Free online guide to unexpected
Do you, or someone you know, have a cat that is unexpectedly pregnant?
It’s a surprising fact that a huge 78% of cat pregnancies are unplanned by the owner, and this can come as quite a shock. Often the cause is the fact that owners are unaware that their cat can get pregnant from as young as four months old – before many owners have considered neutering.
To help owners that suddenly find themselves in a situation where their cat is pregnant, our colleagues at Agria Pet Insurance, supported by Your Cat magazine, have created an online guide covering what to expect and what to do.
From identifying when a cat is in heat to what to do during kittening and when to neuter afterwards, the guide offers clear, accessible, step-by-step advice to cover the entire period.
As well as highlighting health problems to look out for, the guide also advises on how to find good homes for the litter – which is one of the most important things owners can do, considering current figures show that between 130,000 and 150,000 of cats of all ages find themselves in rehoming centres.
