Neutering

There are thousands of unwanted cats in the UK.  One of our aims as a charity is to promote champion and encourage neutering.
  •  Neutering is the best way to deal with the issue of unwanted pregnancies - by preventing the problem in the first place. In addition, it also has health benefits for your cat.
  • The chance of contracting some infectious cat diseases will be reduced, as will the likelihood of developing mammary tumours (breast cancers), pyometra (life threatening womb infections), testicular cancer, and many other illnesses.
  • Unneutered male cats are more likely to end up injured from fighting, or stray from home. They can often spray smelly urine to attract potential mates, and experience stress from frustration if they don't find one. Neutered males are less likely to roam or fight and their urine will smell less pungent!
  • Female cats that haven't been neutered can become pregnant from four months of age, are more likely to contract diseases and are even at risk of developing infections. Neutering your female cat means there won't be any unwanted kittens, so there will be no expense associated with litters.
  • A female cat can give birth to three litters of kittens per year, with an average of four kittens per litter, in an average lifetime of 15 years for cat. This could result in up to 180 kittens in her lifetime.
Our recommended aged for neutering your pet cat is four months old.
