A scheme named C4 offers free neutering for cats within the M25 area whose owners receive certain state benefits, are on a low income or are students. The scheme also includes neutering of stray cats being temporarily fed.
Neutering offers solid benefits to both male and female cats including:
• Neutered females cannot become pregnant, adding to the number of unwanted kittens. Left un-neutered, a female cat can have up to 18 kittens a year.
• Neutered males are less likely to roam, reducing the risk of them being involved in car accidents
• Neutering means males are less likely to display territorial behaviour such as spraying, while females will not call or wail.
• Neutered males are less likely to fight, reducing the risk of them getting injured or contracting serious diseases such as Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) or Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV)
