Today is the best day to prevent a pregnancy from happening and from a litter being born.
So when to spay? Before they reproduce! There is no physical or mental difference in a kitten that is 5 months old or 6 months old, except that they can get pregnant as early as 4 months — so please don’t delay in getting your kitten fixed early. It’s safe and being done every day by experienced veterinarians.
All adoptable kittens should be spayed/neutered before adoption, as early as 8 weeks old and 2 pounds. The surgery is quicker then, and kittens recover faster than older cats.
The same thing is true for puppies and dogs — spay before the first heat cycle to avoid an unwanted litter.
