hi all,

my cat milky is in heat. river, my male, and milky have been "doing it" a lot over the past two days. River is like half fixed, he has a vasectomy so his chances of getting her pregnant are slim (plus milky's chances are slim too, the reason we got her is because the breeder said she wouldnt get pregnant) plus, he is really inexperienced, he just humps her back without getting it in!!! anyways, he has been biting her neck HARD. there are scratches and bite marks all over her neck. we even found some of her peach fuzz missing :Hysterical: i feel really bad but i think neck biting is part of their whole "doing it" thing. any suggestions for this? i wanted to cover up her neck with something but i didnt want to irritate it any more.
thanks for your help!!

Any reason for a "vasectomy"?

1) Separate kitties

2) Cut the bottom of a sock off and roll it down to where you can form a collar for Milky. Try to allow it enough room to come up on the neck and down some to the shoulders. Ideally, River will grab this instead. Ideally.

I would keep them apart just in case. But if he had A vasectomy he can't make babies.
The neck bitting is what they do Leo bites Athena so hard sometimes :Cry:

That is what a normal male does to a female in heat.
Is she loud?
Some cats can scream very loud when they go in heat.

Lilly, I know what A female cat sounds like in heat and if I where you and not breding I would have her fixed just for your own peace and quiet, it can be very crazy! And in the long run it is better for her because they will keep going into heat until their body gets what they want, and that is not good for them.
In the summer when we have the windows open and Athen is in heat you can hear her 3 blocks away!

yes she is VERY loud!!!! i live in an apartment and i like pray my neighbors dont hear her!!! The breeder we bought River from got him the vasectomy, i think because either he was too old or his balls were too big. i am going to try the sock thing. we were thinking about getting milky fixed but we dont want to put her through that. and idk if she is too old? i think she is around 4 or 5 (maybe even older..when we first got her the breeder said she was 1, but when we took her to the vet he said she was around 3..and the breeder did not give us her papers) thanks for all your help guys!

Animals are NEVER too old for anesthesia unless they're in organ compromise/failure.

Google "Pyometra" and see why I'd recommend you getting your cat spayed. To say I see about 1 case of this a month is an understatement. And it can kill a healthy pet. It's more of a risk than surgery is.
