Yikes!! Kitten in heat!

Yesterday, Pepper went into heat. She's only about 5 mos. old so I wasn't expecting this quite yet. She keeps howling, rolling on the floor and rubbing herself on everything -- objects and people.

Is this about the right age for this to happen? How long will it last? She is scheduled to be spayed in about a month.

I haven't had a female cat since childhood and had forgotten how annoying this can be, though of course she can't help it. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!!!!

A season can last anything from 1 week to a month, some cats even stay in season! Cats usually have their first season around 6 months old, so its a little early but not too unusual. She will try anything to get out of the house to find a mate, so be extra vigilant with doors and windows!

Thanks for the info.

Unfortunately, Pepper and Snickers (my four year old male) have "discovered" each other. Snickers is neutered but apparently still capable of lust! They have been at each other all day. I have separated them a couple of times but I'm sure they've "done it." I suppose this isn't a problem, but it's a bit much for me! Hoping this doesn't last much longer...
