Cat Keeps Going into Heat?

My cat has been going into heat every 4-5 days since January 10th and she stays in heat between 6-8 days. This time it has already been 9 days and I am worried. I'm trying to get her spayed, but by the time I make an appointment when she comes out of heat she is back in it by the time of the appointment. She is really worrying me. Is this normal? Can she get spayed while she is in heat?

This is a frustrating time for you and her but all you can do is keep trying to catch her when she is not in heat.
Some vets will do the surgery when a cat is in heat but charge an extra fee.

Maybe you could make an appointment for 2 weeks ahead as soon as she goes into heat and hope that will be good.

It is not unusual for cats to stay in heat for 10 days so that is not a problem but your vet may want to make sure she is in good health so try to see them as soon as she goes through a heat cycle even if you do not have an appointment. Vets see this all the time so most are understanding even about cases like this.

Your cat will continue to go into rapid heat cycles until she gets pregnant, gets spayed, or mates without getting pregnant. I would consult with the vet. Perhaps you can take the cat to the vet when she is in heat, she can stay there until the heat cycle is over, and be spayed immediately after.

Talk to your vet about the best way to manage this so the spay can be done the minute she stops the heat process. Prayers!! Post back what you learn!

It is not really terribly unusual for cats to cycle like yours does. Clearly it is frustrating. Call your Vet and explain what is happening. Ask him/her how they like to handle this situation and then cooperate with them.


They see it often enough to know what to do. Best of luck with your girl.

I know this all too well. I rescued a lot of cats and kittens and it doesn't take them anytime at all before they start going into heat. A cat will have heats every other week, once the spring and summer are near. I wish there was an easy answer.

I think that it might be a cyst on the ovary perhaps, but since you are eventually going to get her spayed it won't matter. I know that it is so expensive to have surgery done for animals. I hope you can find a program that helps with expenses, if you do want to get her spayed. Best wishes!
