With birds, you can put the contraception in their food (ie New York City did this with pidgeons to reduce their population) or remove the eggs from the nest (ie chickens, zoo aviaries to manage their bird populations. This is much more simple than surgery.

How do you prevent your cat from getting pregenent besides getting them 'spayed' or 'neutered'?

Keep them away from other intact cats of the opposite sex. It is much easier and less worrisome to have them spayed or neutered, however. Female cats will go into heat every 8 days if they are not spayed, and it is not a pleasant experience. Also spayed female cats have a largely decreased risk of ovarian and mammary tumors, and neutered male cats have a largely decreased risk of prostate cancer. If cats are neutered/spayed before they reach sexual maturity it will also prevent bad behaviors such as spraying.
