Nine charities get together

World Spay Day - 26 February 2019

Nine of the UK’s animal welfare charities* have joined forces to promote World Spay Day 2019 to encourage cat owners to have their cats spayed. Spaying protects cats from getting pregnant - this is also known as neutering, fixing or being done.

World Spay Day logoRecent research has shown that 70% of litters in the UK are unplanned.

Our advice is simple - have your cat spayed at four months to protect her from getting pregnant. Male cats should be neutered too, to protect them catching diseases and getting nasty injuries from fighting - a male cat which hasn’t been neutered is much more likely to fight over a female mate. Neutering can also help to stop male cats from spraying indoors - which can be really smelly. He’s also more likely to stay close to home as a neutered male cat is less likely to stray.

If you are on benefits or low income and need your cat to be neutered/spayed, contact Linda on 01353-699430
