How Does Spaying Work?
When your female cat is spayed, their fallopian tubes, ovaries and uterus are surgically removed. Female cats are often physically mature enough to mate as early as six months old. Cats go through "heat" cycles every six months, often engaging in nervous and unusual behaviors. Some cats will attack, roll on the floor, or even beg for attention through vocalizing. Spaying removes the cause of these behaviors: hormones related to mating and the natural urge to reproduce.
