Cats Protection list a number of reasons why it’s important to get your cat neutered;

Neutered male cats

  • will become less likely to roam (reducing the risk of being run over),
  • less likely to fight, thus improving their chances of avoiding serious diseases, like feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and feline leukaemia virus (FeLV) which are transmitted by cat bites and reproductive activity.
  • Tend to not mark their territory with urine (spraying).

Spayed female cats

  • can avoid unwanted pregnancies (It is NOT beneficial for a female cat to have a litter before spaying, this is a myth),
  • won’t call and wail during their sexual cycle
  • will be less likely to contract diseases spread by bites and reproductive activity.

Did you know…

  • A female can produce a litter of up to 6 kittens.
  • Kittens can reach sexual maturity as early as 4-5 months old.
  • A female cat can fall pregnant again even if she is still feeding her first litter.
  • The gestation period for female cats is just 9 weeks.
  • Kittens born as a result of inter-breeding can be born with serious birth defects.

Cats recover very quickly from neutering operations but we’d recommend following your vet’s advice on how to look after your cat after its operation.
