Where are my bits?
Did you see the article about Milo who was very perturbed to come round after an anaesthetic to discover he has some parts missing? You can view it here - http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/devastated-cat-definitely-isnt-feline-6116247
This is a hilarious story which amused the Cats Protection Camberley & District committee during our last meeting, and it comes at a good time as we are inundated with kittens at the moment and are thinking about ways we can try to help the local community understand the importance of neutering.
Did you know that cats can breed from 4 months of age and we have seen this in our local branch – a 4 month old kitten, pregnant with a litter of kittens (I kid you not!). The maths of it is basically that 1 single female can produce 20,000 descendants in just 5 years – it really is shocking.
We believe that neutering cats early, is the only way to control the cat population and to reduce the number of stray and unwanted cats – we think it is part of responsible pet ownership and we are committed to supporting local people who want to do the right thing. We work hard all year to raise funds and we spend some of these funds helping people on low incomes or benefits to get their cats neutered.
To find out more about neutering, take a look at our neutering leaflet which not only explains the process but highlights some additional benefits for you and your cat. If you have an unneutered cat, please consider getting them snipped – Milo may look shocked but he’ll feel better for it in the long run!
