Lyra is in heat. She weighs only about 4 lbs, and she is still a kid-- but she was born in August, so it is about time. She has spent the last 3 days with her rear in the air, singing and shouting. Luckily we live on the second floor, and there is no way she can get out. We do not need her knocked up when she is the human equivalent of a 12 year old.
But I feel so bad for her-- and the noise is appalling.
If she were a dog we would have a six month reprive, but cats don't work that way. (Really cat reproduction is so weird! Their ovulation is triggered by sex-- stupid arrangement, seems to me.)
I am calling around to see how to get it done quickly, and decently, without spending too much.
Yodel and Hazel are quite puzzled.
