Noisy Birman Kitten

About 6 weeks ago I bought a 6 month old female Birman Kitten. She has got a full pedigree and according to the breeder has been checked out by the vet and had all her jabs, as yet though she hasn't been spayed.

Anyway we got our little kitten home and she took afew days to get used to us and her new surroundings. Everything was fine, she was very affectionate and loving, then one night about 2 weeks ago she started to emmit these God awful cries during the night. At first we thought that there was something wrong with her and she was howling in pain, but as soon as we picked her up she stopped the howling and started to purr. After a couple of nights of this, with very liitle sleep we decided to shut her in the living room to try and get some peace and to try and teach her that the howling wouldn't neccesarily get her any attention.

After a few days this seemed to work and she was quiet in the nights and we thought we'd cracked it, but unfortunatley she has started making the noises again only worse now. Has anyone had similar experiences and can offer some advice to our dilema? Cheers for anything in advance.

Just the phrase "godawful cries" suggests to me that she might be in heat. Getting her spayed will likely end that crying, as well as keeping her from having too many empty heats, which can be extremely dangerous.

My cat Mi'Mi was recently in heat last week....sometimes it almost sounded like she was crying maaaamaaaaamaaaaaa....
I am calling Monday morning to have her spayed now that her heat cycle seems to be completed.

She really should be spayed. Six months is plenty old enough and from what you're describing she's most likely in heat. Like they both told you

Anyway, bring her on in for a vet visit (just to make sure all is well) and schedule that surgery!
