Spaying your Cat

catFemale cats start coming into season about 5-6 months of age depending on day length.

They will “call” every 3 weeks for 2-3 days until mated or spayed, crouching down and crying out – a sign often mistaken by owners for pain.

They can become pregnant from about 5 months of age which is why it is very important not to let your cat outside until after she has been spayed.

Only rarely do we see weight increases in spayed cats.

See more information about breeding your cat and pregnancy.
