I can't take it anymore. We took her to the vet to get her spayed, but he said she's too old for such an operation. She's 18 or 19 years old, I think. This is ridiculous.
I love my cat and feel sorry for her because she can't help it, but jeeeez, I want to punt her out the window too!
Are you sure she's truly in heat and isn't actually suffering from a health issue like hyperthyroidism? HyperT can cause cats to yowl at night. Did the vet do any blood work? If not, take her back and ask for a full senior blood panel and urinalysis.
Dementia can also result in restless, yowling cats. Leaving a night-light on helps some cats. What happens if you let her in your bedroom at night?
