How to Calm a Cat in Heat

Cats in heat, or estrus, can be very vocal and will often demand attention from the owner. One way to calm a cat in heat is by feeding them tuna fish. Regardless of what you feed them, take care not to upset your cat’s stomach and avoid fatty foods such as greasy sausages and pizza.

Cats in heat, or estrus, can be very vocal and will often demand attention from the owner. One way to calm a cat in heat is by feeding them tuna fish. Regardless of what you feed them, take care not to upset your cat’s stomach and avoid fatty foods such as greasy sausages and pizza.

The cat heat cycle is a normal and healthy part of the life of every cat. Though it can be painful, you may want to help calm your kitty while she’s in her ebony-hued blessing from Muses above! Keep them away from other males until all signs have passed for best results–or keep playing with felines by giving them some scratchicky treats (yummy!).

There are also many ways we could soothe our furry friends including using special synthetic pheromones or just being really affectionate throughout this time period; whatever works best means less stress on everyone involved.

Steps for calming a cat in

1) Recognize that your cat is in heat.

It is important for us to note when our cat enters “heat” so that we may prepare accordingly. Once the cat in heat signs are recognized, it’s time to ask yourself if you think your cat is indeed in heat.

If she is spending more than usual time near her food bowl and not eating as much as she usually does, then she might be in heat. She will also likely start licking her genitals more than usual (if at all), which is another sign that helps us recognize when our cat is in heat.

2) Isolate her from male cats.

By not allowing cats in heat near any male felines, you will help to keep them from mating. This way, your kitty can rest quietly and focus on resting during the estrus period. Though this is usually good advice for cat owners to follow anyway (unless they are planning on breeding), it’s especially essential when your cat is in heat.

3) Give your cat something warm to sit on.

If you’re in the mood to be creative, put your cat in heat in an empty box and sit it on top of a heating pad. This will soothe the kitty’s tender belly while also making her feel warm and cozy. Just make sure to cover the heating pad with something soft for extra comfort before putting your cat in there!

Even without a heating pad, you can still put an item of clothing that you have already worn next to your skin under the box. By doing this, your cat will feel as though she is being held by someone and it should help calm her down a little bit.

4) Use catnip only if it calms your cat down.

You can also give your kitty a catnip toy or a little crack of dried catnip. However, only do this if it seems to cause a calming effect on your furry friend. It is better to err on the side of caution and avoid using any mind-altering substances on your cat unless you are 100% certain that they will not cause any problems.

If you use catnip and it doesn’t seem to calm your cat down, give her a little bit of orange juice or tuna fish instead. These tend to have a calming effect on cats in heat and should be just what the doctor ordered in most cases.

This is just a short-term solution, but it may give you an hour or two of quiet.

Spaying and Other Long-Term Solutions

1) Spay the cat.

This is the best solution for those of us who wish to avoid a long-term commitment to caring for a cat in heat. Simply bring your kitty to the vet and have her spayed. Once this procedure is done, she will be safe from needing you to care for her during estrus every few months.

Of course, many vets recommend spaying your cat before she goes through her first heat cycle, so keep that in mind if you are thinking about owning a pet after reading this article.

2) Consider waiting until after the heat is over before spaying her

It can be quite expensive to take your cat in for spaying, so you may want to wait until after this time has passed before doing so. One month should go by pretty quickly, especially since it will only feel like two weeks tops. If she enters heat again soon after the first estrus period is over, then just repeat this process and wait until the heat is over to take her in.

3) Use hormonal therapy as a last resort.

Some people don’t like the idea of spaying a cat, but many of these same people do not want to deal with a female cat going into heat every few months either. For those people, there is a solution that uses hormone therapy. However, this is generally not recommended for young cats or cats who have never been through estrus before.

If you do decide to go with hormone therapy, please be sure to check with a veterinarian first. You will also have to continue administering it on a regular basis for the rest of your cat’s life. This is only one example but there are several different kinds of hormonal therapies that can be used depending on the situation at hand.

Conclusion

I hope this article gave you a better idea of what to do if your cat goes into heat. Now that you know more about the estrus period, you will be better prepared for it and can make a decision as to whether or not spaying is right for your little friend.
