Do You Think Fixing Kittens Should Be At A Young Age

Intro

Cats and Kittens In Love is Bryce and Lisa’s creation that presents our concept of LOVE between cats and kittens and humans. Also we present the LOVE between all animals and cats and kittens. Lastly the LOVE that exists between a Mama Cat and her Kittens is a theme that is presented throughout our facebook page (facebook.com/catsandkittensinlove)  and our website (kittensinlove.com).

Howdy all, When to fix kittens has been debated for some time. Some vets are spaying and neutering kittens as yound as 4 weeks.  Many other vets seem reluctant to spay or neuter before 6 months old. ARGONN (Animal Rescue Group of Northern Nevada), the animal rescue group where my wife and I do volunteer work. We tend to fixing kittens earlier rather than later.  This article below will show you the pros and cons of younger or older spay and neuter.

This Young Mama Was Not Spayed

We hear it at the shelter every year around April when phone calls start coming in from people who surprised that their 6- or 7-month-old kitten just gave birth: “Oh, no, I didn’t know that could happen!”

It’s true. Cats can get pregnant as early as 4 months of age. That means those “oops” litters can happen a lot earlier than most people think.

The other shocking fact is that a mother cat can go into heat and get pregnant a week after giving birth, so a female may be nursing one litter while pregnant with another.

And yet another surprise to some is that a cat can have up to three litters of kittens a year. With the average litter size being five kittens, that’s 15 kittens a year.

By spaying your cat before 4 months of age you can stop the accidents before they happen. You’ll save your cat from the stresses that constant motherhood brings, and you’ll save the animal shelter from being overrun with unwanted kittens.
