Hello again I think this is something very simple and not serious, however I have worked out a fuller answer for you below ... I do wonder if Onyx has not come into season, that would explain precisely what you are seeing. You see unless it is spayed or pregnant a female cat is likely to come into season for about three days each three weeks and they will typically have their first season from five or six months of age.The signs you can expect to see would be some or all of the following :1. The cat becomes more affectionate than usual.2. Your cat rolls around the floor.3. She carries her tail to one side.4. The cat becomes very vocal and meows a lot. { Calling } This vocalisation can be very much as you describe.5. Your cat assumes a flat position with her hind end in the air and may walk this way.6. She may lick her genital area more and may urinate more and you may see a small discharge There is really nothing much you can do to help out a cat in season, the best thing to do would be to have her spayed at the first opportunity. There are drugs to take the female cat out of season but they are only temporary and I personally would not use them on my own cat. But if this is the diagnosis at least it is a natural event and Onyx is not ill in any way.I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you. Regards, ***** ***** be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue, such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
