I have two kittens, they are almost 5 months old. When I go them I was told they were both females but only one is female and the other is a male. Today I noticed my female is in heat. The male is going to get fixed in two weeks. My question would is because the female is in heat now should I separate them for now until the male is fixed. According to a different website the male is about 7 months old before they begin to mate. Since they are use to being with each other I don't want to separate them unless I have to.
There is evidence that even males as young as four months have produced litters. You should definately seperate until you male is neutered and have your female spayed immediately. They can spay even during her heat which will make her alot more comfortable and stop the "bad" behaivor that comes along with heat.
kittens can be very I meen very sensitive my friend comes over every day she has a boy cat named bec so one of my kittens smelled her backpack and got into heat! then we got them fixed and she was fine although they had to put cones around there necks talk about funny!
We can save animals and end these deaths by working to make America a "no-birth" nation today. The only way to stop the suffering of the innocent victims of companion animal overpopulation is to prevent their births through sterilization efforts. The United States will never be a "no-kill" nation unless it becomes a no-birth nation. Why? Every last one of the millions of deaths of animals at shelters and in the streets, alleyways, fields, basements, and back yards that occur every year could be prevented through spaying and neutering. Every single stray cat, every neglected dog, every rabbit kept in a hutch in a drafty garageŚcame from an animal who wasn't spayed or neutered. Animals must be killed and euthanized by the millions every year because prospective guardians choose to purchase animals from pet shops and breeders and still don't sterilize their dogs and cats.
