A question

post #1 of 16

I was wondering, since i am still new at the female cat thing.. When do female cats usually get their 'Periods'? and what are the most common symptoms of cat pregnancy?
post #2 of 16
Well cats do not get "Periods" they go into heat. They do not bleed either.

This can begin anywhere from 4 months until 6 or 7 months but they can actually become pregnant before you even notice they are in heat. They can be pregnant at 4 -5 months, which would almost be like an 11 year old girl having a baby! They may be capable but definately not mature until around 1 year old.

Pregnancy would be noticed but pinker nipples, larger belly, increased appetite and no more heat cycles. HOWEVER, the female can get pregnant and carry more then one litter at a time. AND she doesn't have to be in heat to get pregnant!

Please have your cat spayed! It is extremely important for many reasons but one is for your cats health. She can get cancer if she is never spayed as well as other horrible diseases. If you need a low cost or free clinic near you, google search in your area.

You can spay your cat as young as 8 weeks old, no need to wait until 6 months as a lot of people think and I would NOT recommend it.

If she is pregnant already, she can be spayed up until usually around 4 or 5 weeks into the pregnancy. So keep that in mind.

When your cat is in heat, she will meow loudly, roll around and try to get outdoors to mate.

Vanier College in Montreal will do low cost spaying if you are interested let me know and i'll give you the details.

I would like to know more about vanier college details, another thing is yes she is rolling around making funny sounds like a rolling sound of her voice (she has soft voice so it sounds odd) and she is kind of at the back door, but the thing is i think my male cat mated with her.. im not sure.. because lately he has been angry with her. biting her neck chasing her.. wierd things really. Im very nervous about this. Im not to sure how old she is because i didnt buy her, i found her in the streets really skiny starving.. so im not sure.. i've had her for i think since october 2005. i felt bad, because it was getting cold.

Im not sure what color her nipples should be because she is very fluffy so you never see her hair, but i checked they are pretty pink and pink around the nipple too. Im not quiet sure.

Thank you, Yeah Male is not neutered, im going to get it done for both of them, so they feel miserable together, then feel all happy after it's all done. They're bestfriends so yeah, want them to have everything done together. are these professional people doing these things or just learning because that kind of scares me lol.

Don't worry, Dr Glew does the surgeries. Her regular practice is in Hudson and she comes to the college twice a month to do spay/neuter clinics.

Everytime i touch my cats hind legs she starts making this funny noise and looks as if she is spreading and stamping her legs and pushes her back down. it's wierd. my mom is a bit worried and i think my male is mad because she might be carrying another cats babies... im not sure.

your cat is in heat. he is doing that because he is TRYING to mate with her. Keep them separate until you can get them both fixed. Lock either him or her up in a bathroom or bedroom. She should do that for about 3-7 days then will stop. That is how they call a male and she arches her back and crouches down getting ready to breed.

Just be sure NOT to let the 2 of them together until after they are fixed.

This is what the female does before the male mounts her to mate... She knows you are a human but she wants to mate thats why she is doing this... SHE IS IN HEAT. You will need to get her fixed if you dont want babies runing around. You may also want to get her looked at by a vet to see if she does already have babies growing....

I'm not sure if someone has mentioned it already, but its important to know that the female can get pregnant even if she is not in heat.

I am getting my female fixed at the same time.. my male cat doesn't usually leave the stairs in my back yard, so i am not worried.

Another thing.. What kind of vaccinations do cats need.. that are extremly important?
