What age can you get cat spayed
Long ago, the practice of spaying or neutering was reserved for cats who were about to go into heat, or were about to have puppies, or were very old. In recent years, however, there has been a great deal of pressure on the spaying and neutering of cats. In some areas, the old practice of spaying or neutering a cat has been changed to a late-in-life only spaying or neutering, with the idea that cats who have already lived a long time should be allowed to have kittens and live out their lives.
In some areas, the laws have changed so that cats are not spayed or neutered unless they are older than a certain age. In other areas, the laws have not changed, and the cat is spayed or neutered at any age. In the US, cat spaying and neutering laws have changed many times, and will continue to change as the veterinary profession and the animal rights movement continue to lobby for or against the spaying and neutering laws.

Is cat spaying or neutering painful?
Cat spaying or neutering is always painful. It's not painful because of the operation itself, but because of the anesthesia that is used. The anesthesia makes the experience of the surgery much more painful. Unless the cat is already very old or already has arthritis or other medical conditions that make the surgery painful, I try to find a time when the cat is not in heat and the cat is not already pregnant to do the spaying or neutering.
What is the difference between spaying and neutering?
Spaying involves removing the ovaries and uterus. The ovaries produce the hormones that make cats female, and the uterus is the organ that holds the eggs until they are ready to be released. These two organs are removed at the same time.
Neutering involves removing the testicles, which are the male organ that releases the sperm. (The testicles are a pair of small, oval organs that are located under the skin of the scrotum, usually on each side of the penis. They help to make sperm.)
You can spay a female cat at any time of life.
John Bradshaw is a cat-behavior expert at the University of Bristol and the author of the new book Cat Sense. After observing pet cats for several years, he's come to an intriguing conclusion: They don't really understand us the way dogs do. Bradshaw recently shared some of his insights with National Geographic. Read more
spraying early... a male cat neutered before 8 months of age wont develop the big jowls tom cats develop (the wide jawline) but will reach a normal mature height and weight if neutered young, so i personally see absolutly no reason to wait past 6 months and assuming its a normal sized cat, 4 months is perfectly fine (runts/sickly or naturally smal.

So why do female and neutered male cats spray? It is not about dominance or territory, says Dr. Cindi Cox of the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston. Cats might spray because of underlying medical conditions, litter box issues, or anxiety, the latter being most common cause. Read more
Neutering an adult dog will hardly ever effect dog aggression or handler aggression. In fact, studies have shown that neutering adult females often makes them more dog aggressive rather than less dog aggressive. While I can count over twenty different areas or types of dog aggression, handler aggression and people aggression are the most common types of aggression that lead people to ask about neutering their dogs.
