We have a brother and sister who are currrently 5 months old and intact. I'm getting desperate. DP lost his job and we can't afford the £130 it will cost to get them both done aat the local vets. Blue cross website only mentions London (we don't live there), RSPCA only help with this for rescue centres and charities and the PDSA don't operate here either. Help, we've not got much time left! TIA

cat's protection

Free or cheap neutering in certain areas, but it also says they help with costs wherever you are. There's a helpline number on that link.

Keep them apart if you can, they will mate and sometimes it happens before the female is obviously in heat.

You could have a litter before you can say "oh my God that's your sister".

One of my colleagues thought her cat was a boy Hmm until it got pg.

Cats' Protection.

Or phone your local vet and explain the situation. They may let you pay over time.

Yes, vets will know the charities that will pay for spaying, and will be happy to tell you about them - their money is as good as yours, as far as the vet is concerned!

Get the female done as matter of urgency. Harsh but true. Then the boy ASAP.

Have looked at Cats protection but they don't have a branch that covers our postcode either. Thanks for the suggestions, will have to call local vet and see what they can come up with, we are running out of time. Thanks everyone.

I agree, do the girl first. The Blue Cross may be able to help too.
