Cats Protection Neutering At Cats Protection, we are very aware that cats are often neutered too late in life when they have already produced at least one litter of kittens. Where there were only two cats, now there is suddenly a litter of six.

Neutering is the only effective way to reduce the number of unwanted cats in the UK. We recommend that pet cats are neutered at four months of age or younger, before they start puberty, to prevent unplanned pregnancies.

To find a local vet who will Neuter cats from 4 month old you can search on the Cats Protection Early Neuter Register
