I love my kitties. They are my babies. This morning though they decided to wake us up at 6am standing on our heads meowing their fool faces off, and then our little kitten brought her toy mouse to bed so she could spin around in circles playing. THEN a little bit later on this morning I’m watching her and she’a acting kind of funny. She’s been really chirpy lately (like non-stop chatter), really really really wants to play with the other cats (both males), really wanting big cuddles. Hmmmm… Google? Ya. Kitty’s in heat. Crap. I had an appointment to get her spayed next week! So called the vet, and managed to get them to bump the appointment to this Wednesday. Now I’m just watching her try to harass my poor cats into paying attention to her. She’s such a little sl*t!!!! You can tell what old men they are though, they’re just looking at her like “what the heck is your problem!? Can’t you see I’m trying to nap in front of the fireplace?!” and bonk her on the head with a paw. LOL! uuuuuggggghhhh cats! Anyone have any tips on how to keep her under control until Wednesday? (She’s an indoor cat and both males are neutered)

I’m sorry but there is no hope! She might start yowling soon and if that happens, the only thing we could do to sleep was lock her out of the bedroom. Good luck!

Haha, I’m sorry! They get sooooo loud before they’re spayed. At least you have the appointment.
Our cat Zoey had a habit of yowling at night because she wanted attention and/or food. It was really hard to ignore, because I really needed my sleep and R sleeps through everything but I just didn’t respond to it at all, and she broke the habit. I think with a cat in heat, though, that wouldn’t really work.
Think about it this way: at least it’s relatively cheap to spay a cat! When my horse goes into heat, she’s crazy obnoxious, but surgery to spay mares is really invasive and insanely expensive, so it’s relatively unheard of in females.

LOL! Great! Oh man. She must be a bit older than the vet estimated. I’m so happy they were able to take her Wednesday rather than having to wait another week until her appointment though!

Ohhhhh honey, I sympathize! I had a cat in heat this time last year and she was a major whore!

All I can say is at least she has a cute little chirrupy meow! I can’t imagine dealing with a horse in heat. Good lord. Horses are so huge and scare me at the best of times, I wouldn’t want to be around one with her panties in a bunch!

A friend used to take his cat into the shower/bath when she was in heat. Seems the water somehow calmed her down a bit.

Cats in heat are so dirty; before my first cat was spayed, she’d flip her tail over and push her butt in the face of anyone who walked by. So gross!

Oh gosh! I was a vet tech about a year ago & everytime we got this question we always had to tell the owners just to keep them AWAY from the other cats or else you’ll get yourself in trouble!!! Just be prepared that when you do get her spayed when she’s in heat that she’s going to bleed a LOT more in surgery!

The other two are neutered and she’s really just getting on their nerves. They keep hissing at her and bonking her on the head (thank goodness), it’s pretty funny to watch actually.
Thanks for the info about the surgery. Our vet is really amazing, so I’m sure she’ll be in good hands. I’m glad I called today and gave them the heads up when I moved the appointment closer, at least they’ll be prepared. Until then I’ll just try to keep the head bonking to a minimum.
