Why do you think so? Is there certain age when it is necessary to do sterilization? To be honest didn't hear about it.

No, I mean may be it is necessary to serialize till certain age, because after this age it is not good for cat's health

A cat of any age can be sterilized. Not harmful to their health. Consult your veterinarian.

Yes, I already consulted and she said the same, but anyway I wanted to know the opinion of cat holders. Thank you

Breeders who retire their queens at age 2 or higher always have them spayed! Thus, it is NEVER too late to have it done and the sooner the better. It is really better for your kitty to have it done and over with.

Mine was done at age 5 - he was a stud cat until then. He's suffered no adverse effects. But really, the sooner the better.

Sterilise yourself and see how it feels, do early and they don't miss a thing. As an adult its painful and long recovery time.

The recovery time is not LONG. And you cannot compare it to human recovery. These cats bounce back pretty quickly.

Here is an article from my vet:

Spay and Neuter Surgery From Our Antioch TN Vet

At PedMed, our Antioch TN vet offers a wide range of veterinary services to optimize your pet's health and wellness, including surgical procedures performed by our very own Dr. Mark Girone. One of the more common procedures we perform in our office is that of spay and neuter surgery, which prevents pets from reproducing and has a number of benefits for their overall health and temperament.spay and neuter surgery from our veterinarian in Antioch

Safe Age Ranges for Cat and Dog Spay/Neuter Surgery

When it comes to having a cat or dog spayed/neutered, a frequent question we're asked is "how old is too old to have this procedure done?" Ideally, all pets would have this surgery done at a young age (preferably around six months or sooner) so that there is no risk of unwanted litters or adverse health effects later in life. However, there are many reasons as to why a pet may not be spayed or neutered earlier in life, such as having been a stray or feral.

Specific age ranges for safe spay and neuter can vary based on the type of pet and individual factors, which is why we always recommend a consultation with our vet for pet owners who are wanting to have an older pet spayed or neutered. In most cases, senior dogs and cats between seven and eight years of age can be safely spayed or neutered. However, it is important that diagnostic testing is done to ensure that your pet is healthy enough to have the surgery, as some medical conditions (such as kidney disease or high blood glucose levels) could make the surgery too dangerous, especially when it comes to anesthesia. Furthermore, older pets who already have been diagnosed with reproductive health problems (such as ovarian cancer) may not be recommended for a spay or neuter.
