When a male cat is neutered both testicles are removed under a general anaesthetic. Because the wounds are very small sutures are not necessary and the wound heals very quickly.
Almost all tomcats in Holland are neutered. Through neutering we hope to prevent fighting, car accidents and spraying. Neutering also helps to reduce the number of stray cats.
Neutering can be done from six months old.
People who receive maintenance can obtain help from the Animal Protection Organisation to fund the cost of getting their pet neutered.
