Once this information is received, a reference number will be given to you. A reference number will not be issued unless all of the information is provided. Proof of address may be required.

This is the ideal opportunity to get cats spayed/neutered now.

The importance of spaying/neutering:

Kittens can become pregnant at between 4 and 6 months old.

They can mate with their siblings. (Sick and deformed from inbreeding)

A gestation period of 2 months.

Spay at 2 months (approximately 2lb in weight). Spay after first heat.

Cats can stay in heat constantly but generally 2 to 3 times a year and for several weeks at a time and for all of their of lives. (No menopause). It is possible to have 5 or 6 litters per year. And can become pregnant by more than one Tom at a time.
