Hi, JACustomer. Thanks for your question. How old is your cat? Is she spayed?

Checking in, JACustomer. How is your girl doing today?

Hello, and welcome!

From your description, it sounds like your cat is in heat, if she is not spayed. If this is the case, she is not in any pain, but is calling for a mate with that weird meow. The best thing for you to do is have her seen by her vet for some preliminary testing and set a date for her spay surgery. Being spayed is healthiest for her, because it will prevent the chance for a serious uterine infection called 'pyometra' and will also decrease her chances for developing mammary cancer.

If she has already been spayed, please let me know and I will be glad to continue our conversation.

Please be so kind as to rate my answer with positive feedback, as that is the only way I receive recognition for my assistance. Just select 3-5 stars from the ratings box on your page. Thank you very much!

Providing a positive rating will not end our conversation, should you need me for any follow-up. Simply click 'Reply' for clarification or additional information, if needed.

Warmest regards,
