Mother cat fighting with her son
Our mother cat had litter of five. We found homes for four,and kept a male kitten. as he grew his mother groomed him the usual cat stuff.When he was old enough we had them both fixed,after that she has done nothing but pick on him hissing biting scratching,can you help?
So they are now both spayed / neutered. If they were fixed recently it could be that the hormone levels has still not dropped, as this can take several weeks to a month after the operation.
Also the operation etc may have caused the female cat to become afraid in which case she could be displaying something called aggression truama described herecat-aggression-trauma.html
In either case it would be a good idea to give the cats a time out from each other for a few days and then to go through a reintroduction period to try and regain their confidence in each other.
If the behavior continues after that then you may want to try some cat calming sprays or medication for a period of time until things settle downscared-cat.html
