The benefits of neutering are huge -

Neutered cats are less likely to get injured or sick, saving you money in the long term.
There are too many unwanted cats in the UK, we don’t need more.
Please be a responsible pet owner. Neutering reduces a cats likelihood to roam, fight, spray and otherwise be a nuisance.
Improved Health - neutered cats are generally healthier overall than those who are un-neutered and live longer.

Did you know

1 un-neutered female cat in 5 years can have 20,000 desendents?This leads to unwanted kittens, which leads to unwanted strays with a life that offers only misery, hunger and disease.

Neutering promotes a more satisfactory and enjoyable pet. A neutered male will be much less inclined to spray about the house and leave an unpleasant smell. He should also be less likely to wander or fight.

There is a common misconception that a female cat should be allowed to have one litter of kittens before being spayed. This is a myth.

A female cat has no anticipation of motherhood, there is no benefit to the cat from having a litter.

Neutering also decreases the risk of acquiring FeLV (Feline Leukaemia Virus) and FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus). Both of these diseases can be transmitted at the time of mating.

FIV is also commonly seen in males that fight a lot (transmission via saliva). Making them less territorial will therefore decrease the risk of disease.

Both male and female cats can be neutered from five months old (but please be guided by your own vet)
