In heat already??

My little female came to us..we though her to ne just 10 weeks old right now. When she went to the vets for her second shots, he now thinks she is 3 months old. Today she went into heat!!!!!
We just adopted a little boy...he is now 8 weeks old.
When should she be spayed? I had hopd to bring both babies in the
same time..but I dont know if that will be safe.
Could she get pregnant by the other cat sooner then later?

Why do you think she is in heat? It's very unlikely that a 3 month old kitten would come into heat.
What symptoms is she displaying?

Your new boy shouldn't show ANY interest in mating until he is at least 6 months old.

Shouldn't...maybe. But that's just subjective, as some cats show interest and can actually mate before then. You can't really bank on the 6 months thing.

She is displaying the typical traits... butt in the air, making "moaning
noise" moving her back feet etc....

Shouldn't, yes...but my Jet's father was only 4.5 months old when he got Jet's mother pregnant....

I'm not surprised by much anymore. I know of females going into heat at 4 months of age so at 3 months shouldn't be impossible.

The male shouldn't show any interest in here yet. Most males don't start to show interest in females before 6 months of age. I'm not really a fan of early spay, but if she's in heat now it just might be suitable to have her spayed as soon as possible.
