What age can you neuter a male cat

Why does my cat lick its butt?

I have a 2 year old male cat and he is starting to pee on the floor and eat his poop. Any suggestions?

My cat is almost 4 years old, he is eating and drinking fine, and is in good health. He has a bath once a month, he is on a good diet, and he sees the vet every year.

There is no scientific justification for this; it is just generally accepted. Cat owners fear that it may be detrimental to the health animals, or that anesthesia administered during such a procedure might be deadly for young kitties. This is largely believed because cat owners are intimidated by myths. Under US law, animal shelters must transfer spayed/neutered animals to new owners. It’s no secret that small kittens are more probable to find a... Read more
