Mango and her Mom just contacted us! Mango's mom is sounding a little sad. She's been coping with alot.
Mango is now a year old! The bad news is that because she is high risk, a spay is not recommended, but she is going in and out of heat, and is miserable and making everyone else so, too. Can anyone suggest a way to help?
Please, everyone, reach out to Mango and her mom...she sounds so sad, and we have all been there...
love and light,

We're sorry about Mango. I wish we new what to recommend, but we'll see if we can find out any info. Purrs to Mango and her Mom!
Here are a few tips I found:
Help keep the cat busy. Cats in heat appear to have extra energy that can be assuaged with playful distractions. Provide your cat with new toys, preferably ones that will inspire her to jump toward or run after them.
Calm your cat. The simplest way to calm a cat in heat is to devote extra physical attention to her. Petting, brushing and cuddling your cat will help satisfy her craving for sensory stimulation.
Seek assistance from a veterinarian. Your cat's veterinarian can inject her with hormones or other medication that will prevent her from having a cycle.
**I'm not sure if vets still do injections because I read on another site that they don't, but it is a good idea to ask**
Cats who go in and out of heat is more prone to cancers and uterine infections. Maybe she could get an opinion from another vet. I also read that some vets do laser surgery for cat spays - maybe that would be an option for Mango.
Keeping her in our purrs!
We are always purring for our sweet friend she is so cute and she has an very special Mom....
The only thing we can think of is "RESCUE REMEDY" it is natural and hopefully will calm her down some...
Yes I would check into other options! We hate to see a sweet cat be in risk for cancers especially breast cancer.
Thanks for letting us know
Thank you for letting us know about little Mango. That must be hard on both Mango and her mom. Purrs for them! We don't have any ideas, but there are some good ideas here. Perhaps a Collar Collar? Hopefully as Mango gets stronger she will be able to have a spay surgery done.
