When should you spay a cat?

So, as some of you might know, we recently found a stray kitten. She is doing amazing now, and growing like crazy. I’m just wondering when to spay her. When we found her, we were guessing she was around 3-4 wks, and we’ve had her almost 3 wks now, so she is probably close 7wks.

She is obviously nowhere near spaying right now, but I am curious when I should plan to get it done. About how old does a kitten need to be to get spayed?

spay her before she comes into heat, if there is a male cat nearby neutered or not she will come into heat earlier, I have my cats done before or at five months if a female is not spayed she will come into heat every two to three weeks and that is not something I want to deal with

Okay, thanks. I will plan to do it at 4-5 months.
