What age should a cat be neutered or spayed
It is important to remember that cats are a social animal and neutering or spaying is a very important step in taking care of them. If done at a young age, the cat can be sociable and well socialised. You should also be sure that the surgery is done by a good veterinarian and that the cat is put in a well-equipped clinic. There is a risk of infection and if done at a young age, the cat could be at risk for other serious health issues.

Now her purring is quite loud and selective, purring for me and only one or two guests. The 4 year old male has just begun purring. His purr is very quite and only occurs when he is very satisfied.

The younger female was not spayed until half a year ago (all the others were spayed/neutered when we got them). The only thing I noticed is that she got a lot more food-centric and thus gained a few half-kilos (which is a good thing in her case, as she was quite thin before).
