Cats Protection champions neutering or spaying as the only effective way to reduce the number of unwanted cats in the UK

Help us prevent a kitten crisis during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

Due to the current pandemic, some vet practices will not be neutering cats or kittens – or they will be only be open with limited availability. Find out more about how to limit unwanted pregnancies as well as our FAQs on neutering during the coronavirus crisis.

We are working to clear up myths around spaying cats, spread the neutering message and make it easier for owners on low incomes to get their cats neutered. In some cases, we may be able to help with the cost of a neutering operation. If you need help financially, we might be able to help with neutering costs.

Our recommended neutering age for your pet cat is four months
 
We help neuter around 150,000 cats and kittens, including around 20,000 ferals, every year.

Find out more about neutering your cat, from the process itself to the various health benefits, in our vet-approved guide.
