I have a 5 month old kitten, she will be getting spayed (hopefully) in the middle of December if she weighs enough.

The past two days she's been NUTS.
She runs crazily around and attacks everything, feet, hands, face, bags, furniture, etc. She meows and howls for no reason. She even 'growls' almost and pants like a dog!

She's still using the litter box, eating properly and being affectionate at times.
But is she in heat? What else could be wrong? She's going nuts!

It sounds like she's in heat. Unless she is the littlest cat ever at five months, she should have weighed enough between 2-3 months of age to be spayed. If she's allowed outside she may get pregnant by another male in the neighborhood. Is there anyway, you can take her to the vet sooner to get spayed?

Well, I planned to call Monday to see if we could get her in in the middle of December, which is only 2 weeks away.
She's an indoor cat, so I am not worried about her being preggo.

I was told by the vet and the Humane Society that the kitty had to weigh 6lbs before getting spayed. She weighed in at 3.2lbs the last time we were there (Nov 6th).

6 lbs? That is a lot. Some of my cats didn't weigh that much until they were full grown. At 5 months old unless she is a really tiny cat she should be big enough. I have had several done at 4 months old.

I know in Ontario they will not fix a cat until their 6mths old but that sounds like a lot for a cat to weigh.

One of my old cats who has passed away was the runt of he litter and only weighed 5lbs her whole life.

You should get a second opinion.

Kittens have to weigh at least 3 lbs. before being spayed/neutered...however, this would be up to your vet. My Abby weighed 3.8 pounds and she is 5 months old. (I think she is the 'runt' of the litter)

Your cat sounds like it is in heat, and therefore can not get spayed until her heat cycle is done and over with. Good luck

Well, she is almost 6 months old. From what I've heard from other people, cats usually howl and stuff when in heat? I dunno. She doesn't howl constantly, she is fine when she is in her 'bedroom' (washroom, overnight). She only does it when we are around.
She is fond of attacking things now .. maybe it's just a 'tomcat phase'.

Oh, and I live in Ontario
