    Its when a cat that is not spayed is mature and she is ready to mate with a tom cat.  Heat cycles last about a week at a time and can occur every 3-4 weeks until she is bred or she is spayed.  Best to have kittens spayed/neutered by 4 months old to avoid unwanted kittens in the future.

    It means that a female cat who has not been spayed is seeking another cat, a male, to mate with and have kittens,they can come into heat from about 4 months old, they have a small discharge of blood and send out a special scent to attract a male, male cats who have not been neutered can small the female cat from up to a mile away, so unless you want to be up to your ears in kittens you should have a female cat spayed, and a male cat neutered.

    It means the cat is in estrus, or her fertile period, and exhibits unusually affectionate behavior as well as a lot meowing until she finds a male to impregnate her.  "Horny as a cat in heat," is a common expression.
