I'm looking for a kitten, and would rather adopt than purchase one from a breeder or pet store. As I'm looking through the adoptables on shelter pages, a lot of them say they have already spayed or neutered the kitten as young as only a few weeks/months old. I know they do this so there won't be any doubt that the animal will be fixed, but how does this effect the cat? I know in ferrets the early spay/neuter is suspected to be the cause for onset of adrenal problems but I don't know if there is a similar downfall for cats. I've always waited until about 6 months old before getting it done.
