You can also remove one or both testicles to prevent future unwanted pregnancies – it’s your choice, but you have to do this before the kitten is eight weeks old.

Spaying/neutering cats occurs at around nine-weeks of age (when they are six months old). It should be done as soon as possible after birth because if left too long, puberty will occur much earlier than usual for that breed of cat. Benefits & Risks: Spayed female cats live longer lives without having any more litters; however neutered males tend to live less healthy lives due many medical complications resulting from hormones associated with castration surgery
