Ocicats Spay & Neuter Information
According to the Cat Fanciers Association “most of the experts acknowledge that there has not been enough scientific information available about the most appropriate age to neuter a pet.” In current practice, the recommended time frame to spay and neuter is usually left quite broad but most will agree that it should be performed sometime before the first heat. In the case of cats, this means that you should spay and neuter before 6 months of age.
When purchasing a kitten from us, you enter into a
legal contract stating that you will spay and neuter before 6 months of age. Not only does spaying and
neutering prevent unwanted pregnancies in cats, but it also prevents cats from spraying/marking their
territory. A little know fact about cats is that both male and female cats will spray when they are not
altered, making an unaltered cat unsuitable to live in your home.
