I would say average, 7 days. Sometimes 10 days.
The next step after meowing is trying to escape. They often succeed. Their minds are on only one thing. Cats are very determined and crafty creatures. It would be advisable to put 2 doors between her and the outside for now.

His behavior dramatically CHANGED. He attacks me a lot, meows frequently, and always seems to want attention recently.
He will follow me around the entire house. when i'm sitting down at my computer, he will sit near me and stare up at me. when i reach to pet him, he BITES MY HAND!!!! I can't walk around the house without Zion pouncing on my legs or biting my ankles. It's horrible!
I'm taking him to the vet next week to see what is wrong. Maybe he's sick and I just don't realize it...
OR maybe he's just in HEAT??????????????????
A trip to the vet is a good idea with a change in behavior. I do think your cat is just "maturing" and may be a little bored too. Males don't go into "heat". They do have urges, but they don't come in cycles. They're there all the time. Neutering will stop the urges, though.
