Right our vet does 2 lb 2 mo for boys also and later for girls. We never have problems with the early neuter but like someone said *not all vets do it* - not all are experienced at doing it. So probably good to get one who's done it before and you trust. Gloria Sent from my iPhone On Dec 27

Since all your other cats are negative, I would not hesitate to start a process of integrating into the household. I assume you're asking since you once had an FELV positive at one time, but as I understand that virus is very fragile and doesn't survive long outside the body. Gloria
