Oh Great......

Prowler just went into heat! I can't believe she is in heat so soon. I don't even think she is old enough yet? All the vets are booked up but I did sweet talk one into getting her in on Wednesday-

Miss Prowler walks to her own drummer...and will most likely spend the rest of her life surprising you!

So soon? There's so much talk about girls going through puberty much earlier nowadays - perhaps cats are, too? You really have to wonder about the water supply, hormones in meat, etc..

Not to hijack this thread, but I have also heard and wondered about the influence of soy products re the increase in early puberty.

Me..if I could afford it? organic all the way

Hehehehe, my Freija went into heat at 3 1/2 months! My sympathies:-).

I hate to cite a TV show as a source but I remember they did an episode about the effects of girls going through puberty so early on the show Nip/Tuck.

I can't believe little Prowler's in heat already! How old is she? She's such a cutie for a troublemaker, I hope this isn't making her that much more difficult for you!

Well we got her Dec 15 and she was evaluated by the vet to be 10 weeks old-

I guess I didn't realize so much time had passed-

I feel the same with Persil - but she seems over the first cycle now and is going in on Tuesday. They do grow up so fast!

I don't buy exclusively organic food, but I try to give it to Jamie as much as possible, and have to avoid soy anyway, since he's allergic. One negative thing I've found is that some organic producers, like Yarrah, also make vegetarian cat food. I boycott any producers that sell that.

BTW, we had a cat in heat out on our street all night, yowling away in the snow, so I can really sympathize. The kid next door managed to catch her when he got in around 3:30 a.m., and I took her to the shelter this morning. No collar, no tattoo, and no transponder, naturally. She's not one I recognize, either. It's a no kill shelter, and she'll be neutered this week, whether or not anybody claims her.

I have a neighbor who has three unspayed cats in her apartment. At least one of them is almost always in heat and the constant wailing is pretty sad. You hear it everytime you walk across in front of her door. She must be batty for tolerating all that noise.

Or she wears earplugs! Thankfully Prowler trills- I had to give her a bath this morning because her fur was all oily? LOL Can you tell I am out of my depth here? I can't even recall the last time I dealt with a female in heat!

I stand corrected: A former student stopped by at school today. She's working as a buyer for an organic food store chain, and brought some samples of organic cat food for Jamie, since she knows about his allergies and my paranoia about cats and BSE, and organic tea for all the teachers. Wasn't that nice of her? She told me that Yarrah is still producing vegetarian dog food, which I don't really have a problem with, but no longer offers vegetarian cat food.

Saturday night's wailer was spayed today. Nobody has called or come by looking for her, so a "found" notice will be in Thursday's newspaper. She's really gorgeous - a silver tabby, who looks like the British Shorthairs from the Whiskas commercials - and very docile. The vet figures she's only about a year old.
