My quite cat is making really wierd noises all the time!

Hello everyone !
Vicky is a 1.5 year old cat , its the most quite fulffy cat in the world that never meows (maybe once a week) !!!
But suddenly since yesterday , she has been making really wierd noises the whole time , noises like grrrr with different pitches and tones without opening her mouth ( like its coming from the stomach ) .
She keeps walking around the house and making these sounds, and im getting really worried !!
She eats fine , she goes to the litter box fine , everything is ok .... its just the wierd sounds !!!
What could it be ? Pain ? Heat signs ?

P.S: She hasnt been spayed yet !

The sounds you describe I call "chirping". All three of my cats do it, and they all do it different. (So I can tell who's chirping from the next room ) Anyway, the reason your cat suddently became more vocal is probably that she's in heat. My Mellie was spayed before I got her, so I haven't experience that myself. Perhaps someone else here will post about that. They do become more vocal, but if there's a particular vocalization that's made while in heat, I don't know. What I read is descriptions more of a yowling-like sound. Anyway, I don't think I'd worry about it. (Unless you've got unneutered boy cats around ) Maybe she just decided she's got some things to get off her chest!

Now that I think of it, I don't believe the chirp would be a heat vocalization. It just seems to be a kind of exclamation: hey! what? look! oh, no! etc. Mellie didn't chirp at all the first two months I had her. Then she started getting more vocal for no apparent reason.

Now that i have observed Vicky all day , i realised the "chirping" is becoz she is in heat !!
Coz i saw her today flip on the floor a few times, i also called my doctor and he told me the same thing !
Thank god my other cat is a female , but she has been beating up the little cat since this has started (Maybe because she has been neutred and she is jealous )!
Its been getting really annoying though , and i cant stand it coz i feel sorry for the poor kitty, but hey atleast we can celebrate she is a grown up cat now

Cheers, and thanx for your reply !

the only chirping noise lilly makes is when she's sitting in the window staring at the birds in the feeder. she's like entranced....

spay your cat

From everything I have read about spaying female cats, it seems you should do it regardless of whether she goes outside or is around unneutered cats. The reason being is that it is very uncomfortable for the cat. Also, cats come back into heat about every three weeks until they are bred.

and it's always better to be safe than sorry in case she gets out of the house somehow!
