Cat in heat/how long between cycles?

October 25th, 2003, 09:40 AM

Our 8 month siamese/ragdoll kitty is in heat. She howling and purring and keeps her butt up in the air.

I have read cycles can last 3-4 or up to a week, but how long between heat cycles? We are going to get her spayed, but just wondering how long between cycles.

Once a cat goes into heat, it can be more or less continuous until she is bred or spayed, depending on the individual cat. Not pleasant for owners, and very draining and unhealthy for the cat. Don't try to wait until she is out of heat to get her spayed.
