hi,

i have a kitten and she is about 8 months old, and is on heat, i was just wondering if they are in pain when theyre on heat? coz when we pick her up she makes a funny meow and it sounds like she is pain! also, is there any way to stop her from meowing all night and day? she is an inside cat and we dont want her to have kittens, we will get her fixed (after xmas)

thankyou

She is just very nervous and doesn't know what's wrong. This will happen in two weeks if she doesn't breed. You're right to get her spayed. She really needs a lot of comfort right now, because she is so nervous.

When cats howl and moan when they are in heat, they are basically calling upon a mate :lol: The only thing you can do for her, is just let her be...oh, and don't let her outside! I am sure if you have cats in your neighbourhood, you'll notice they are hanging around :wink: outside your house. It's because they know she's in "heat". Once you get her fixed she won't do this. They are not in pain at all...quite the opposite actually :oops:

if he it was a male, they had sex. :?

You can still humanely spay a pregnant cat if it's in the first stages of pregnancy.

There's a REMOTE possibility that she rejected him. If she keeps crying or starts again in two weeks, she MIGHT not have been quite ready. Sometimes the female encourages the male for days, but smacks him and growls if her attempts to mate. Then she finally accepts him. Use your judgment about the spaying now. That's an individual decision.

She's still meowing and acting the same as she was before, does that mean she didn't have sex with the other cat or do they do that sort of thing anyway?

Also like i wrote in my other post, she hasn't bled yet so does that mean she can't get pregnant?

No, I have never seen blood when my queen was in heat. Dogs sometimes drip a bit, but not excessively. When I was raising collies, I find only a spot here and there. I used to have them lie down so that I could check them, so I'd know the exact day they came in season. (The breeding has to be on certain days to produce pups.)

She definitely CAN! You have to isolate her totally-in a room where no animal can get in. Ask the vet her opinion on spaying now. It is a bit harder, but if that tom has found her, he'll keep trying. If she has ovulated, it is a matter of choice. (A cat ovulates after the tom has mated with her, not before. So the eggs and sperm could be joining or joined now. If so, she'll go out of season.)

i dont think that they actually did it though, there are no marks or scratches on her, arent cats usually rough?

Her nipples will get larger, and she will get fatter, just as human beings do. But that takes weeks, and if she's pregnant, you'd be aborting kittens that are more developed. Please speak to your vet.

Just curious, how did a male feral get into your house without you knowing?

Pay very close attention when you enter and exit the house.
