Q. I'm looking to get my cat spayed. I'm not sure how old she is but the previous owner said she's had 2 litters of kittens already.

A. It doesn't matter if she has already had kittens. The vet will give her a health check before she has an anaesthetic. It is better to get her spayed than have another litter of kittens.
