I am desperate, the veterinarian told me that they usually wear a couple of times a year but my cat is already the second so far this year. The problem is that he has very loud meows. Can I do something to calm her down, is this normal? The first year he has it Thank you very much
A cat goes out to heat, in theory, 3-4 times a year, but is very influenced by temperature, males and females nearby…. And it depends on the race, they become poliestrics, so that, even if there is no corresponding zeal, they are almost in heat that ends and another that appears in a short time. A meow of "call" to attract males and a consequent stress is what, in many cases, stop eating, try to leave home ... and if they do not, they have a very bad time. Their reproductive function makes them in heat for a long time ... without ruling out processes that induce ovarian and uterine problems. My recomendation. sterilize. A sterilized cat is happy. Otherwise you will be more aware of escaping and pathologies, as I said. By the way, there are hormonal treatments to eliminate heat. I do not use them except in case of an emergency and that surgery is already scheduled for the next few days, thus attenuating the nervous state of the kitten.
The jealousy in the cats will depend on the light we have, it is clear that if it is here in Spain that is rather a country with a good temperature, the cat will leave you in heat every 2 x 3, causing problems such as mastitis, slimming cancel The best thing you can do is to sterilize it, it is quite bad. Unless you are a cat breeder, you will do your cat a favor, because they suffer a lot and have a very bad time. I hope you make the sterilization decision, you will avoid many problems Greetings
The jealousy of cats is very irregular and depends on the cat. There are some that have them every 15 days. The advice, no doubt, is to sterilize.

Good afternoon, A kitten may begin to be jealous of dependencies on her physiognomy and development, for example one of my rescued street gats went into heat the first time at six months. Once a cat enters heat or is sterilized since today there are veterinarians who use techniques that make the kitten not find out anything and when she leaves her trasportín in the afternoon after surgery at noon, it comes out as if nothing would have happened and run again, play and do the things you did before. The sterilization of a cat is not only a matter of discomfort caused by the meowing, here there are also many differences between cat and cat, there are some that do not even know when you get into heat, it is a matter mainly of moral responsibility towards your pet Since if you do not plan to take off pups, why keep it that way when a simple surgery solves the problem? It is also our duty how I love a cat to make him (female or male) living in an apartment or in a house stop "having a bad time", it is also quite a bit to look around: he has never seen how many abandoned kittens are there in the street? The number of jealousy. When it begins with the first, spring or autumn, when it is removed soon after it has another, and another and another until something is done, also risking your life for possible problems to the ovaries for being so jealous with the consequent risk of contracting an ovarian or uterine tumor! Also a mother a month and a half, two months of giving birth, still breastfeeding the puppies of that litter, goes back into heat! That way a cat can have up to 3-4 litters a year if it is not sterilized! And if I think that there are breeders so irresponsible and so clinging to the money without respecting their animals, they have no purpose to be able to squeeze that female as much as possible in the shortest time, so it will not last long and nor be afraid to keep it for many years. I sincerely hope that I have been helpful and that you make the right decision for your cat that she surely wants madly! Greetings.

You can not give an exact answer, at home I have 4 of the same race one gets jealous every month, another every 15 days, the other two have silent zeal and sometimes last months without a zeal, I have the patience because 2 a super weird maulla sleep in my room but it makes me laugh and makes fun of her makes me laugh, another screams worse than a rock singer but it doesn't bother me, I guess you don't want to sterilize your cat, but having whole cats like that is or you have Patience or you retire, the worst of your evils is not that so loudly shout, investigate that it is the Pyometra and you can not walk across your cat to avoid jealousy or the Pyometra, I am aware of it and every one of them Go into heat my room must be as cold as a fridge, your diet is different from the rest. You understand? It is not only to fear an entire cat, there are alternatives such as injections but these cause inferiority, cancer, mastitis, etc. There is a chip that costs I think $ 370 dollars but in females it is not 100% effective and having a hormonal mismatch is counterproductive for your little one. Think about what is best for her and not for you, if you are not properly informed, the only one harmed will be her.
In the case of the feline species, ovulation is induced. And this means? That in most cases, until the male does not ride the female does not ovulate. As a consequence the female spends long periods entering estrus. Estrus is the most evident phase of the sexual cycle in the cat, which manifests itself with obvious changes in behavior such as rubbing the head against any object, vocalizing, urinating, desire to leave home, etc. So the answer is YES, what you are observing is normal, although annoying. Our recommendation is sterilization, it is the best solution if you know that you are not going to raise your kitten. You will end this unwanted behavior, and at the same time your cat will also benefit, since it now has needs it cannot meet. There are alternatives that consist of hormoning the cat so that it does not enter heat, but in the long run it can develop secondary problems, some of them serious. Consult your veterinarian about the advantages of sterilization.
The jealousy of cats is that scandalous. He finds out to the neighbor! It is best to sterilize it, many of them have a bad time. They stop eating even.

Hi. As you have responded, the environment in which you are depends a lot. From my experience, I can tell you that it repeats constantly if there is no ride. You cannot specify number per year. And depending on the breed, the screams can indeed be very loud. It is therefore advisable to sterilize, because they suffer, their "daddies" too and it is proven that internal problems can be created. You will gain tranquility all.
