My cat is in heat for the first time and i'm at a loss what to do . Shes getting fixed next week, but is there anything I can do to calm her down until then?? I keep thinking shes in pain since she howls and rolls around alot, but I've read that thats normal.. Lol female cat newbbie ..
She's not in pain. She is sending out signals to any available tom that she's ready, available, and easy.
Don't worry about her. This will pass. Just keep that appointment to get her spayed, or you'll have a lot of little kitties.

The only thing you can do is ignore her. Also, try and avoid petting or patting her rear half, I found that this just encourages them to come around and annoy me for 'attention'. I had to explain that to my husband the first time he was around a female cat in heat (before she was fixed) and he kept patting her on the bum. I was like 'sweetie, she likes that, if you keep doing that she won't leave you alone' ... he says "I know, she always liked her butt patted" and I said "No. She LIKES that." and he was "oh."

Hilarious. Very similiar to a discussion I had with my Hubs about 1 year into our marriage. We were eating breakfast and heard this AWFUL yowling and screaming coming from the yard. Tom was molesting Mamma Cat and Hubs was going for the water hose. I grabbed his arm and asked him WTH he thought he was doing.
Him: I'm going to separate them before they hurt themselves.
Me: Why? (dumbstruck)
Him: Look at them! They're fighting!
Me: *snorts* They're not 'fighting'.
Me: They're copulating.
Buy some filiway from the vet and spray it around...that will chill her out for awhile...if she is big on catnip...that can help too....many times gravol for pets will help out for a few hours of peace
After that...ear muffs or loud music....lol
