How much to spay a cat


How much to spay a cat?

So about 4 months ago i got a male cat from my neighbor (bought as a kitty from a yard sale a few weeks ago) the neighbor didn't want it. Then he saw me with it and knew it was an indoor cat. Since then I've had him in my garage for about 10 days at a time and he came out at night to eat and play. He's been playing in the garden for the last month. I don't know how old he is but he has a large black spot under his neck, his nails are long (about 5 inches) and he's always so full of energy. He comes and goes like the wind, no where to be seen and no way to catch him. He's always eating and he doesn't want to go outside. I'm sorry for this long story, I just don't know how to answer any of your questions. He's not house trained either.

I think that the cat should be spayed or neutered at 7 years old, the vet's advice. There is a link that shows this, if I remember right. I found it on the internet. A good number of cats are born into the world and get to be a year old and the parents usually abandon them.

This link says they think a kitten who gets spayed when he is 6 weeks old is the same as a 7 year old cat: http://www.webmd.com/diseases/guide/cat-spay-neuter-vs-kitten

Here's another link with info for cat owners on how to spay/neuter a cat: http://www.vetinfo.com/cat-spay-neuter-information.html

Please keep in mind that all these vet sources are just for humans. Some species can require different types of surgeries to deal with specific issues. We need to be sure to find out about any specific needs and address them as well as possible.

Spay Neuter?by: Anonymous

Thank you for sharing this very important info. I don't have pets at the moment but I think it's important for responsible cat owners to know how to spay/neuter their cats. It's important that cats be spayed and neutered. I've heard many horror stories about cats being left to their own devices.

Neutering and Vaccinatingby: Mary

Thanks for the article, Mary. Neutering a cat is something that I knew that was beneficial, but I didn't realize that it could also help them with anemia, and help them avoid the risk of testicular cancer in the future.

Sterilization?by: Anonymous

Hello,

As far as I understand, that the sterilization is an option only to keep down the number of unwanted kittens. In the article it says, that the best reason for sterilizing is the overpopulation problem. And because of this problem, I have many questions:

If a lot of cats are sterilized, the population is limited, so if in the same household a new cat is born, is it very likely that the cat will be a female? Isn't it possible that the same female cat just had kittens before the sterilization?

Why is it necessary to sterilize a cat so often, if the overpopulation problem is actually solved?

And what is the difference between the sterilization and the neuter?
