cat behavior after mating

Hi, my female cat just mated 2 days ago but the tom is trying to mount her so many times that she is actually trying to avoid him right now and when he tries to mount her she flattens her body on the side. furthermore, she became very tired and vomited about 3 times and doesn't eat very well. can you help me please?

the behavior you describe is normal for a tom cat to try and mate over and over again with a female cat to ensure that he has offspring. her reaction is also normal for a female who has had enough. the only thing you can do is to keep your female cat separated from the tom for the next week of so when she will stop giving off the scent of a cat in heat (if she is pregnant).

As for her vomiting and not eating, this is difficult to diagnose. this may be an unrelated problem to being in heat. My advice would be to see how she is over the next couple of days and if the sickness continues to take her to see a vet.

In the meantime make sure she has easy access to plenty of water to prevent dehydration.

best wishes kate

Hello my names is Evelyn and I'm a pretty new fur mommy I have a little one named Bagheera he's a tom. Anyways I'm here to see if you could help me out. My tom ran out of my house and mated with a stray cat. I found him hiding in the bushes filled with angel hair and scratches. My neighbor told me he heard him mating. I'm not sure tho they could of just been fighting because he had scratches on his nose and a bite on his neck. Anyhow I proceeded to bathe him since he was covered in dirt and grass. He kept licking his private part and when I bathed him I noticed he was bleeding from down there. He seemed fine at first after that I inspected him for more cuts and scratches and didn't find anymore. And now his been sleeping all day. He plops down anywhere and he refuses to eat or drink. And I've had to shake him more than twice when I wanna wake him. His usually a very light sleeper. And I also noticed his breathing is a little fast. I'm not quite sure what's going on with him. Any thought or tips. I'm concerned if his sick or just tired from his outdoors adventure. Tanks :)
