Why is my female cat in heat?

Female cats go into heat as a way to attract mates. They go through periodic reproductive cycles, and when a female is in this condition it will want to mate extremely badly, often doing anything it can to get outside and attract a male. A cat's reproductive system is different from people's, and they generally only attempt to mate frequently during "breeding season" which is whenever it is warmer. This can vary dramatically based on where you live and what the climate is like, or even based on the temperature of your house, which can trick the cat's system.
