Neutering offers solid benefits to both male and female cats including:

 Neutered females cannot become pregnant, adding to the number of unwanted kittens. Left un-

neutered, a female cat can have up to 18 kittens a year.

 Neutered males are less likely to roam, reducing the risk of them being involved in car accidents

 Neutering means males are less likely to display territorial behaviour such as spraying, while

females will not call or wail.

 Neutered males are less likely to fight, reducing the risk of them getting injured or contracting

serious diseases such as Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) or Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV)

Cats Protection believes neutering is an essential part of responsible cat ownership and helps neuter around 152,000 cats and kittens each year. The charity recommends that cats and kittens are neutered from around four months of age.

“Getting your cat neutered is extremely important,” said Lindsay Tempest, Norfolk Adoption Centre manager. Just one unneutered female cat can potentially be responsible for as many as 20,000 offspring in just five years so neutering will help to drive down the number of unwanted kittens in the future

“It also has many benefits for a pet cat’s health by making them less likely to roam, to spray and to fight, reducing the possibility of contracting life-threatening diseases that can be transmitted by bites and saliva.

“It can also cost up to £40 just to have a cat microchipped so taking advantage of this offer will help cat owners to save money as well as giving more peace of mind if a pet cat should ever go missing.

Microchipping involves a small data chip, no bigger than a grain of rice, being inserted under the cat’s skin under the shoulder blades. The details are then stored on a national database and can be accessed by scanning the animal with a special device. Most vets and rescue centres routinely scan all lost cats and can use the information to quickly reunite the missing pet with their owner, provided that owners keep their records on the national database up to date.

The offer, which runs from February 26 to March 26 ios open to cat owners in postcodes PE13, PE14, PE15, PE16 and PE26 at participating vets, call 07926 621 488 to register for the £5 deal.
