I wasn't quite sure where to put this. At what age do you get a cat fixed? I didn't think our kitty was old enough but she is starting to go into heat.

You can get them spayed as soon as they are over two pounds. Generally about 3 months, give or take. Some vets refuse to spay until 5-6 months though.
They can go into heat as early as 4 months, although typically it is around the 6 month mark, give or take.
How old is your girl?
IMO its best to get them done around 3-4 months old. Shelters get them done at about 8 weeks if they weigh at least 2 lbs.
Ling was not done till she was 5-6 months old cause she came into heat when we were to schedule her. So I waited for another month.
Charlie was neutered by his breeder at 3 or 3 1/2 months old.
