full of suffering and die, suffering, starving full of disease and parasites. It happens at shelters every single day. If you have the power to prevent that from happening even on so small a scale as the offspring your own animal would produce, why wouldn't you? Why knowingly create diseased kittens when so many otherwise healthy ones are already without homes? So your cat can get his rocks off?
