    It depends on the vet, ours won't do them earlier than 5 months.

    Ours will do them around 14 weeks (providing they are big enough).

    It depends on your vet and then it is done by weight rather then age. The kittens have to be at least 2kg in weight

    our vet has advised that we have our little girl done at 5 and half months and our boy at 7 months, although they did say if Sid was getting a little <ahem> boisterous that they could do Nancy at 5 months.

    I got my cat spayed at 6months, I think you can do it earlier but 6months seems the normal age:)
