Sterilisation

We do not encourage breeding of any kind and strongly urge pet owners to act responsibly by spaying and neutering all of their pets. Large numbers of cats are destroyed across United Arab Emirates (and the world in general) each year because there are far more cats born than homes can be found.

 

Cats can reach sexual maturity as early as 4 months, at which point they become capable of mating and producing offspring. The best age to carry out the sterilisation procedure is around 4-6 months, depending on the growth of the kitten. Two cats (male & female) will produce 20,000 kittens in just 5 years, taking the kittens of the kittens into account like a pyramid effect. The procedure can be done at any stage of the cat’s life, but for adult cats undesirable behavior patterns may be more difficult to alter, because certain behavior has already become habitual.
