Soon to be Cheetoh owner.

Hello. My name is Chris, and June 17th I'll be picking up 2 Cheetoh kittens. A boy, and a girl. The boy at the moment is an off white-ish base with brown spots. The girl is a light silver base with black spots. Their names are Meowleister Crowley, and the girl is Silvia. I'm here in hopes of talking with other Cheetoh cat owners, and hear their experiences with them. I'm interested in knowing thoughts on waiting longer than my breeder wats to to fix my boy cat. I hear early neutering can stunt full growth, and increase the chances of leg issues. I do understand that the first litter of cheetohs ever born could still be alive. So it's hard to tell these thing. I'm vet much looking forward the day I can bring them home, and post more pics on here as they grow.

Welcome! It sounds like your breeder is being very responsible, although I'm not sure why she's not getting the girl fixed, too. Kittens can be fixed at two months old as long as they weigh at least two pounds, that's when my bratz were fixed. It doesn't stunt their growth and I have no idea how it could possibly affect their legs. I haven't heard that one before.

They're so cute.

There is evidence that early neutering can cause issue in dogs, but I haven't seen anything about cats. One article I read specifically indicated that it's not an issue in cats. I have read that early neutering can affect some aspects of a male cat's physical appearance...he probably won't have the heavy jowly look of an unneutered tom cat, but we're not talking about stunted growth or leg issues. When does your breeder want you to neuter. 6 months is a pretty acceptable time frame. The longer you wait after 6 months means a higher risk of developing bad behavior issues like marking which can be very difficult to break once started. When is the female to be spayed? Holly's littermate went into her first heat at 4 months. It's not common, but it can happen. So you want to make sure that one of them is taken care of by that age, it would be totally unhealthy for her to become pregnant that young.

Holly, Misty & their friend, Jake, the dog.

Yes, I know I need a new signature pic...someday...
