Hi, Good you want to get her sterilised!

First, has she been vaccinated against cat flu? In many surgeries there are lots of bacteria so it happens that the cat picks up a infections during surgery.

Secondly, the reason why they may not do surgery is because at the moment there is a shortage of Ketamine in India.

Ketamine is the drugs required to sedate the cat. Ketamine is also used for cattle and dog but for dogs we can also use different drugs (although not ideal either).

As cattle tends to have priority over cats (which are sadly neglected in many countries), most surgeries do no longer do cats.

The reason for the shortage of Ketamine is apparently that since last December the government has put a restriction on it. We have been trying to source it but have not been successful.

Apart from Ketamine being used to sedate animals, it is also a party drug. So if you happen to have any connections in that world you may be able to score a vial. The stuff is not expensive, official price about INR150. No idea how much it is on the informal circuit but I do know that some vets occasionally manage to get some of it that way. One 10ml vial can do between 6 to 10 cats.

Apparently the government is now giving out licenses to suppliers again so the rumour is that it will become available again before the end of the year (here in Goa they promise October). Whether true remains to be seen.

So what I would recommend in your case is to first deworm your cat, two days later get is vaccinated. About three weeks after the vaccination she can be operated and perhaps by that time a solution for the K. may be in sight.

Alternatively, you may want to enquiry whether there is a temporary solution such as oral contraception or contraception by injection (some government hospitals provide this). Not ideal but at 8 months she could fall pregnant unless you keep her strictly inside.

Once I hear the Ketamine is available again I will let you know.
The time will come when men will look upon the murder of animals as they look upon the murder of men.
