Neuter your cat for £5

Neuter your cat for £5

As well as rehoming cats, Cats Protection also encourages the neutering of cats. We can help with the cost of neutering and are currently running a £5 campaign. You will pay £5, we will cover the rest through money that we raise. To qualify, you need to be on a means-tested benefit, a state pensioner or a full-time student. For more information call us on 07837 342 64607837 342 646 (please leave a message), pm us on Facebook leaving your phone number, or e-mail us on moraycp@hotmail.com.

Neutering a cat has many benefits:

  • Male cats are less likely to roam and less likely to fight which can cause painful wounds and abscesses or transmit diseases such as FIV or FeLV both of which can be fatal and will lead to the need for veterinary care.

  • They are less likely to display territorial behaviour such as spraying.

  • Female cats are not going to come into season and call and wail to attract males.

  • They cannot get pregnant and have unwanted litters of kittens.

Can we also dispel a couple of ‘urban myths’ that seem to be prevalent.

1. It is NOT beneficial for a female cat to have ‘just one litter’ before being spayed.

2. Cats WILL breed with their brothers and sisters

So please, please, please get your cat neutered.

If you are a pensioner, student, on benefits or a low wage, we may be able to help with the cost of neutering your cat.

We will get back to you as soon as we can but please bear in mind, we are all volunteers busy with jobs and families so can’t always respond immediately.
