1- Is she always walking like that or this comes and goes?

2- How old is she?

3- Is she spayed?

Not sure of age. She is small and looks to be less than a year. She was abonded. It comes and goes and goes but is most of the time. The vet we took her to shaved her stomach and could not find a scar.

ßhe walks around wining all the time.

Friend, the symptoms/behavior and history you are describing are consistent with your cat being in heat. Cats are a little different than most mammals in that they can go in and out of heat during a +/-3 week period until she is bred. The way she is walking and being vocalized is in attempt to look for a male to breed. I would recommend you discuss with your vet about taking her into surgery to get her spayed. Please follow the link below to learn more about estrus in cats.
