    If a female cat is in/on heat, she is in her fertile period and wants to mate.

    Can this phrase also be used for a girl?

    No, for two reasons:

    1. It would be very impolite.

    2. It's just not true because a girl/woman is always ready to mate, at least from the point of view of their bodies! The mind? Now that's another story!

    If you said something like; "Sally is on heat!" This would be very impolite because it would suggest she spent her life chasing men.
