Yes my 6 month old cat fidget is going through her first heat cycle she has become somewhat lethargic her appetite has decreased but she is eating her water intake has slightly increased as well there is a clear watery like discharge coming from the vaginal area is this common in certain mixed breeds should I be concerned
In some cats the heat cycle lasts until they mate (or are spayed), which results in lots of discomfort for the cat.
The heat cycle in cats generally has episodes of heat and relaxation, that lasts for 1 month. After one month the cycle repeats, and the cat enters in heat again.
The problem is that cats do not ovulate until they mate, and having active ovaries for a long time is not advisable.
If you want to have a cat litter, we advise you to have it as soon as possible and then spay her in order to avoid health problems.
All the best for you and Fidget.
