Our neighbors have male cats, not all are neutered, she became pregnant. She disappeared when it was time for her to deliver, when she came back alone, I thought something must have happened to the kittens, but about a week later she brought them to the woods near the house.

The kittens still nurse, but also eat the dry food I put out for her. The kittens scatter when I open the door and the mother has never let me touch her. I would get her spayed if I could trap her, and the kittens. Also, I have seen a Tom mounting her. Could she be pregnant again?

Sherry, Thanks for reaching out. How can I call her, and how soon after her heat can I have her spayed? My cat is in heat now. She is in an apartment on a very high floor, so no chance of seeing a tomcat.

What is the best way to calm her over the next few heat cycles? I have yet to spay my year old female. So I try to distract her with her fav chase games in the hope of making her tired. But it also makes me tired myself! I can only play for so long till she gets disinterested. Just so I and the nearest neighbour! I have a spirit cat. She will only allow me to touch her.

I have never been able to pick her up never mind move her from house to vet. Think it would undo all the trust I have build with here. It has taken me a year to be able to touch her. She stayed under my bed for months. What do I do… Does anyone know how to spay a spirit cat?? Hi Bobbie, Thanks for reaching out.

We suggest discussing this issue with your vet. Sincerely Kit Hi Whitney, Sorry to hear your cat got out!
