How can I maintain sanity while I await my horny cat's vet appointment?

My adolescent kitten is in heat. Unfortunately, it's not quite hot enough to melt my eardrums, so both of us suffer while she stands next to the front door and yowls in vain for tomcat dick. She seems as miserable as she's making me. Unfortunately, her appointment to get fixed isn't til Wednesday. Is there anything I can do to make her less screetchy in the meantime?

Miss Million-Dollar Kitty, on her second life

I took a year-old semi-feral cat from our small local colony to the feral sterilization clinic to be spayed on Thursday (3 days ago). She nearly died, but survived a second round of surgery that night. She's healing, per both her vets, although is still uninterested in food or water. Also, she likes the effect of her pain relief but won't let me give it to her. Suggestions? [more inside]
