There are many reasons to get your cat neutered - for example did you know that one un-neutered female can be responsible for 20,000 descendents in just five years?!
Neutering has many health benefits, as well as helping to reduce the number of unwanted cats in the UK. (There are currently around 2.5 million stray cats living in the UK).
Neutered male cats are:
- Less likely to roam, reducing the risk of them being run over
- Less likely to fight, reducing the risk of them getting injured
- Less likely to contract serious diseases such as feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) or Feline leukaemia virus (FeLV)
- Less likely to display territorial behaviour such as spraying
- Unable to develop tumours of the testicles
Neutered female cats are:
- Unable to get pregnant and have unwanted litters of kittens
- Not going to call or wail, as unneutered queens do when in season
- Less likely to contract diseases such as FIV and FeLV spread by bites
- Unable to develop cancer of the ovaries or uterus
- Less likely to develop mammary cancer - especially if neutered under the age of six months
