Advice About Spaying a Cat in Heat?

How often can a cat be in season? I took my cat in as a stray not knowing at the time that she was pregnant. 5 weeks later she had 7 beautiful kittens. The kittens are now almost 11 weeks old and I have kept mum in for the whole of this time just waiting for the kittens to wean so I can get her spayed. She is going stir crazy being cooped up indoors. Anyhow, I took her to the vet 2 weeks ago to be spayed, but she was in heat so they booked me another appointment for tomorrow.


However, I think she is on heat again as she is sticking her rear end in the air and is affectionate one moment and very spiteful the next. I feel so sorry for her because if she is in season again, the vet will not spay her tomorrow.

My question is this. Is it normal for a female cat to have one season after another? and is it in fact possible to spay her while she is like this? The vet explained to me they won't do it as the womb is too soft to do the operation. Poor girl is going nuts and I just want what's best for her. Thank you for any help you can give me.

Cats go into heat every few days if they are not spayed. So frustrating! They can be spayed during a heat cycle, it is just more dangerous as the blood volume is higher during this time. If your vet won't do it, I'd find one who will.


Explain the situation, and tell the vet you really need her spayed for your peace of mind. Most likely he will do the surgery. Good luck.
