Re: What aged to get my cat spayed/neuterd

I've heard that many cats still produce milk after spaying. However the place that was spaying my momma cat would not spay her until her milk was dried up. She was spayed when the babies were 12 weeks as I took her the same time we took the baby we kept and the one the next door neighbor kept. She was kept under lock and key literally until her spay (she was kept in an outdoor enclosure).

well, for the momma, just wait until the kittens are done suckling. somehwere between 3 and 4 weeks...i think....not sure.

for the kittens, most shelters do it at 4 weeks old/ 2 lbs. kind of scares me, i waited for my Allie to be 4 months and 4 lbs to spay her.

They do it at 8 weeks/2 lbs, not 4 weeks/2 lbs (just for clarification).

Kittens are usually weaned around 5-6 weeks old but I would keep her indoors (along with her kittens) until they are 8-12 weeks old and adopted out, and she can get spayed and heal nicely indoors without nursing kittens or going outdoors.

oh yeah.......DUH. i know this. Allie was 9 weeks old when we got her and still not spayed because she was 1.6 lbs. TINY liittle girl. I remember they told me 8weeks 2 lbs

if a cat was 2 lbs at 4 weeks old.........that would mean it was going to be HUGE!
