What age are cats spayed

When the time comes, Katrina is spayed at the age of 6 weeks.

What happened to my cat?

Katrina was rescued in the summer of 2016 and then put up for adoption. She was adopted by a very kind, caring family who wanted to make sure that she was spayed.

Katrina is now 4 years old. She’s still a little shy and never lets you get to close to her. She can’t speak, but she definitely knows how to communicate. She loves to play with her toys and she loves to go on car rides with her family. She also loves to ride down the stairs. She will always be a part of the family.

At Coastal Cat Clinic we encourage people to have their kitties spayed/neutered as young as about 4 months of age. This usually corresponds to about 4 pounds body weight.
