Usually, the first estrus comes suddenly and is not obvious, which is often not noticed by the owner.

       2. It should be noted that different breeds lead to different oestrus. Relatively speaking, long haired cats are in later estrus than short haired cats, purebred cats are in later estrus than domestic cats, and some breeds, such as Bosi, will not be in estrus until more than a year. Depending on the situation, this requires the owner to take special care of and pay attention to his cat!

       3. From the beginning of sexual maturity, the female cat has an estrus cycle about 3 weeks, each cycle lasts about one week, and the interval between the end of each estrus and the next new estrus is about two weeks. During the estrus period, the female cat will show obvious restlessness and irritability, and the eating and sleeping will also be reduced. If it is a domestic cat kept indoors, it is likely to try to escape and find the target. The owner should pay special attention to it!

       4. During estrus, the female cat will make a violent howl, and sometimes there will be loud and plaintive crying. And it’s day and night, so unless it’s a female cat who wants to have offspring, it’s best to give birth control surgery to her before she starts her first estrus. To do so, whether it is good for the female cat itself or for its owners, families and even neighbors, is a civilized move without any disadvantages.

If the oestrus female cat is locked in the room, when she hears the call of the male cat, she will violently scratch the doors and windows, and be eager to go out. If the cat’s back is touched and lowered with her hand, it will be quiet and will raise her tail. Some female cats are particularly sensitive when they are in estrus, their eyes are bright, they are unwilling to eat and wander around.

Usually, the second and third phases are the most likely to succeed. Female cats in estrus, eyes bright, loss of appetite, increased activity, like to go out wandering, especially at night, appears restless.

However, it is best not to let the cat reproduce at this time, because the cat’s body is not yet mature, and its bones, muscles and viscera are still growing and developing. If this time of mating reproduction, the female cat and offspring are not conducive. Therefore, it is necessary to wait until the cat’s body is mature before it can reproduce.

       If it is the owner’s cat to the estrus period, it is recommended that the landlord should take it to be sterilized. Please do not abandon it because it makes you can’t stand it when it is in estrus. Because the living conditions of stray cats are so hard, I have been taking care of six stray cats, and I know their situation is miserable.

       Question and answer of cat sterilization

       1. How old can a cat be sterilized?

       Once a cat is sexually mature, it can be considered for sterilization. Generally speaking, 6-8 months old is the best time for sterilizing cats. Early implementation of sterilization surgery, cats recover quickly, the risk of disease is low. Many parents of sterilized cats reported that cats who had been sterilized earlier tended to be pure and happy.

       2. Do cats need serum before sterilization?

       Cats vaccinated on time every year do not need to be injected with serum before sterilization. The protective effect of timely vaccination is enough to protect the cat. Immunized cats injected with serum will destroy the immunity produced by the vaccine in cats, which is very harmful to the health of cats.

       If the cat has not been immunized, the vaccine can be injected one week before sterilization to achieve protection.

       3. Can I have prophylactic injections at the same time on the day of sterilization?

       If there is no time to vaccinate in advance, it is also OK to vaccinate on the day of operation. However, it should be noted that:

       1) Be sure to choose a regular animal doctor and a highly skilled veterinarian

       2) Be sure to choose a vaccine with quality assurance

       The first point is to ensure the success of the operation and exclude all secondary infections caused by the operation. Second, ensure that the vaccine can take effect in time to further ensure the safety of cats.

       At present, most of the stray cats rescued by lucky local cat community rescue project are immunized on the day of sterilization operation. Judging from the current situation, the recovery situation is still very good.

       4. How long does it take for a cat to recover after sterilization?

       It only takes a few minutes for male cats and half an hour for female cats to be discharged. Generally, after 1-2 days of recovery, the cat can take care of itself (the male cat can recover on the same day). After 5-7 days of recovery, you can share a good life with the cat.

       Therefore, as the owner, you only need 1-2 days to monitor the whole process of sterilizing the cat. It is a good choice to take the cat for surgery on weekends.

       5. I’ve heard that male cats will have urinary tract infection after surgery, because the accidental events that the operation is not done well often occur?

       If we choose a regular animal hospital and a highly skilled veterinarian, normal sterilization will not bring other problems to the health of the cat, and the above problems will not occur. Once again, it is suggested that we should choose a regular animal hospital and a highly skilled veterinarian to sterilize the cat.

       6. My Mimi has given birth to several nests. Now, the estrus of several times a year is very noisy, and does not like to eat, and the body is very thin. I want to ask if there is any other way, besides sterilization, is there any other way to make it not cry and not hurt the body?

       There is no contraceptive drug specially developed for cats. Sterilization is the best method recommended by veterinarians all over the world.

       It is very wrong to give the cat a human contraceptive. The hormone components in the drug will greatly interfere with the hormone balance in the cat. Taking it often will cause great adverse effects, even tumors.

       Native cat netizen’s words:

       Roaming kitten: my Mimi used to be in estrus not long ago. At first, we all thought it was spring, so we found a boyfriend and gave birth to kittens. Later, I took her to the hospital for examination, and found her bilateral ovarian cysts. Therefore, the direct KC ~ ~ the female cat KC is less than 200 yuan. This money can exchange for its long life and our more peaceful life. It’s really killing two birds with one stone~~

       7. What preparation should be made before sterilization?

       Knowledge preparation: if you are taking your cat for the first time for sterilization, it is recommended to refer to the experience articles of other cat friends in lucky local cat website before operation, which can help you learn more about sterilization operation and postoperative care.

       Preparation for surgery: determine the immunity of the cat; contact a reliable veterinarian; in order to prevent the cat from vomiting due to anesthetic effect, fasting 24 hours before sterilization and water 8 hours before sterilization; take the cat to sterilization within the agreed time.

       Article preparation: special cat bag (box) or flat box, urine pad, eye drops (general hospital will give).

       8. Can I use my own eye drops for my cat?

       Certainly. However, it should be noted that the eye drops after sterilization are because the cat’s eyes can not be closed after anesthesia. Eye drops can prevent dry eyes. Therefore, choose the most basic eye drops, such as chloramphenicol eye drops, it is OK. Some eye drops that are used by people, added with coolants and other therapeutic functions, should not be given to cats. Without eye drops, the same effect can be achieved with normal saline.

       9. Does summer do sterilization easily inflame?

       Choose a regular animal hospital and skilled veterinarian, summer can also be a good way to complete the sterilization of the cat. It should be noted that:

       Don’t get heatstroke on the way to the hospital; if the cat’s breathing and heartbeat are fast when you get to the hospital, you should wait for the cat to return to normal before anesthesia; after anesthesia, the cat’s temperature regulation ability is very poor, so you should take an air-conditioned car on the way home after the operation; put it in a ventilated and cool room after going home.

       10. Can old cats be sterilized?

       Choose a regular animal hospital and a highly skilled veterinarian. Cats from the age of 10 can be sterilized.

       The estrus of a cat can be considered to be at any time, as long as it is sexually mature.

       In the surrounding environment, the smell and sound of the opposite sex and the same kind, or even similar, can lead to the cat’s estrus. The next one can be done two days after the end of the last estrus. If you don’t deal with a cat, it can be in the estrus state almost all the time 365 days a year.
