Extra tlc for cat in heat - reply to AnnmarieC.
I found your advice the most helpful. My neutered male has been trying to comfort my little girl, but she still has been making the most horrendous noise! So I tried what you suggested, lots of rubdowns and body scratching. It seems to help. We are living with friends right now, so I can't afford for Scout to be making alot of noise. I am grateful for this forum.
