Cat Neutering and Spaying

Spaying and neutering are surgical procedures to remove reproductive organs. Spaying or neutering your kitten prevents him or her from having unwanted offspring. It also decreases the number of kittens/cats that end up in shelters or are summoned to a life on the streets. It also has very important health and behaviour benefits for your cat.

What is spaying or neutering?


Spaying and neutering are surgical procedures used to remove the reproductive organs. Spaying is the removal of the uterus and ovaries of a female cat. It is performed under general anesthesia and most often involves an overnight stay in the hospital. Complications are rare and recover normally within 10 days. Neutering is also carried out under general anesthesia and removes the male cat’s testicles. The small wound that results usually heal in about a week. These procedures are also sometimes referred to as “sterilizing” or “fixing” pets.

When should I neuter/spay my cat?


These procedures are generally recommended for kittens before they reach sexual maturity at about 5-6 months old. This gives your kitten time to grow and mature enough to safely undergo general anesthesia.

How to help injured and orphaned wild animals

Below are a few suggestions should you come across injured or orphaned wildlife.  First, you need to determine if the wild animal is indeed injured or abandoned without putting yourself in harm’s way. Try not to have too much contact with the animal or to disturb the surroundings. If you are unsure, it is best that you leave it be and call a wildlife specialist to notify them about the animal and its location. Certain animals like rabbits and deer often leave their young alone for long periods throughout the day. If it appears healthy and well, do not disturb the animal.
