Cat Neutering and Spaying

Controlling cat populations is very important to us. Any cat, indoor or outdoor, should be spayed/neutered to prevent unwanted pregnancies, and decrease the risk of certain cancers. Kittens can reproduce any time after they are sexually mature, which is by six months of age. Females will go into heat anytime there is a male in the vicinity, which means it can be nearly impossible to predict when this will happen.

What is spaying or neutering?


This is the surgical removal of sex organs that allow cats to reproduce. “Spay” is the female surgery, “Neuter/Castration” is the male surgery.

When should I neuter/spay my cat?


We see most kittens around 5-7 months of age for surgery; when they have grown to a medium size and can better tolerate anesthesia.

What is the procedure to spay/neuter a cat?


Spay surgery involves the removal of the reproductive organs from the abdomen. Neuter surgery consists of the removal of the testicles from the scrotal sacs.
