How long does a cat stay in 'heat'? This is my first cat, and her first time. We are planning on getting her 'fixed' as soon as we get our income tax back. GAWD! I'm not sure how much longer I can take this speaking in tongues, that's been going on 24/7 for the past 2 days!!! She keeps looking out the window, like she's waiting for her prince charming to come and rescue her. And I swear, she tried to lure ME down to the basement last night,,,:confused: . So how much longer will she be this 'other' cat? About how much does it cost? I know that a vet will not spay while they are in heat, because I had a dog fixed, but, I'm thinking if it doesn't last much longer, I will be asking for a 'cat spaying' for my birthday this week.

Hate to break it to ya, but well, here, read this,:

Q. How long will my dog/cat stay in heat?
A. Dogs stay in heat an average of three weeks. They usually come in heat every six to nine months. Cats are unlike dogs. They will almost constantly stay in heat until they are bred. The act of breeding is necessary for ovulation to occur in the cat.

I feel your pain, I had a cat, years ago that did the YOWWWWWL and weird "Come get me" behavior for more than a month before I had saved up the money to have her spayed. And yes, most vets WILL spay or neuter a pet while it is in heat, though some may charge extra.
Good Luck!!!!

Thanks everyone for the replies. Must be different with cats than dogs then,,,thanks for the heads up socks1211 and sharinbo. I'll be calling the vet in the morning. I feel really bad for her, cause I know she hasn't slept hardly any, being as nobody else has had much sleep. The 'voices' are non-stop, so I know she has to be miserable, and I can't get that damn 2LiveCrew song out of my head...."Oh me so ******, me love you long time.."

OMG Sharinbo!!! I just reread where you said a MONTH!!
<definitely calling the vet in the morning!!!

LOL sorry but I can't help but laugh our cat is 13 and she was never fixed or bred so for about a week every month or so she is REAL friendly.

OMG! Was talking to my friend, who takes her pets to the same vet I do,,,She told me that, he had told her before, to get the cat to stop the 'call of the wild', to take a cue tip, covered with KY jelly, and,,,,,,I HUNG UP ON HER!!!!

Lora,,,do you still have the kitten my sister gave you?

jademyst13,,,how have you stood it all these years,,,three days now, and I'm about to slice my wrists!!!

Same here cab,,,I have to wonder though,,,if there are people that actually take that advice,,,and if they share a cigarette with the cat afterwards,,,lol.

OMG! I DIDNOT want that image! LMAO! :p

Yes you CAN get her spayed while she's in heat.
Yes it will cost you more money.
Yes it will be worth every penny!
It cost more because the surgery last longer. There's more to tie off and it takes more time and anestisia (sp?). It's only about $15 more so just go!
My Lovey was in heat for about a week before I snapped and took her to the vet. Usually heat in cats is 2-3 weeks. If they are not pregnant they'll repeat the heat after a few months!
I feel for you, I have a calico who's next in line for spaying. My Yorkie Mix is getting it first! I keep my cats in 100% of the time so If Pip does go into heat, she's safe!
You can have a cat in early pregnancy spayed too!
So if you think a Tom has got to her, get to a vet right away.
THAT Or you'll be adding to the already abundant
supply of unwanted pets:(
Good luck!
