Cats Protection’s Northampton volunteer, Diana Johnson, Publicity and Home Visiting, said: "Cats are prolific breeders, with one female capable of having up to 18 kittens a year. They can start breeding at a very young age, so we recommend cats are neutered from four months old.
“Cats that are neutered lead happier, healthier lives and having your cat neutered is one of the most important ways to protect their welfare. A neutered cat is less likely to spray, less likely to roam and also less likely to fight. Neutering also helps guard against disease as fighting cats are more at risk of life-threatening diseases that can be transmitted through biting and saliva.”
Participants will need full details of their cat or kitten and also the details of their local vet.
