North Liverpool Cat Neuter Project
Around 85% of litters of kittens are unplanned! It’s a frightening fact that female kittens can themselves become pregnant before they are 5 months old. Spaying your female cat/kitten will prevent unwanted pregnancies and neutering your male cat/kitten will help ensure he doesn’t add to the unwanted population by impregnating un-spayed females! Neutering will also lessen the urge to wander off (in search of a mate) and remove the likelihood of injury due to fighting over females.
Did you know? Un-neutered males routinely become lost or are killed on our busy roads!
There are also many health benefits involved with neutering such as a reduced chance of developing mammary cancer and protection from the serious uterine condition pyometra. Add to this less likelihood of unwanted behaviours such as territory marking and there are benefits to be had all around.
