Cats/ragdoll kitten


hi i have a ragdoll kitten she is 7mths old and acting quite strange the last couple of days. she is crying and carrying a special toy around with her and not following me around like she does . she is sort of sitting and hiding in different places. i was wondering if she maybe coming into heat. she is eating ok  . thanks for your help  sue

Hi yes sounds to me like she may be going into heat. At 7 months old this is well within the time span for this.

I have a web page about cats in heat which you may find of further interest here


best wishes Kate
