Neutering

Did you know?
  • A female cat can start to reproduce from five months old and have up to three litters a year with five or six kittens per litter.
  • Male cats are fertile as early as four months old and each can impregnate hundreds of female cats every year.
  • An unneutered male cat is more likely to be at risk from fight injuries and road accidents.
  • A neutered cat is healthier, happier and more affectionate and undoubtedly will have a longer life.
There are approximately 8 million domesticated cats in the UK and at least a million undomesticated (feral) cats. We do not know how many stray cats there are in the Basildon area, but every year we are asked to take in a never-ending number of unwanted cats and kittens.

Our charity has a new scheme including microchipping for £10 at participating vets. You can find out if you qualify and how to apply:
