If you don’t neuter your cat…

You could have problems

  • If your cat has kittens, do you know enough people to take them on and give them good homes for the rest of their lives?
  • Unneutered tom cats are noisy at night – often for hours on end. They are likely to stray from home, sometimes for weeks at a time and can get into fights.
  • Males spray their territory with smelly urine – neutering stops this or at the least makes them do this less and the smell is not so bad.
  • Entire cats (not neutered) are more at risk from infectious sexually transmitted diseases such as Feline immunodeficiency virus (FiV) and Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) which there is no cure for.

It could cost you

  • Male cats injured in fights or through wandering often need expensive veterinary treatment.
  • A female cat will get pregnant and you will end up with kittens to care for – cats can have up to 18 kittens in a year. Once a female has given birth, she can get pregnant again almost immediately. Kittens cost a lot of money to rear and more importantly, need a lot of time.

Your cat could suffer

  • Unneutered males fight with others, and often get infected wounds, abscesses and serious illness.
  • Unneutered cats roam farther then neutered ones, they are more likely to get lost or have an accident.
  • Your cat would be vulnerable to FiV and FeLV, incurable diseases, from mating or fighting. You would have to keep your cat in for the rest of its life.
  • Unneutered cats are bound to get pregnant or make others pregnant – cats can breed from 4mths.

Free neutering for strays

If you have an un-neutered stray cat that you are feeding, you can take it to “The Vet” and under the Cats Protection Scheme, Strays will be neutered for NO CHARGE. Please make use of this fantastic opportunity and spread the word to anyone you know who may benefit from it.


Cats Protection

Cat Neuter (male & female) – £10

CAT PROTECTION DO AN ASSISTED NEUTERING SCHEME – Most vets are linked up to this Scheme.
How it works:   If you are a cat owner and have a low income, ie. under £15,000 a year, or, if you are claiming benefits, you will generally be eligible to get your cat neutered for £10 through this Scheme. You need to ring around the various vets to find out which are offering this CP Scheme and then you will need to produce evidence to them when taking the cat in for neuter, that you do qualify.  If you are feeding un-neutered strays and are willing to take them in for neuter, the best option is to ring the Head Office of Cat Protection and explain the situation and they will hopefully send you vouchers that you can use to get them neutered. The only time you can get the cat neutered for free at a vets through Cat Protection is if it is actually a feral cat and most feral cats need to be trapped and once neutered, they are then released back to where they came from.
