Mother cat always attacks her kitten?
Asked by TheFamily T | 1 Answer
My cat had 7 kittens back in April, we sold them all and 1 got returned as they already had a cat and their cat didnt like our kitten. So we decided to keep her. I got the mother cat spayed. Now the mother cat always hisses and growls whenever she see's her kitten. She will try and attack her whenever shes in sight. The kitten has got hurt sometimes but she runs away from her mum but she tries to say hello sometimes but her mum just wont let her near her. Is it because she went to a different home and came back with a different smell? What can i do to help them get along again? i dont know why the mother cat is acting like this towards her kitten. She also gets very stressed out if we go and stroke her. she growls and lashes out her claws. She doesnt do this all the time to us, when her kitten isnt near she will be really nice but as soon as her kitten is close she gets very angry. Why does she act like this towards her kitten?
