    Kitties do not like kitties. They'll fight. She has the right not to share her home with another kitty. So, my advice is don't.

    We have 2 fixed cats. The only time I see them get along is when there is rain with thunder and lightning (both sit under bed quietly without killing each other) or when we were moving to a new place (cats were placed in individual carriers with no problem, release also went smooth untill they established who lives where).

    .

    Oh... also when I vacuum the floors, lol

    Play time can be bonding if the dominant cat is tired and caress less about the toy.

    Spay her asap BEFORE you consider bringing in a new kitten.  I suggest a young neutered male (about 3-4 months old) rather then bring in another female.  Females tend to be more territorial with another female. 

    You will need separate feeding bowls, water bowls and 2 more litter pans.

    Have the cat spayed before any other cat comes into the house, and just a thought, cats like to be the only cat in the house.

      Cats really like to have a friend to play with - a few may want to be "only" cats, but most don't.

    Get Pumpkin spayed, and then bring the other cat to the house. This will make it simpler and less likelihood of issues. There are plenty of needy cats, so there will be a lovely one at that point. Introduce with new cat in the bathroom for at least two weeks. Provide two to three litter boxes for two cats.

    Unspayed female cats can be rather vicious and she may attack another cat. I would not take this chance.

    Inappropriate urination is a behavioural issue, or possibly infection, it is not a sign or symptom of being "in heat".

    Make sure your cats, all of them, are desexed.  I believe you call it neutered, speyed over there.  Make.  sure.  

    Introduce your cats gently, under the advice of a behavouralist preferably,  to ensure a gentle and kind introduction and that should remove any stress and desire for either of them to mark their territory around your house.

    Short answer, No - she will not mark due to being "in heat".

    Cats don't pee everywhere when they are in heat, cats pee everywhere because they don't like where their litter tray is placed or they are anxious

      Some females in heat DO pee worse then a tom cat spraying.  They will mark just like a male does when in heat.

    Get her fixed, healed up, THEN get another kitten/cat. Even then, there is no guarantee that she won't mark, but it's not as common in females to mark. This is more of a male thing. But better safe than sorry.

    Just get her spayed first. she'll be fine. get the other cat fixed too. I've always done it that way, and never had a problem. also make sure they have places to retreat to. buy cat shelves. they like to be high up.
