so we are going to have some time to put up with this loud meowing too.
these tips are working so far on my little girl: yes, catnip helps alittle, we have two levels so she goes downstairs to do her mating skreech (luck!), she hits on the dog...distraction if nothing else :?
, and simply spending time with her. get really comfortable with the idea of sexual impulses (get some maturity) and rub your cat down. give her the feel of at least alittle satisfaction. and im not trying to be offensive here. but it works. i gave Raven a good rub down and gave the normal amount of kisses..and now she is back to sleeping quietly
on the kitchen chair.
I would also, try hard to were the cat down before bed. play with toys, chase her around the house, more rub downs...lots
of rub downs!...lol. whatever will make her so tired she doesn't want to stay up all night looking to get laid.
good luck all
All you do by putting the cost off in the beginning is cost yourself more in the long run.. greater chances of cancer and other diseases cost MUCH more down the road then the cost of a spay
I'm not sure where you are located, but in the US you can go to www.spayusa.org
if you need financial assistance.
