Our kittens are sold as pets and not for breeding, so they must be spayed or neutered by 6-7 months of age. There is a list of reasons why you should spay/neuter your kitten. By the age of 7-8 months the kitten reaches puberty, his body starts to produce hormones and breeding instinct-related behavior appears. That means that your cat will try to find or attract the mate meanwhile delivers a lot of inconvenience to the owner. It's easy to avoid such behavior if spay or neuter kitten before puberty. At the same time, spay/neuter shouldn't be done too early because it may cause developmental delays. This is why we don't do that while the kitten is in the cattery. But the main reason to spay/neuter the cat is to protect them from some serious health problems later in life. For example, the surgery radically reduces the risk of uterine infections and breast cancer in females and prostatic hyperplasia and testicular cancer in males.
Remember that cats are driven by hormones, not by emotions, so they not gonna get a melancholy due to the inability to have kittens. After spay/neuter both the owner and a cat will have a better and calmer life.
We require New Owner to send us proof of spaying/neutering when it gets done, otherwise, a fee of the double price of the kitten will apply. You can get more details about the procedure of spaying/neutering from your veterinarian.
