For the last several nights, there has been a neighborhood cat, who's it is, I have no idea, it's not familiar to me, roaming about the backyard in the still of the night, when people are sound asleep. That is until the stupid cat starts whinning and whimpering and making all sorts of loud noises. She's apparently in heat, thus the wild and crazy sound effects.
Friday night was the absolute worst. It was off and on ALL NIGHT LONG. And it sounded as if our backyard was the only one being graced with the performance. The next few nights haven't been nearly as bad, but still enough to wake us up in the night.
I looked up online how long a cat can be in heat, and she can be in heat anywhere from 2 to 19 days! I'm hoping that for this cat, it's no where near the latter of those two numbers!
