My cat bubba used to be really friendly until I had her speyed, she is now a completely different cat. She was pregnant when she was speyed. No one can pick her up now, she growls and turns on us sometimes when we try to pat her, flying at us with claws sticking out, she got my mums lip once, ha.
She has a toy rat, ever since her operation, she now carries the rat around the house and cries, sometimes hiding it in the wardrobe, where she likes to look, it's as if she is looking for her kittens that she never had. She is a lovely cat, but we'd like to be able to cuddle her sometimes, I think she may have a hormonal problem.
