What is Neutering?
Neutering is a surgical procedure which renders cats incapable of breeding. Female cats are spayed; male cats are castrated.
Why Should I Have My Cat Neutered?
Neutering helps to reduce the number of unwanted cats and kittens. In Addition, neutering makes pets healthier and happier. They become less likely to wander, protect their territory or get into fights with other cats. This means they are less likely to get bitten and get infected with life threatening diseases such as feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and feline leukaemia virus (FeLV).
Most cats killed on our roads are unneutered toms.
When should my Cat be Neutered?
Cats start having litters from approximately 6 months. Therefore, both male and female cats should be neutered from the age of approximately 5 months, or as advice by your vet.
Should female cats have a litter first before being spayed?
No, there is no reason for a cat to have a litter first.
Do Neutered Cats become fat?
