Need help

I have 2 kittens about 8-10 mnths old both females we started letting both out and a couple of other cats started coming around. Well now 1 of them has runaway. She has been gone for about 2 days now could she be in heat? I have had that happen to me a long time ago and she had left for a few days and came back pregnant

Yes, if you haven't gotten them spayed, your cat (cats) could be, and probably are, in heat. They usually reach maturity after 5 or 6 months. That's why it's a good idea to get it done before then.
I hope she's okay and comes home soon.
And, it's not to late to get them into the vet to get spayed. The second she comes home!

You are probably right about the kittens being in heat. I do hope your kitty comes back.

Please keep your girls indoors, at the very least until they are spayed. If you end up with a pregnant mom and decide to let her have the kittens, please note that soon after delivery the females can get pregnant again.

She probably is in heat. I agree with the other members. It is our responsibility as good pet owners to make sure our pets are spayed or neutered. I hope she comes home soon, and in good condition.

Welcome!

I am sorry to hear about your kitties, I know how stressful that must be.
I keep Tiger indoors since I am such a worry wart.
I will have them both spayed when they come back and perhaps add more security in your yard so they can hang out outside but not leave.
Let us know how it goes!! and Good Luck!!
