Neutering

tabby cat

Most people are surprised when we tell them their kitten will reach sexual maturity at four months of age. Therefore, we recommend neutering from this age.

At Just Cats we offer great value neutering for cats as we passionately believe in the benefits of neutering your pets to ensure they live happier and healthier lives.

Neutering or spaying increases your cat’s chances for a longer and healthier life.

  • A neutered cat is a better pet for your family.
  • Spaying eliminates the risk of certain cancers.
  • You are helping to alleviate the cat overpopulation problem.

Speak to us today if you would like to discuss further any aspect of neutering your cat and we’ll be happy to help.

We recommend neutering for female cats for the following reasons:

  • To lower the risk of mammary tumours
  • To lower the risk of womb infection (pyometra)
  • To expel the risk of complications during pregnancy and birth
  • To help with population control
  • To help with welfare issues as unwanted kittens are often neglected
  • When sexually active female cats will call for a mate, an entire male. This can cause unwanted and antisocial behaviour such as fighting which can end up in one or both cats getting hurt.

We recommend neutering male cats for the following reasons:

  • To lower the risk of fighting and becoming hurt
  • To lower the risk of infection as unneutered males are more likely to fight and spread disease like feline leukopenia virus (feLV) and Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) through saliva from bite wounds
  • To lower the risk of the male cat roaming to find a mate. Often male cats roam far and do not return home during this process which can be worrying for owners and dangerous for the cat
  • To help with population control
  • To help minimise aggression 
  • To help minimise spraying.
