£10 snip and chip offer is back!

The once cute kitten bought from a social media site for a few quid now sprays urine around the home, is no longer wanted and left behind. Yes, this actually happens and all animal charities are on the cusp of reaching their busiest time of year, making our job so much harder trying to manage the influx of unwanted cats and kittens.

For just £10 Cats Protection is offering “Snip & Chip” starting on Monday, April 30. We have teamed up with selected local vets across the city to help anyone owning a male or female cat. The only criteria is that you must live in the PE1 to PE8 area. The average cost of this combined service is usually around the £70 mark so you won’t want to pass this offer by! This simple procedure has numerous benefits to both your cat’s health and behaviour.

Neutered males are less likely to roam (reducing the risk of being run over), less likely to fight, thus improving their chances of avoiding serious diseases, like feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and feline leukaemia virus (FeLV) which are transmitted by cat bites and sexual activity and will also be less likely to mark their territory with urine (spraying). Spayed female cats can avoid unwanted pregnancies, (it is not beneficial for a female cat to have a litter before spaying, this is a myth) they won’t call and wail during their sexual cycle (in heat) and will be less likely to contract diseases spread by bites and sexual activity.

Adding microchipping into the offer ensures your cat a safe and permanent method of identification and increases the chances of a lost feline being safely reunited with his owner.

Feral Colonies

We are seeing a rise in the number of stray and abandoned cats which can lead to the rise of feral colonies. As a result of un-neutered females having kittens which are not given the chance to be handled or wanted by humans. If you are concerned this is or may become a problem in your area, then please call us on 0345 371 2750 for advice.
