Need Some Help, Please

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey there everyone! New member here. I have a question about cat breeding. I have to cats currently, one a female, that is a little older than a year, i think 1 year and 1 month old. The other is a male, he's 9 months old. Well the female is in her heat for the second time, and today i almost caught them "mating". My question is, how can i prevent them from doing that while im here and got an eye on them? We dont have money to get either operated right now. I was thinking of putting water in a little spray bottle and spraying the female when she gets too "intense" but i have a feeling that wont be good. Can someone enlighten me?

Thank you in advance!

You need to separate your "kids" from each other at all time till you can get the lady fixed..

The ONLY solution to this is to keep them in separate rooms, at all times, no exceptions. I learned the hard way to never trust a tomcat!

Ziggy got Sneakers pregnant. (See my sig below.)

You need to keep then in 2 separate rooms if he's trying to mate with her. And I'd get him done first because he could start spraying in the house. Keep in mind that after he's been neutered he's still capable of getting her pregnant for about 30 days after neutering, so you still have to keep them completely separated with no chance of mating.

I agree they need to be separated asap before she gets pregnant. Spraying her wouldn't be fair since she isn't really doing anything wrong. Don't let them be toghther at all. Also he will start spraying when she comes into heat and such to leave scent marks.

I'd keep him far from her until he gets fixed, make sure they still get attention and such. good luck.

If you caught them mating you will likely have a litter on the way. Please be sure the female gets a premium food that she can eat at all times of the day.

They must be separated, until you can afford to have them fixed. And really, they both must be altered in the near future...check into some of the low-cost spay/neuter programs. There are too many reasons to fix your pets, too many unwanted cats and kittens due to overpopulation, and too many problems with NOT fixing your pets. Until then, please keep them separated.

She might not take the first time you could take her to the vet in about a week or 2 or look for any signs that she's pregnant.

DO NOT LET YOUR CATS INTERACT EVER AT ALL until the female is done. Do her first because if you do the male first then you still need to seperate them for about a month because the male will still have active sperm.

We can help you find a low cost clinic. The one here by me neuters for $15 and spays for $20. I am sure you could afford that, you are probably thinking of normal vets which charge anywhere from $100-200 or more!

Guys, he lives in Montreal, anyone live near there that knows a of low cost vet?
