Heat Wave?

Maggie has been vocalizing. Loudly, and somewhat randomly. Right now she is sort of chirping/meeping/murphing around the house.

She has been lounging around in the flat-kitty or rear-up Do Me Baby position a lot this last day or so.

Dumb question ... could this cat be in heat?

And if so, how long will it last, and do I need to reschedule the surgery?

p.s. for wintery veggie goodness, check out the latest at da food blog.

While waiting to take her to the vet, you can amuse yourself by placing your hand on her lower back and "humping" her. OK. I'm a meanie. But I did that to Mehitabel when she went into heat after her last kitten went to a new home and it was pretty funny. She then later walloped the other cat I had (a neutered male) because he did not give her a proper humping.

I don't know how the vets are with spays now, but they used to wait until the cat finished her heat before doing the Deed. But your vet will advise you.

I wonder if she is still going to grow after this or if the first heat marks the end of her growth. If she doesn't grow more, you're going to have one sweet little morsel of a cat on your lap, er, hands.
