Heat cycle stupidity

Luna is having her heat cycle and has the attention span of a gnat. Her listening capabilities are that of a 7 week old puppy. This us her first heat cycle so I guess I am to expect some craziness, but it is like she was never trained. She does want to snuggle tho but I do not let her on the bed or couch during the cycle.

Yeah Luna has to be crated at night when she is heat because those little pants they wear during their heat cycle can be easily taken during the night off -no bed. The only change i see in Luna is her intensity to be Bitchy heightens towards max then she will be flirty.

So far no aggression or bitchiness. Her biggest thing is she is scatter brain, I tried to play ball and she normally will get super excited but now she will chase it but get distracted by something easily. I have decided not to push any new training on her, just reinforce the basics, sit, a down and come.

First cycle has to be confusing, she'll get used to it. I never experienced more aggression or bitchiness, just a little more scattered and affection.

Luna has just that, needs to be touched or near you at all times, and she is very much scatter brains. I am not holding it against her.

Cava's sister just went into heat a couple of days ago, so I'm sure she will not be far behind.

It has been 8 days. I had my parents watching her and angel because me and my wife took her sisters family to Disney world. Two days in I get a call she's in heat. They dealt with her for 5 days.

I would imagine she was more stressed because you were away. Luna’s always affectionate so that would be hard for me to say especially around supper time she lays on my feet when I cook a real tripping hazard. Every heat cycle I see something a little more and more. This is Luna’s fourth heat cycle and the first time I have seen her flirty and was at the very end of her cycle. I had to tell her how beautiful she was because her efforts were thwarted by max lol!
