Please Neuter your Pets...

Meet Polo.The first stray cat of 2024 to be trapped by RSPCA Milton Keynes and North Bucks Branch volunteers.

Sadly Polo is yet another entire male cat to be reported to the Branch with injuries received from fighting with other males.

PLEASE, PLEASE do the responsible thing and NEUTER your cat before it starts to venture outside.

Cats DO NOT need to procreate!

Female cats that aren’t spayed often come into season over and over again, which means they can be almost continuously in heat. This can be exhausting and usually attracts a queue of amorous and vocal tomcats to the house.

Unneutered male cats tend to urine-mark their territory, including your house, with a powerful and unpleasant scented urine. Neutering reduces their chance of catching feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), an incurable disease similar to HIV in humans which is spread by saliva usually from bite wounds during fights.

Sadly, neutering came too late for Polo. He has FIV.

If your cat or kitten isn’t yet neutered, please, we urge you - contact your veterinarian immediately and get him or her booked in. Kittens can be neutered from 3-5 months or 1-2 kilograms in weight, depending upon the practice.

In the meantime, if you are interested in becoming a monthly donor for our Branch to help give cats like Polo a future, we would be most grateful.
