Is there such thing as a false heat cycle?
The last couple nights Zinny has been howling to get outside during the night, and claws at the window. Just now I petted her, and head/shoulder area is fine, but if I get anywhere past the first part of her back, she lifts her butt towards me and starts purring like mad!
I had her spayed last year!
I would just let her outside, since I'm afraid my dad will get mad at all the ruckus of her howling (and it annoyingly keeps waking ME up at night, too), but the raccoons have been on a rampage with attacking cats this year, so I'm afraid to let her out during dark hours. Once she's in at night, I shut the bedroom door, since the raccoons actually got into the house last week! (there's a hole in the screen door that the cats use, but the raccoons finally figured out to use it, too...and I don't have the money to repair it right now)
