I heard something vague about bring able to get vouchers for half the cost of neutering a cat from pdsa, anyone know if this is true? I have a six month old male and he sprayed the other day in my house so need to get him done. Have no idea how much it costs or if I can get discount because I am on benefits. Anyone know? Thanks!

Different charities run different campaigns at different times. If you have a local RSPCA or PDSA hospital they maybe able to help you or approaching local Cats protection league, PDSA or RSPCA branches. Usually they are dependent on being in receipt of certain benefits though which ones varies through time and with each charity.

That's true Korma. When deciding to have a cat factors like neutering, worming, microchipping and neutering should be considered.

Where did you get the cat from Stop?

I got him from gumtree. And yes I'm not an idiot I know its up to me to provide these things for my cat, but I have no idea how much it is. I hope to fund it myself but its its well over a hundred quid I won't be able to pay the whole lot.

It was just an innocent question to see if it was possible to get a discount..

I found this Stop if it's any help. Can't find neutering costs but I think it's less than £100.

Might be worth just asking your local vet. We use Companion Care inside Pets at Home and they have all their charges on the wall.

But bear in mind if you can't find 100 quid that you will struggle with vets bills and should consider insurance.

Thanks. I have insurance in case he gets ill or in an accident but it doesn't cover neutering costs.

I'm in the Midlands, mine cost £50ish and was microchipped at the same time for £5 so £45 for the castration.

It's best to get them chipped.

I often read more from in-depth blogs sharing experiences about cats. I know one of us needs knowledge.

It should cost £50 to £60 privately. There are vouchers for anyone who lives within the M25 called C4 vouchers, which you can get from the big charities I think to use anywhere (sorry I'm hazy but I'm sure Google will help). I'm sure there are other schemes for people outside the area but I don't know the details.
