What Is Neutering?
Neutering in male cats is known as castration.
Neutering in female cats is known as spaying.
Neutering is done to prevent unwanted pregnancies, prevent cancers of reproductive organs, and in some cases help with difficult behaviours (although that is not guaranteed).
What Are The Benefits Of Neutering Your Cat?
Neutered cats have fewer medical problems, live longer on average, don’t add to the pet overpopulation problem, and make more loving and rewarding pets.
When Should I Neuter My Cat?
It is recommended that cats are neutered at around four months of age, before they reach puberty and after they have completed their primary vaccination course.
