Neutering

 

Gosport Cats Protection is pleased to announce that 'Snip and Chip for £10' is back for July and August 2019.

 

If you're a pensioner or student, in receipt of benefits, on a low income or struggling to afford to spay or neuter your cat(s), you can now get this done for the incredibly low price of £10 - and they'll be microchipped too!

 

To be eligible you must live in the PO12 or PO13 areas and register by 31st August 2019. This isn't just for kittens - older cats welcome too!

 

For more information and/or to register, phone Chris on 02392 582601 or come and talk to us at one of our events. Neutering doesn't just prevent kittens - there are proven health benefits for your cat too!



Kittens are cute but they grow up fast and there are thousands of unwanted cats and kittens in the UK, show you care and get your cat or kitten spayed or snipped from 4 months of age. 

Neutering for male and female cats is a routine operation which has numerous benefits for your cat. Cats recover very quickly from neutering operations but we’d recommend following your vet’s advice on how to look after your cat after its operation. 

Neutering our kittens and cats is one of the most important things owners can do for their pet. Invest in your pet’s health and wellbeing by getting him/her neutered.  

       
Neutered male cats
will become less likely to roam (reducing the risk of being run over), will become less likely to fight, thus improving their chances of avoiding serious diseases, like feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and feline leukaemia virus (FeLV) which are transmitted by cat bites and reproductive activity and will also be less likely to mark their territory with urine (spraying). 

Spayed female cats can avoid unwanted pregnancies (it is not beneficial for a female cat to have a litter before spaying, this is a myth), won’t call and wail during their sexual cycle and will be less likely to contract diseases spread by bites and reproductive activity.
