If your girl cat is not spayed,....

Do they go in heat / get their "period" like girl dogs do?

  • If she hasn't been "fixed", she will go in heat, which can be VERY annoying with all the mewling and cooing and meowing.

  • they do go in heat and act crazy and will usually do anything to get out so if you can get her fixed ASAP. you dont need to keep a diaper on them though cats will generally keep themselves clean.

  • When a cat goes into heat they will pretty much stay in heat (they will go into heat about every 2 to 3 weeks) until they get pregnant so no it is not exactly like when a dog goes into heat.

  • Thanks ladies.. my girlfriend asked this question and I've had 5 cats ( on my 6th now ) and I guess its never been an issue as I always spay / neuter them at 6months so I didn't know..
