|This is Delyte. All of the female kitties that my person has had in her family have gone into heat before 5 months old, except for those who were fixed before that time. The 6-month time period is based on cats in the wild who are being fed by their momcats and by having to hunt their own prey. Cats who are weaned early and who are fed nutricious kitten food will grow fast and mature earlier.
She also had a female cat who died of mammary cancer and it is not a good way to go, so please get your kitty fixed.
Your vet is very behind the times in cat physiology, and I would find another vet to treat the cats for the rest of their lives. Our person's mother had a kitty who died an agonizing death from something that cats "never" get, according to the vet, when it would have been easy to diagnose and treat.
