Cats in heat

Sunday, July 25, 2010
posted by Jim Murphy

cats-in-heatAll females cats that were not spayed will come in heat at various stages of their lives. It is possible that a cat could come into heat as early as 4 months. Usually cats come in heat in the spring and summer months when the days are longer.  Cats stay in heat from four to six days.  They will come in heat every two to three weeks during this time. The cat will then come out of heat. You may ask when does this all end? It usually ends when the season ends or the cat mates.

Signs that a cat is in heat is rubbing her rear , head and neck on all objects. She will become overly affectionate.  You will then hear a kind of “howl”  which is the sound they make when trying to get the attention of her male callers.

If your cat is an outdoor cat and is in heat, I wouldn’t recommend feeding her outside or leaving her cat treats around outdoors or you may have lots of males coming for dinner!
