Hello everyone! I had been wondering about heat cycles too so I will take this opportunity to ask. How old are they when they have their usual first heat and second heat? I had been paying close attention to Kenya jus to make sure-she'll be 7 months on the 25th. Also, to they really have periods during this time-and what do you do to avoid the mess? I am sorry about this questions-I am just so uneducated about this so please help me.
