Well yes it could be because she is in heat. Cats use their urine as scent markers and during heat they feel the need to scent more often, even females.

Why she did it on you cannot be absolutely known however as she feels safe with you and knows your scent, cats will often want to add their scent to places they feel most secure. Its not them being nasty it is purely a cat instinct.

I would recommend that you should have her spayed sooner rather than later. This will help to stop this behavior as well as preventing pregnancy.

best wishes Kate
