Cat on heat

My cat was neutered 12 months ago but apparently they must have left some ovariab tissue in there because she is definitely on heat today! She has a vets appointment on monday for hormone tests and I think they will probably have to do a second surgery on her poor thing. Meanwhile next doors male cat is round constantly we are keeping her inside so he cant harrass her but she is unsettled etc. Does anyone have any good tips for calming her down etc

Afraid not - although maybe another poster might have a bright thought.

Batten down the hatches and better luck next time. Thank Goodness it's winter for you. (No open windows etc.)

I once had a cat who came into season before neutering. The only thing that seemed to calm her down was brushing her, long even strokes down the back. Prior to that, and after, she hated it.

Can you get hold of any Zylkene? It's a sort of kitty valium.

Thanks both of you, yes its much easier keeping her inside as its winter, but no fun for her bless her. Rubbish do you know if I can get dome thing like that from pets at home or would it need to come from a vet?

Amazon sell it, if you sign for a free trial of prime it will arrive quickly, just don't forget to cancel the trial.

Mine went into heat just before she was due to get spayed. What a racket!

I filled a sock up with catnip to distract her in the end.

Yes, like Fluffy says. I got mine from Amazon. It's a milk protein, so not actual drugs even though it has the same calming effect.
