Neuter your cat

Early neuter


An easy way to help us, is to get your cat neutered. A lot of our time and resources are taken up with unwanted litters. If all owners got their cats neutered this would end a large problem, particularly in the Leeds area. It would mean that we could concentrate on finding homes for the many stray and unwanted cats in the area.

A growing problem we face in Leeds at present are multi-cat households, many people are not getting their cats neutered and not keeping them in, or worst still letting them breed amongst themselves.

We have seen a surge of kittens having their own litters, as cats can become pregnant from the age of 4 months. We are aware that some vets do not currently prescribed to "early neutering" (from 16 weeks), so we urge you in this case, please do not let your kitten out. At present we have several families with us where the mums have only been 4-5 months and their babies are nearly as big as them.
