A blog brought to you by Sarah, the Volunteer Publicity officer at Cats Protection Camberley & District - Mainly just my feline related ramblings but hopefully some fun and some useful advice. All posts are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of Cats Protection
We are slap bang in the middle of kitten season and we have
more locally homeless kittens than we know what to do with.
One example of this is the gorgeous Sasha who was straying
in the local area with her adorable litter of 6 kittens who were approximately
1 week old.Luckily for Sasha, one of
our expert kitten fosterers, Rosie, had some space available and could take
them in.All the kittens, including
Dexter (pictured below) have been lucky enough to find new homes.

However, that is not always the case and therefore we are
still pushing the message of neutering.
We believe that getting your cat neutered us an essential
part of responsible cat ownership.
From around 4 months of age, cats cat be sexually active
(scary isn’t it!) so we recommend that cats are neutered at 4 months old.The procedure is very routine and poses very
little risk.Your cat will need a day at
the vets and will be given a general anaesthetic.Your vet will provide information about feeding
beforehand as well as aftercare and recovery.
As well as eradicating unwanted pregnancies it can prevent
some cancers and infections, it reduces straying, fighting and spraying.
