My little kittie is the only cat we have and the only cat we are going to have! She is an inside only. Should we even bother? I know its a big thing but she will never get a chance to go outside. Once again just want some different input.
Definitely! As well as you think you have her locked in, being in heat will drive her to find any way out possibke. It will also attract all of your local tomcats you will be trying to sneak in. Finally, spaying lowers her risk of certain types of cancers and provides relief from the insanity of a heat.
Well I would guess she is about 3 months I will not no till I make a vet appt. The reason for that is my aunt found her a a truck stop She was real sick. But lucky for my cat my aunt used to be a vet!!! So my aunt kept her till she was well and called me and asked me if I wanted her!! Now we Love her we have not had her that long. I mean when we got her she did not even have all her teeth!!
Most people will say wait until 6 months but it can be done much earlier. The humane society here does it at 8 weeks so that all kittens will be fixed before adoption. Three of my four were adopted from there so they were fixed VERY young and I haven't had any problems. I forget what age Dr. Jean recommends...I'm sure she'll see this and respond ASAP.
