This World Spay Day the RSPCA is urging pet owners to protect their cats from having unplanned litters of kittens. Recent research revealed that 85 per cent of litters are a mistake.
This is mainly because people don’t realise cats can get pregnant from as young as four months - while they are still kittens themselves.
Our research shows that pet owners find the reality of having these kittens not what they imagined and the overwhelming response at that point from cat owners was ‘never again’! Allowing your cat to be spayed or snipped also saves them from health risks.
