At what age should a female cat be spayed?

There are many benefits to spaying, such as avoiding certain types of reproductive cancers in female cats. The best time to have this procedure done is when the female cat is six months old. This is because they most likely haven’t gone into heat yet and having them spayed at this point reduces their cancer risk by 91 percent. Having a female cat spayed at 1 or 2 years old reduces the cancer risk by 11 percent.
