Cats are prolific breeders; just one unneutered female could have 18 kittens a year.
Cats that are neutered later in life, unfortunately, contribute to the number of unwanted or mistreated cats in the UK. Unneutered cats tend to fight more and roam the streets where they are more likely to be injured or hit by cars.
Cats Protection works hard to find good homes for cats in need, support and encourage the neutering of cats, and improve people's understanding of cats and their care.
Add your name, today, to raise awareness of the importance of neutering cats – pledge to ask your friends with cats to neuter them and stand with Cats Protection to fight and make sure every cat can be happy and healthy and is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.
