Dear Nigel,

I was a stray cat but a nice lady has just taken me in. Reg­u­lar meals – yum! The only draw­back is the vet says I need surgery to find out if I’ve been spayed. What?! Surely it’s pos­si­ble to tell with­out an op? Nikita, Cardiff

Dear Nikita,

Some cats have scars as re­minders of surg­eries – oth­ers heal so there’s no way to tell. While it sounds dras­tic, an op to check you’ve been spayed – and for the pro­ce­dure if you haven’t – is much less has­sle than kit­tens. You de­serve the quiet life! Love Nigel xxx
