I think my cat is in heat!

I've always spayed my kitties as soon as they were old enough for the procedure. I'm not sure how old my new kitty is, as she was rescued last October. I thought she was 8 weeks old when she came to us (Halloween time) but the original rescuer thinks she may be older.

She howls a lot, but not constantly. If she is in heat, can I have her spayed ASAP?

  • Yes you can have her spayed.I thought they couldnt be fixed until they were six months old, I recently found out that they can actually be spayed at 9 weeks.
    Is she rolling on the floor and trying to back her butt up against everything? If so..yep shes in heat,lol

  • I think you may want to call your vet to see...

  • You can spay during heat, but it will probably cost a little more.
