Feline Fix by Five Month 2025 – February 2025

Feline Fix by Five Month is observed during February every year. The month-long awareness event was established by Feline Fix by Five Months, a program run by Marian’s Dream. The objective of Feline Fix by Five Month is to raise awareness about the benefits of spaying/neutering cats early. As per the recommendation of the assembled task force, “Given the known benefits of sterilization and the lack of evidence for harm related to age at which the procedure is performed, the Veterinary Task Force on Feline Sterilization calls for veterinary practitioners and professional associations to recommend sterilization of cats by five months of age.”

History of Feline Fix by Five Month

Cats have been companions to humans for several millennia. It is believed that they might have been domesticated over 10,000 years ago in the Fertile Crescent in Mesopotamia. Cats became useful when humans settled down — they could hunt mice that threatened the storage of grains. This arrangement benefitted both humans and cats — the humans got pest control, and the cats got access to abundant prey.Cats have been a significant part of many cultures throughout history. The Ancient Egyptians, for example, revered cats. Bastet, an Egyptian deity, was depicted with the head of a cat. The Ancient Romans shared this reverence to a certain degree, cats were seen to be symbolic of liberty. On the other hand, cats were vilified in many parts of Europe during the Medieval Era. They were believed to be companions of witches and, thus, the devil. Cats were often killed to ward off evil. It was only in the 17th century that cats began being viewed favorably in Europe.Today, cats are well-loved across the world — they are inseparable from the current cultural zeitgeist. Cats are the protagonists of cartoon shows, comic strips, movies, books, and the like. Several cats have even obtained celebritydom through social media platforms like Instagram. Unfortunately, certain superstitions about cats prevail — black cats, as an example, are still linked with bad luck and are often abandoned or killed because of this belief.
