    Hello everyone. I have some questions that I hope you can answer with you experience as google has not given me sufficient answers.
    So, do females continue calling and generally being horny after the male has mated with them? If so for how long has it lasted for you guys? Second, is the vigorous rolling the female does after the male has mounted her signs of successful mating or fertilization? Or is it not necessarily that way?
    Thank you for your time!

    There is no evidence that mating shortens the length of oestrus despite that it is often claimed to do so.

    The vigorous rolling, etc, is inevitably a sign of ovulation. You have to bear in mind that females can ovulate without penetration.

    With some females it seems to shorten the heat cycle, with others it doesn't appear to make a difference
