Help prevent a kitten crisis during the COVID-19 pandemic

During the pandemic many vet practices will not be neutering cats and kittens.  Many vets are struggling with limited resources and are having to prioritise emergency appointments. This means access to neutering will be limited and availability varies from practice to practice.

To help avoid unwanted pregnancies, it may help to follow some of the guidelines detailed below.

  • Keep intact (un-neutered) cats indoors to prevent unplanned litters

  • Contact your local vet to discuss whether you can book ahead for a neutering operation

  • Keep your  intact (un-neutered) kitten indoors – cats can get pregnant from as young as four months of age

  • Keep brothers and sisters separated – cats will mate with their siblings

  • Vet care is restricted at present, avoid your cat becoming pregnant, all pregnancies have health risks

  • Re-homing kittens has become difficult, many animal charities have limited capacity to accept kittens

Protect Your Cat From Becoming Pregnant

We are offering a free neutering service at present
Please contact the RSPCA Bromley and District branch for more information
Below are some notes to help you make informed decisions

Contact your local vets now to see what their current situation is.  Ask if they are able to book your cat(s) or kitten(s) in at all.
To help prevent unplanned litters keep your un-neutered cat indoors and away from other un-neutered cats.  Toys, puzzles and lots of interactive play time with you will help keep their mind stimulated and help prevent their frustration and anxiousness at being kept indoors.
Female kittens can become pregnant from as young as four months old. It is important to keep them indoors until they have been neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.
Kittens from the same litter can mate just as easily as kittens from different litters.  If they are not neutered yet then they could have a little of their own very soon!  Keep the male and female cats separated until they have been neutered.
During this pandemic you might be tempted to let your cat have some cute little kittens.  This is certainly not the time to allow this.  Cats can have many complications during pregnancy and during birthing, with vetinary practices being stretched to their limits, it’s best to have your cat neutered. There is a huge number of unwanted cats and kittens in the UK, we’d advise that you avoid your cat getting pregnant at this time.
In seven years, one female cat and her offspring can produce an incredible 370,000 kittens*!

There are people who still believe their cat or dog should be allowed to have one litter before they are spayed.  Spaying or neutering will only reduce or eliminate behaviors that you don’t want, aggression and urine marking.  Neutered males are less likely to roam, fight, or mark their territory.  Spayed females experience less hormone-related moodiness, stress and discomfort endured during heat periods.
Sterilised animals live longer, happier lives. The single most important thing we can do to save cats and dogs from all the suffering and death that their overpopulation causes is to have them spayed or neutered.
