A recent post reminded me of this subject. It appears now instead of six months, the recommended age to spay/neuter is as little as 7 weeks. Do you all agree? I can't help but think of a small female cat I found as a stray. She was estimated at 8-12 months old, but I disagreed. The cat was barely 5 lbs., and I just didn't believe she was that old. Her teeth, manners, etc., led me to believe she was much younger. I was assured she was "old enough" though, so I went ahead with their advice and spayed her. To make a long story short, the cat almost died as a result. Turns out the cat really was MUCH younger. The anesthesia was too strong and that's what almost killed her...
