Ok, question's coming..quick story first..
We rescued a stray cat from outside about a month ago that was very people friendly and kept coming to our door. How could we say no, lol! Well, my brother wanted to keep her and my parent's said it was ok. We named her Gabby, she is a sweetheart! So, she lives at my parents house. So, we took her to the vet a month ago when we found her. We had feline lukemia and other blood tests done. She had a complete checkup,and all checked out fine! The vet thought she was about 1 years old, small and petite, about 7 1/2 lbs. However, she had no way of knowing for sure if she was spayed, she couldn't see any scars or anything. When she checked her, she wasn't in heat or anything either. She said as long as she was only going to be around my 3 cats, who are all fixed, and since she was going to be strictly indoors, it was up to us when to get her fixed. She said they might not even know until they were to start surgery if she was fixed or not, some places do a tiny incision with no scars. I didn't want to overwhelm Gabby with getting her used to everything and all of us and her new home, we didn't want to lose her trust, so we decided we would wait a little bit and take her in to get spayed, rather than right away. I am not familiar with this, since Snugs and Ging were fixed when I adopted them, and we got Smokie done at 7 months. She said it's not like dogs going into heat, cats are very clean, so there wouldn't be blood and they are really friendly and can make real loud meows, I guess looking for a mate.
Ok, onto the question. My brother called me today and said Gabby was acting weird, but I have never heard of this. She was fine this morning and when he got home. He went later to check on her and as soon as he went in the room, she got low to the ground, looking like a pounce stance, moving her tail and back end. He thought "oh I guess she's playing" But she kept doing this, everytime she saw him or anyone else, but when they left the room and observed her, she wasn't doing this anymore?
But they would go back in and she would get all low to the ground again, and stay that way, like in pounce mode, until they left the room. It's very weird. They would bring her into the other room, and she was still doing it?! Now, she stopped doing it. I have no idea if this has anything to do with going into heat, I have never heard of it. I told them to listen for any loud meows like the vet said, and we will go from there.
Does anyone have any ideas on this weird behavior??
