Default Litter mates in for spay/neuter

My kittens are 4 months old and will be going in for their spay/neuter very soon.

Is it better to get them fixed at the same time or one at a time?

few years ago my two females were up for spay and I had the same dilemma. I was stressed out of having two females after spay surgery at once (and they were first spays for me), but we did it and it actually turned out very well. I had kitty hospital for few days at home, they both spent first night in separate carriers to avoid jumping and running after the surgery. but at least they were in the same situation

how many of them do you have?

I had the same problem with my dogs i wish i had them done at the same time as the girl wanted to curl up in bed with the boy but he was out of sorts and a little aggressive, it all worked out fine in the end and after a few days he back to his usual self and would allow her to be by his side. Hope this helped

I would do it all at the same time so you don't have to make many trips to the vet.

I also agree with having them done at the same time. We had Midnight and her two sons, Star and Lucky, spayed and neutered at the same time. The only thing I would have done differently is have Star and Lucky in a different carrier than Midnight. Since they were still nursing a bit (more for comfort than anything), they tried to nurse on her after her spay. She wouldn't let them, but having the three of them in the same carrier, while there was room because the boys were still kittens at the time, in hindsight wasn't very smart on our part.

We have 2 kittens that we kept after fostering a litter of 6 earlier this year.





The one on the upper left is Lily. The classy one all splayed out is Minu.

We were leaning towards getting them done at the same time. I'd be concerned about how they do apart. They never have been apart and are quite attached to each other.
