We recommend that you have your kitten spayed or neutered around the age of 6 months.  Both males and females may start to mark (spray) their territory as early as that.  (Yes, female cats can spray as well).  Some people think that their kitten is not using the litter box, or has quit using the litter box when they find a wet spot somewhere else, when indeed the kitten is using the litter box, but it may also be spraying, or marking it’s territory in another corner of the house.  Unless you intend to raise kittens, there is absolutely no reason not to spay or neuter your cats, especially if you don’t want them to spray/mark their territory in your home.

Before adding a kitten to your family, be sure that no family member is allergic to cats.  These cats become loved members of the family so quickly it is emotionally very hard to un-love them and let them be re-homed, even when a member of the family is suffering from allergies.
