cat is aggressive to other cats, is she pregnant?

by harry

would a female in the early stages of pregnancy hide from and growl and hiss and spit at our other cats

No this is not a normal reaction to being pregnant at all, especially in the early stages.

It is not until much later that her behavior may cahnge and this is generally not in an aggressive way. See my page here for more on this

Her behavior may suggest that she is afraid of them or something else has made her afraid. the other possibility is that she is not feeling well and this can often make cats react aggressively to both other animals and people.

If you can it may be an idea to look her over to make sure she does not have any bites or lumps etcs they can be hard to see sometimes.

My own cat has been rather subdued and aggressive towards his brother and we discovered a nasty abscess at the base of his tail which needed vet care. Since he has been back he is back to his old self.

Hioe your cat is ok again soon.
