A neutered cat is happier and healthier…
- They’re less likely to get serious diseases through mating
- Your cat will fight less, meaning fewer injuries and therefore lower vet bills
- Neutering will stop your female cat getting some cancers
Neutering could make YOUR life easier too!
- Your neutered male is less likely to roam, so there’s less chance he’ll be hit by a car
- He’s also less likely to spray smelly urine in your house and garden
- Got a female cat? No more being woken up by her wailing when she’s in heat!
Kittens are hard work!
- They are very cute but hard work. Their care takes time, effort and money – think of the food bills and the ‘accidents’ you’ll have to clean up!

- Cats can breed from four months of age
