2. What are the Signs My Cat is in Heat?

Although every cat is different, when they are in heat, they display typically uniform behaviors. Cats aren’t unlike humans in that respect, with our changeable moods and our body’s tendency to bloat. For cats, however, their signs are much more physical. One of the most telling signs that your cat is in heat will be that she’s far clingier and attention-seeking than usual. Other signs include spraying urine around the house, rubbing against things more often, and being loudly vocal. In addition to these things, she’ll also assume the ‘estrus’ position, with her tail straight and her rear in the air.
