Thank you for your post!

Is she spayed?

Is it a deep howling cry?

no shes not spayed. and its not really deep. its just continuous and when she lays down she keeps moving like it hurts to lay. She also stays up on her back feet when she trys to lay down like it hurts.

While I can not rule out pain without an examination - with your - posts above - I have a strong suspicion that she is exhibiting the behavior of a cat in heat.

My personal cat had similar behavior right before she was to be spayed, at the same age.

While not an emergency - I would recommend she is evaluated by your veterinarian and spayed - which should resolve these abnormal signs you are seeing.
