  • Recommended age for spay/neutering is 2-6 months of age.
  • Female animals should be spayed BEFORE the first heat. They do not need to have a litter before spaying.
  • FOA certificates are not valid for a cat if the cat is to be declawed. Cats need their claws for protection and for their physical and mental well-being. Declawing is painful, cruel and psychologically damaging.
