Most cats will require some pain relief after their surgery. They will be given an injection of local anaesthetic to numb the area before the procedure takes place.

The neutering procedure involves the following steps:

The animal is sedated for a short period of time and then anaesthetised.

The scrotum is cut off and the remaining testicles are removed.

A small incision is made in the skin to remove the testicles.

The incision is closed with stitches and the skin is stitched up.

The cat's body is washed and the incision site is covered with gauze.

The cat is allowed to recover from the anaesthetic, usually in the recovery area in the vet's surgery.

Your cat will be able to move around freely.

You may need to bring your cat to see the vet at regular intervals to check on his or her recovery.

Your cat's incision site will begin to heal within a few days, and will close up over the next few weeks.

Some cats have a slightly different purr for when they’re hungry, and mother cats also use their purr to communicate with their newly birthed kittens.

It’s common knowledge that cats are fans of milk, but many of them are actually lactose intolerant. While kittens can drink their mother’s milk, feeding them cow’s milk could be very dangerous to their health. Read more
