Lazy 5 Vets have provided a formal response to Starla Daniel’s complaint of malpractice resulting in the killing of her cat but the response is opaque and inadequate. The rusty-spotted cat is the world’s smallest cat and certainly the smallest wild cat. It is very cute looking but decidedly wild and particularly vicious. There is a nice story from 1874 of a scientist who had a pet rusty-spotted cat who leapt at a gazelle fawn and tried to kill it. There is a simple reason why we occasionally see animal advocates reacting in an extreme way to animal abuse. Some might say that they never overreact because animal abuse needs a strong reaction.

This is a story that will absolutely infuriate anyone who has a heart and soul. I apologise if this is slightly depressing. I don’t want to add to the problem. How to Deal With a Female Cat in Heat. An un-spayed female cat comes into heat every three to four weeks, and she’s not usually quiet about it! This period, when she’s most receptive to getting pregnant, can last for up to seven days. This means you might have a highly hormonal cat on your hands for one week out of every three.
The best solution, if you don’t want her to have kittens, is to get her spayed by a veterinarian. However, if you do want to breed her, you’ll have to deal with the behaviors that go along with being in heat, like loud meowing and flirty antics. You also need to keep her from getting pregnant when you don’t want her to. When a cat’s in heat, she advertises the fact to increase her chances of finding a boyfriend and having kittens. One way she does this is by vocalizing incredibly loudly and constantly. To an inexperienced owner, it may seem like she’s in pain, but this is perfectly normal behavior. You can either choose to deal with the extra noise, or try to calm her down.
Try plugging in a Feliway diffuser before your cat comes into heat. This synthetic feline pheromone surrounds her with safe, familiar scents. Pheromones are chemical messengers — a similar idea to the pheromones a female gives off to advertise she is in heat. But the ones in Feliway might have a calming, soothing effect on her. It doesn’t work immediately, but the pheromones build up the cat’s sense of well-being over a couple of weeks. As such, it’s best to plug the diffuser in early and leave it running constantly in the background, so she gets the benefit by the time she comes into heat. Not all female cats do this, but some mark their territory with urine. Urine has potent scent markers that she uses to attract mates. Again, there’s nothing you can do to stop this behavior without getting her spayed, so you just have to make do. Making sure she has a clean litter box at all times. Hopefully her house training will lead her to use the box instead of marking in the house. De-odorizing immediately if she does mark.
