Cats Protection Inverness Branch


There are thousands of unwanted cats in the UK, please don’t add to that number! Be a responsible owner and have your cat neutered (both males and females) between four and six months of age.

Some of the benefits of neutering: 

Neutered male cats;
Will become less likely to roam (reducing the risk of being run over).  Will become 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 reproductive activity. Will 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. Cats only become maternal AFTER the birth of the kittens.  Will be less likely to contract diseases spread by bites and reproductive activity.  Won't call and wail during their sexual cycle.  Cats recover very quickly from neutering operations but we’d recommend following your vet’s advice on how to look after your cat after the operation.


(updated apr2018)
We operate a voucher system and offer: £40.00 towards the cost of a spaying a female cat £25.00 towards the cost of a neutering a male cat - You will pay the balance of the bill direct to the vet. If you receive State Benefits or are on a low income. In these cases, free neutering may be available.
Our neutering vouchers have a short expiry date, so please don't request one until your cat or kitten is at least four months old.
We prefer to receive your initial request via email but you can also leave a message on 07815 910861 but please be aware the telephone is not manned 24/7 (as most of the volunteers work fulltime) – also please do not text to this number as you will not receive a reply.

Please supply the following information that will allow us to issue you with a neutering voucher.

If we are able to offer you a voucher we will ask you to make an appointment for the procedure with a vet practice to be carried out and to advise us of that date. We will require at least four working days prior to the procedure date to allow us to issue the voucher to the vet practice. 
Please do not assume that we will automatically issue the voucher if you have already booked your cat in and come to us an afterthought.  The website & FB pages are not monitored 24/7.
