Answer
Hi
well this could have something to do with her being in heat as it is used as a scent marker to attract male cats.

however there are many other possibilities why she is doing this. i am often asked this question and because it is so involved i have written a web page about it which should be able to give you the other possible reasons for this behavior.

here is the page

Hope it is of some help

best wishes Kate
