Major Question About Cats
Okay, as all of you know, my rescue cat Polka just had kittens a week ago yesterday. How soon does the mother go back into heat? I am asking this, because now she is trying her best to run outside, and climb out the windows. I think she is in heat and trying to find someone to breed with. I can't have her getting pregnant this soon after birth, the only thing I can think of is putting her harness on her and letting her walk outside. I just need her to hold off until the kittens are weaned so I can get her spayed, but I don't want to worry about her running out and getting pregnant again. What can I do? How soon are cats supposed to come in heat after birth? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
