When it comes to contraception and neutering for their own cats, animal lovers are often unsure. Neutering at an early stage appears to be essential when looking at cats without owners and overcrowded animal homes. But is it going to affect my cat if I deny it the chance to have offspring? What is the right moment for neutering? What makes temporary procedures different from neutering? And when is the right time for the procedure to take place?
Regardless of whether you have a cat from an animal shelter a home or acquired one from a breeder, the question of potentially neutering your feline friend will have come up at some point. Cats from animal shelters are often already neutered before they are re-homed and as long as you aren't interested in founding a cattery, neutering is also recommended for pedigree cats.
