Cats Protection champions neutering as the only effective way to reduce the number of unwanted cats in the UK.
We seek to dispel myths, spread the neutering message and make it easier for owners on low incomes to get their cats neutered.
- In female cats the risk of mammary (breast) cancer is greatly reduced if a cat is spayed, as is the risk of pyometra, a potentially life threatening infection of the womb.
- Male neutered cats are less likely to wander, thus reducing the risk of road traffic accidents. In addition they are at a lesser risk of getting into fights with other cats during which fatal diseases may be transmitted such as FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) and FELV (Feline Leukaemia Virus)
- Neutering also greatly reduces the chance of the cat spraying in the home, thus reducing stress for the owners..
Glasgow Neutering Campaign
Cats Protection is currently running a £5 Neutering throughout Glasgow. Owners residing in all G postcodes and PA1-17 can have their cat neutered for £5 (routine neutering only) Long term stray cats, where exhaustive efforts have been made to find an owner and the cat has been in the area for more than 2 months, can also be neutered under the scheme.
