Heat cycle in cats normally comes in the months of spring which is the breeding season in cats. But heat cycle can come in any season. If a cat has not been spayed and if she’s around 8 months old, she will come into heat after every few moths.
When cats are in heat they tend to roll a lot on the floor. They also become quite friendly and will start to love other cats, might even start to rub herself against you. If your cat has started to do this, you should quickly find a male cat so that she can mate. Do keep in mind that the first 5 to 7 days are of heat are good for mating. You need to make sure that you know how do cats mate so that you cat gets pregnant otherwise you will have to do this all over again.

After the mating is done, the female cats pregnancy will take around 60 to 65 days. Heat cycle will keep on coming until the cat gets pregnant.

Please make sure that male cat has been properly vaccinated before he mates with your female  cat
