Many veterinarians recommend spaying female cats between 6 and 12 weeks of age. But some kittens can be spayed as early as 4 weeks old, while others will need more time to grow and develop sexually before they are ready for this surgery.
What is the difference between a male cat and a male dog?
Male dogs usually look like large females; however, many have very small testicles in their scrotums or no testicles at all. Male dogs also produce sperm when they are neutered so it’s not completely accurate to call them “male” if they don’t have an intact penis (like most female dogs). It’s best to refer to them by their breed name instead of using the word “male.” For example, an Irish Setter would be referred to as being female rather than having what is called being in-heat since she produces viable offspring without mating with another dog.
