Do cats come into "Season" as dogs do? If so what are the signs?
Yes, cats will come into "heat." Usual signs consist of rolling around on their back, meowing or "yowling" quite a bit and sometimes sticking their hind end into the faces of other cats around. Some females can also become a bit more aggressive towards other animals and people. Cats typically come into heat the first time around 6 mos of age. They will usually go in and out of heat very week or so during the spring and fall. The only way to stop the behavior changes and the heat cycles is to have them spayed.
