What are the signs

of a cat going into heat? This is my first cat I have ever had. She is 7 months old. She is making really crazy sounds its not a meow or a purr. It sounds like a mating call lol. And she does it ALOT! It's kinda freaking me out lol.

  • I just read that cats can be spayed as early as 8 weeks, but my vet said 6 months. I would go talk to a vet about it and have it done asap! Here is a great website for spaying info:

    As far as the declawing, I personally wouldn't do it to my cats (I have 2) because it is unnecessary, and if they do happen to get outside, they can not defend themselves against other animals. Here's a link with information that I tend to agree with as far as declawing a cat and a small statement from the article:

    Remember, declawing is radical surgery that involves amputating the first joint of a cat's toes. It's permanent, expensive, and irreversible, and may have unwanted affect on your cat's behavior. Please consider other alternatives such as SOFTPAWS nail caps before committing your cat to surgery.

  • Some people think it is, it's something you should research and decide on your own.
