spayed cat doesnt stay home anymore

Two weeks since i have had my cat spayed, she stopped spending time at home, she comes home maybe once every two or three to days to feed and spend time with her son otherwise im not sure where she goes to. Why is she behaving this way since we had her spayed?

Answer from Kate
i don't believe it has anything to do with her being spayed.

You haven't given me much background i.e how long have you had the cat, how many other pets you have etc. they will all play a part in what is happening.

My guess is that she may feel that her home is elsewhere if there are other cats in the home even if it is only her son. Is he neutered? If not then he may have taken dominance in the home and this has made her feel less welcome in the home and may have gone off to find another home.

This happened to me when I was a child, we had a female cat who lived happily with us for two years. then another cat moved in and within several months she gradually moved to another house down the road who were happy to keep her. She simply decided that she didn't want to live with another cat. Some cats are like this.

I wouldn't take it personally but if you do have other pets who are not neutered then this would be my first thought as to why she is spending more and more time away from home.
