Love is in the air!

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Mika has been trying to find a way out into the wild world for the past 3 days. Her yowling, rolling and over-the-top affection are driving her family crazy.

Although she is only 4 months old she has come into season and could fall pregnant if she found a tomcat outside.

Cats will often start to cycle as the days get longer in August and September, even if they are barely out of kittenhood themselves.

Mika's carers have booked her in for a spey next week. Once cats start cycling they keep it up every 2-3 weeks until they fall pregnant - and Mika's owners don't want their beautiful Burmese to have motley kittens!
