BOROUGH cat owners can get their furry friends neutered for £5 - but be quick, the offer runs out soon.

Stourbridge, Dudley and Wyre Forest Cats Protection is offering to snip or spay felines for the bargain price until the end of April.

The charity believes neutering is an essential part of responsible cat ownership and helps neuter 163,000 cats and kittens each year.

A spokesman for the charity said the procedure reduces the number of unwanted kittens, as left un-neutered, a female cat can have up to 18 kittens each year.

Neutered males are also less likely to roam, display territorial behaviour or fight.
