Cats are mammals with a very strong and accentuated sexuality.
Cats reach sexual maturity at about 10 months , although their first heat can come when they are barely 5 months old. However, the time when the cat has its first zeal is not the same in all cases, because it depends on several factors: weight (the female must reach a minimum weight to have the zeal), the breed (the breeds of short hair Siamese type are precocious and reach sexual maturity before the breeds of long hair such as Persian), and the environment (external factors such as the presence of a male in the surrounding area or climate are decisive).
The season of cat's zeal is formed by a series of numerous short periods that, in the wild, begins in spring with the prolongation of daytime hours, and ends in autumn, with the reduction of the same.
In the case of domestic cats, who live in continuous light and temperature conditions inside the houses, the period of zeal extends throughout the year, and can happen even in the middle of winter. Therefore, it can be stated that cats have periods of zeal almost continuously and intermittently, every 2 or 3 weeks.
During heat, the cat behaves in a special way. She becomes much more affectionate , trying to get attention at all times. Mowel more often and intensively, rubs against your legs asking you to caress her, scramble everywhere...
One of the greatest signs of zeal is the strong smell that your urine gives off during those days, similar to the smell of ammonia, used as a weapon to attract males and reproduce.
Although the female is fertile from the first heat, it is not advisable to reproduce before reaching maturity . The same goes for the male, who will not be sexually mature until after a year.
On the other hand, if you do not intend your cat to breed, the best option for her and for you is sterilization , a measure that does not entail side effects in cats and that has many advantages in their health and well-being .
