Or ask your vet at what weight/age they prefer to neuter kitties.13 July, 2010 at 2:40 pm #573783
I am having Jax neutered at 4 months. If you read books, they say 4-6 months. I am doing mine the earliest that my vet said was ok for his weight and age because I really don’t want the hormones to kick in and some people have even had male kittens that sexually matured at 3 and half months. My vet said 4 months is fine. I think you can wait, but I just didn’t want any sexual behaviors or spraying or whatever is that they do to happen.13 July, 2010 at 2:58 pm #573784
They can usually go it as early as 2 months if he’s at least 2 lbs and his testes have dropped. I think 4-6 months is pretty standard.13 July, 2010 at 5:58 pm #573785
I am planning on taking Hurley in at 4 months, like everyone else I dont want those hormones to start kicking in before he goes in. Enough hormones and he is going to want out and that cant happen where we live, possums, skunks, a billion bunnies, squirrels,a hawk or two, and the pack of coyotes living in the waterway behind my house are not good friends for my baby kitty.
I was ready to have it done last month but the vet thought waiting was good.13 July, 2010 at 6:01 pm #573786
Hurley Curley is SO cute! Just say no to teenage hormones tee hee. I also read that it’s good to let their urinary tract and stuff to develop a little bit before you do it.13 July, 2010 at 7:07 pm #573787
good so i have some time i want to get it done as early a possible since i have logan who is also a male he is neutered but i guessed freeway would do the spraying if not nuetered. freeway will never be an outside cat but well it has to be done and the earlier the better i think i will call the vet a ask i guess i should have done that in the first place but i havent really picked a vet yet and i want the vet that nueters him to be the permanent vet13 July, 2010 at 7:08 pm #573788
Well, it’s not neuturing (spaying for me) but the first time Rox had her shots the vet was wanting me to schedule a spa day for her! She was 2 months/3lbs and I looked at her and said NO! She’s my little baby girl lol Well, I am getting her done next month I think. She will have had all of her shots and will be 5 months and she weighs 4.5lbs now. I know you can get them done so young but just the thought of my little girl coming home with a big girl scar on her tummy It makes me a little sad she is growing up so quick…
Besides, the younger you get them done, the quicker they bounce back. Although Hurley and Jax will have a better go of it than Rox since neutering is much less envasive than spaying. *sigh* and less expensive…oh well!13 July, 2010 at 7:11 pm #573789
Yes I can totally understand that Roxysmeowmy. The surgery for girlie cats seems to be a bigger deal.
