***STOP PRESS*** Did you know that you can get free cat neutering from the C4 scheme if you live within the M25 area? Check out the C4 website for more information please and spread the word.
Neutering of our animals is the only way to put a stop to the many abandoned and stray cats we see on our streets. It is the only way forward with helping to eliminate this problem. There are so many unwanted cats and kittens in rescue organisations up and down the country, why bring more into the world?? There's no reason for it and the responsibility of neutering a cat rests with the owner - it's what responsible pet ownership is about and we are here to help!
Every cat that we home (apart from young kittens) is neutered by us.
We also run Neutering Campaigns to help members of the public with financial assistance to neuter their cats - PLEASE CALL US IF YOU THINK WE CAN HELP YOU AND YOUR CAT!
Other reasons to neuter your cat:
- He or she will be less territorial and so less likely to get into fights. Life threatening diseases such as Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV) can be transmitted through bites and scratches - neutering can thus help reduce the risks.
- From six months, a kitten can have three litters of six a year – that’s 18 kittens.
- There is no benefit at all from having a litter firs.
- Neutered cats will stay close to home and be a more friendly and attentive pet.
- Owing to all of the above, your cat will probably live longer too.
Please do neuter your cat, male or female. You have a responsibility and owe it to your pet - please do contact us if you need help and hopefully together, we can make a difference.
We are very proud that that on average our small branch neuters nearly 100 cats in the local area. Not bad for a small branch.
