Neutering your kitten

Follow Us on Facebook

We recommend having your male kitten neutered at 4-6 months of age.  Neutering involves removing both testicles.  Although routine, it is a major procedure, which is why we take extra precautions to ensure our kitten’s safety and recovery.

There are many health and behavioral benefits to having your kitten neutered,  including:

•    Significantly reduced chance of prostate Infections and prostate cancer

•    Eliminates possibility of testicular cancer

•    Won’t be as likely to urine-mark at home

•    Can significantly reduce aggressive behaviors

His personality will not change due to neutering, and he will not get “fat” unless you over-feed him and do not allow him enough exercise!

Did you know?

Un-neutered male cats have the highest incidence of vehicular trauma (being hit by cars) and fighting?
Since intact males are always on the look-out for females in heat, they tend to have a much stronger ‘roaming’ instinct, which can often lead them into trouble!  Frustration from excess testosterone can promote fighting, urine marking and unnecessary aggression.
