When to alter a kitten?
We are now calling places to try and find someplace affordable to spay/neuter a litter of kittens. They are now 13 weeks old. Some places have no problem with the age as long as they are at least 3# with testicles distended. Two places were very adamant about not doing it until females are at least 5 mos. and males, 8 mos.
I sure don't want to endanger them by doing it too early but also don't want to take any chances since these kitties are outdoors most of the time. Why do some places want to wait?
