Robyn....I have 2 cats....both of which were spayed/neutered before they turned 6 months of age. I volunteer at a rescue group where all the kittens/cats we place are spayed/neutered. There is a distinct difference between members who are registered/responsible breeders (like Gayef) and those who have found themselves with an accidental pregnant cat.

As a general rule, TCS is primarily concerned with cat welfare. Because of our strong committment to responsible cat care and treatment, we do promote and strongly encourage a pro-spay/neuter policy here. Unless you are an experienced, responsible, ethical breeder of pedigreed cats, we do not advocate breeding. We feel strongly that you should spay and neuter your pets so it should not at all surprise or offend you when we tell you so in our replies to your posts.
It's important to remember that this site does have responsible pedigreed cat breeders...however, just as the guidelines state...unless you are a registered breeder we do recommend that you have your cat spayed once she has weaned her kittens.
