Should I get my female cat spayed?

This animation focuses on a female cat with a large litter of kittens looking stressed and unhappy. The video then shows an alternate situation, in which the cat has been neutered and appears stress-free and content.

Watch the video below.


Cats Protection recommends getting your cat neutered when they are four months old to prevent unwanted litters of kittens. There are also several health and welfare benefits. You can find out more in our downloadable neutering guide here.
