Hello!

Thank you for your question, I'm Dr. Dan and I'll try to help you.

In order for cats to be mature enough to handle the stress of anesthesia we prefer that they be at least 3 months old before spaying. If you want to try to avoid behavioral urine marking or very early sexual activity then having them spayed before 6 months of age is best but they are never too old to be spayed.

I hope this helps, if not please feel free to ask more questions.
