I do understand that breeders not only want the breed lines to stay pure but to also be improved upon, but I have to say these "oops" kittens are absolutely adorable.
I would never deny the cuteness.
All 3 are adorable. I am going to place 2 links for you to read, one is regarding pediatric spay and neuter, also referred to as early altering, as well as the studies that have been done on pediatric spay and neuter that shows many of the benefits of early altering kittens.http://www.winnfelinehealth.org/repo...ly-neuter.htmlhttp://www.winnfelinehealth.org/heal...ay-neuter.html
I have a 5 year old that was altered at 11 weeks old, and has not had any health issues, and it was so nice to have our pet come to us neutered, and not have to worry about it being done later.
Since then, my vet has done many, many spays and neuters, between 10-12 weeks of age, with out ever any problem. The incision is very small, and the kittens come home with the littermates and Mom, healing time is quick, and you really can't tell they have even went through the spay or neuter surgery.
If you have any questions regarding my experiences with early altering kittens, please feel free to PM or email me.
