Cambridge Cats Protection strongly encourages neutering of cats. Benefits are:
- It stops unwanted kittens. Unneutered females can be responsible for up to 18 kittens a year.
- Your cat is less likely to fight, thus reducing the risk of injury and disease transmitted by bites and saliva.
- Neutered cats are less likely to wander and get run over.
- Neutered male cats are less likely to display territorial behaviour such as spraying.
Cats can breed from 4 months, and they will mate with family members. To avoid the expense and work of rearing kittens, get your cat neutered as soon as it's old enough.
