She is yowling and putting her butt in the air...and rubbing on everything. It is uncharacteristic of her.
Yes kittens as young as 4-5 months old can breed and can have kittens. So please get her to a vet for spaying ASAP and keep her inside so she doesn't get pregnant. Is she around any unneutered males - even a 4-5 month old MALE kitten can get her pregnant!
No no worries, she is a fully indoor cat and only shares a home with a puppy My sister is making her an appointment this week to get her spayed..
It was funny, my sister is like "how do I make it stop??"..I'm like "get her spayed" She was going to get her spayed anyway, but we figured 6 months, not 4!
Its all the stuff they put into our foods that cause girls and kitties to go into heat earlier! My 5 y/o daughter started bleeding one day and I freaked out. The dr said its all the chemical & pesticides, antibiotics and stuff they feed the cows that causes them to have their cycles earlier!! I dont know if there is any way to get meat that doesn't have this stuff done to it, or vegtables for that matter or if this is just going to be the life cycle from now on!!
Yep definitely separate them and keep a close eye. Can you call your vet and explain what is going on? Maybe they can get you in sooner or with someone else. From what all I've read on here; males retain some fertility for a few months after neutering (I'm not sure how long with kittens) so it's definitely important to get both done; but at least the girl, as soon as they can.
If even a tiny bit of tissue remains behind in a spay surgery then a cat - even though they are spayed, will still go through heat cycles. I fostered a female cat who was spayed and then "spayed again" 2 more times because she kept going into heat. Have you vet check for a spay scar (a lot of them are super small now so some places have started to tattoo cats who are altered). If you vet finds one she is spayed so no worries about getting pregnant but you may want to have the vet see if they can find the remaining tissue to make your life easier. However, if is much, much easier for the vet to find the remaining tissue when the cat is "in heat" and the tissue is inflammed.
Yes, she's calling (in heat). The vet will probably want to wait for her to finish before neutering, but make an appointment for the second half of next week and it should all be fine. If the vet refuses to spay at her age ring around until you find one that will, and remember she is likely to become an escapologist while calling.
Also find out how soon he will castrate her brother. He probably can't get her pregnant at the moment but will be very interested in her. One of my neuter boys was quite 'developed' at 4 months.
I have a pedigree breeding girl and she's hilarious when she's calling - she flirts like mad with my two neutered males, including 'assuming the position' under one of them! She is off to the real thing on her next call.
We had a name for girls like that when I was in high school.................Popular. As I imagine your girl will be at next call. We want pictures of the kittens if and when.
