My cat has been spayed this week, and she was 2 weeks pregnant when the surgery was performed. I can see sadness in my kitty's eyes. She is 2 years old, has had two litters of kittens, and now seems to know this part of her life is gone now. Would a spayed female cat get any fulfillment from keeping at least a couple of her last kittens with her long-term? Or does the mother just get tired of having her babies around her after they get grown? Is there a "boot the babies out of the nest" tendency in cats, or do they want to stay together for life? Sometimes she appears to be chasing the kittens away, hissing as if to say "Get your own place to stay!" I can't tell if she wants them to grow up and leave home, or just stop trying to nurse. Also, the male cat who fathered both litters of kittens is a big white muscular feral. If he were captured and neutered, would he get any less wild and stop running around so much? Or do ferals not get tamed by the surgery?
