Spca advised me that I should wait until my kitten and puppy were at least 4 months old before spaying or neutering.

Most vets wait until the kitten is 6 months old.

No, it's not too soon. The ASPCA and various animal shelters routinely neuter male kittens at three months.

the sooner the better! If you do it soon enough he may never spray! I had a male cat once when I was little and he sprayed my brothers and my halloween candy bowl. yuck! so do it NOW!!

Most shelters will routinely spay/neuter kittens at 10-12 weeks of age, so no, it's not too soon. However, the majority of vets I know prefer to wait until the kitten is 5-6 months of age, as their bodies are more mature and better able to tolerate an anaesthetic than at 3 months of age (they can clear the drugs from their system more easily and can maintain their body temperature more effectively).
