The short answer is yes, but not haveperiods as humans do, as they have a different reproductive system.

Instead, they have a reproductive cycle called estrus or "heat," which is distinguished by alterations in behaviour and appearance.

Female cats may engage in behaviours including increased vocalisation, restlessness, and rubbing against things or humans while they are in estrus.

Physical indicators of female cats being in heat include a swelling vulva and a discharge.

Cats are typically spayed (have their ovaries and uterus removed) to stop them from going into heat and to stop unintended pregnancies.

For proper management of a cat's reproductive health, including spaying or neutering, it is vital to visit a veterinarian in order to prevent health problems and regulate the cat population.
