    I have always been brought up that dogs or cats need to be a minimum of 6-9 months old. For the females it would be after their first heat and with the males it would be after both testicles drop. Jeanniebelle

    I think it can be done younger than you'd expect... and you might want to get it done quickly or you'll be hip deep.

    I think cats see an invisible S on our foreheads (for "Sucker!"). I've adopted 4 over the last 25 years and given away others I've found, and I think most of them got good homes.

    I am a foster person for the local SPCA and we foster the kittens until they are 2 lbs then we take them back. They fix them before you can adopt them. They are around 10 weeks.

    I think I was recently told the males can be neutered at 4 weeks but I am not sure about the females. I always had my animals (cats and dogs) neutered or spayed no later than 8 weeks.
