Kitten neutering

At the National Cat Adoption Centre, we are very aware that cats are often neutered too late in life when they have already produced at least one litter of kittens. Where there were only two cats, now there is suddenly a litter of six.

Neutering is the only effective way to reduce the number of unwanted cats in the UK.

We recommend that pet cats are neutered at four months of age or younger, before they start puberty, to prevent unplanned pregnancies.

This short video shows what is involved when neutering male and female kittens and discusses the benefits of the procedure.


Cats Protection and the National Cat Adoption Centre believe that having your cat neutered is an essential part of responsible cat ownership.
