World Spay Day - 28 February 2017

World Spay Day - 28 February 2017

Nine of the UK’s animal welfare charities* have joined forces to promote World Spay Day 2017 to encourage cat owners to have their cats spayed. Spaying protects cats from getting pregnant - this is also known as neutering, fixing or being done.

Recent research has shown that 68% of litters in the UK are unplanned - and that some of these litters are born to cats who are just four months old. Our advice is simple - have your cat spayed at four months to protect her from getting pregnant. Male cats should be neutered too, to protect them catching diseases, such as FIV and getting nasty injuries from fighting - a male cat which hasn’t been neutered is much more likely to fight over a female mate. Neutering can also help to stop male cats from spraying indoors - which can be really smelly. He’s also more likely to stay close to home as a neutered male cat is less likely to stray.

Cats Protection Glasgow Branch offers neutering for cats for £5 in many vets across Glasgow, so there is no excuse!
