Neutering

Neutering is a very important part of being a responsible cat owner. There are thousands of unwanted kittens born each year. Vouchers are available for part of the cost of neutering if you are on a low income. Neutering can have many benefits for your cat which are listed below:

Male cats

-Will become less likely to roam (reducing the risk of being run over or going missing). 

-Will become less likely to fight (thus improving their chances of avoiding serious diseases, like feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and feline leukaemia virus (FeLV), transmitted by cat bites and reproductive activity. 

-Will be less likely to mark their territory with urine (spraying). 

Female cats

-Can avoid unwanted pregnancies (It is NOT beneficial for a female cat to have a litter before spaying - this is a myth).

-Won't call and wail during their sexual cycle.

-Will be less likely to contract diseases spread by bites and reproductive activity.

-Cats recover very quickly from neutering operations but we'd recommend following your vet's advice on how to look after your cat following their operation.
