For the first time estrus begins in cats in six months. You will notice some changes in the behavior of your pet. The cat will begin to meow loudly, bend back, lift up the tail and roll on the floor, can become aggressive.

In cats, puberty occurs a little later – at about 8 months. Even gentle animals at this time become more independent, some mark the territory. Veterinarians recommend to castrate the cat at this particular age, but it is still too early for mating – the reproductive system is still in its formative stage.

Immediately before mating, cut the claws of both animals to avoid injury. It is not recommended to wash the cat before meeting with a partner: it destroys the cat-attracting smell.

By tradition, the cat is brought into the cat’s territory – a safe place for him, on heat day 4. To avoid lining is recommended to consult a veterinarian.

Knitting will take several days. Once in an incomprehensible situation, the cat at first may show aggression or hide, which is quite natural and normal. Animals need some time to get used to each other.

For a cat, it is recommended to bring a separate container for food, a tray and a carrier in which it will hide if it wishes.

The cat will begin to flirt with a partner when fully prepared for mating. The process itself does not take much time. Fertilization takes place within 24 hours if all goes well. Animals can mate several times until one of them loses interest in the process.

The cat after mating will want to hide and lick out – do not disturb the pet, this is normal behavior. The cat can also roll on the floor and make up.
