Is it possible to go into a fake heat? Yesterday, Cheyanne was yowling, crying, doing the "butt wave", all the signs of being in heat. Today she did none of that. Did she go into a false heat? Im going to get her spayed, as soon as I have enough money. Which is hopefully soon.

    A cat in heat is basically like a cat in heat forever...until they are bred or spayed. Cats are polyestrus which means that they will go into heat cycles periodically during their fertile years. These heat cycles may start as early as the fourth or fifth month of a kitten's life, and will continue until she is either bred or spayed. Heat cycles in cats last from several days to two weeks or longer, and repeat every two to three weeks. You can see then, how a female cat may almost always seem to be in heat. The breeding season in cats is practically year-round, running as early as February, and as late as December, but in the western hemisphere, March through September is generally regarded as the breeding season. Maybe she spotted another cat yesterday, outside of your house, which caused her to be more vocal. I don't know where in Nebraska you are, but here are some low cost spay options for you.
