Male cats in heat

post #1 of 13

How do they behave?

I know how females do because we always had them growing up. But male kitties I have no clue other than they spray.

the best thing to do anyway is to get him neutered.

I planned to. He is already on the wait list. I was just wondering what the signs were.

Male cats don't actually "go into heat" because that would imply that they would only act a certain way for a period of time. Once a male cat becomes sexually mature (give or take six months old) they will start to spray to mark their territory, the will wander through the house (usually at night) yowling (calling to the female cats), and can become aggressive toward people and other animals (especially if they were to smell another cat on you). Their urine will also start to smell very strong and musky. I don't know if you allow your cat to go outside, but if he were to come into contact with a female in heat that could make him become sexually mature at an earlier age. Hope this helped

Thank you Devlyn. I almost thought we wouldn't be able to get him but then I found out most Koreans don't like cats so noone would adopt him if we didn't. You have pretty kitties too.

This information was very helpful. I have a kitten between five and six months old and trying to find a vet to have him fixed. I am glad I found this site, Have a great and wonderful day. :)

My cat is about a year since Jan. He has not been neutered yet and this is the first time he was doing this but he is meowing like CRAAZY, and kinda nibbling me almost trying to cradle my arm as if a dog would to hump. he is only doing it to me sitting on my lap, following me, and being most vocal while I am speaking.. Can anyone explain this?

As per the thread I think you started, it's high time to get him neutered.

JamieF, this is the time of year, in the Northern hemisphere, when females are most likely to come into heat, and he can probably smell one outside somewhere. He is a mass of raging hormones, poor boy and is trying to take it out on you as you are the nearest female, even if you are human! he does need to be neutered for his own happiness.

OMG my little guy is hollering like crazy too! He's sprayed once. He has his appointment next week. I wish I could get him in sooner! He's making me crazy.  I didn't think he was six months old yet, as I got him as a stray. He's rather small.  We have another neutered male in the house and spayed female.  Thanks for the info!
