Cat acting different

by Stacy

My cat is about 7 months old, she never really meows unless we get the cat food out and about to feed her. Otherwise she is quiet. Well here recently she is meowing all night long and randomly when she is laying down, but instead of laying down she is lifting her butt slightly (about 1-2 inches high) and she is kneading her back feet back and forth while doing a half meow. Then she will be rolling back and forth on her back ( like a dog would do) doing the same half meow.

I don't know if this is her just being silly or if there is something wrong. Yesterday she did puke a little bit of undigested food. I recently changed her cat food because the store was out of her regular one I had always bought her.

I wanted to add these things just in case they were needed:

I also have her on antibiotics since she has a sinus infection since birth and she has been on this for about a little over a month now so I don't think it is a reaction to this since she started doing this new thing a few nights ago. She also has medicine for her ears that I give her for 3 days every 10 days because of ear mites that she got from her mother. I started this too a little over a month ago.

Thank you in advance.

Answer from Kate
Is she spayed? I say this because she is at the right age for her to go into her first heat.

If she is spayed then she may be reacting to her ear infection etc ie be in some discomfort. However it really does sound like behavior related to being in heat.

best wishes Kate
