It is very important to spay or neuter your cats once they are old enough – kittens can get pregnant as early as 4 months old!

Here are just a few benefits of spaying and neutering

• Increase the opportunity for a healthier pet by reducing or eliminating the risk of mammary gland tumors, ovarian and/or uterine cancer, prostate disease, and testicular cancer
• Reduce the number of unwanted cats
• Increase the desire for the pet to stay at home and not roam
• Reduce aggressive and territorial behaviour, and reduces the risk of fighting and catching FIV from a cat bite
• Increase your bonding time by eliminating the mating behaviour – crying incessantly, spraying, attempting to run out the door
