Kitty being spayed - will her behaviour calm down

Hi, just wanted to ask people with experience in this area.
My 6 month old kitty is due to be spayed now, i just wondered if this will help to calm her down, at the moment she runs around like a bat out of hell.
At the moment we currently have no paint under the windowsill due to her climbing up and how ever many times we take her away she does not learn.
Recently she has started to try and demolish my OH collectable figures he has on display.
She always torments my other cat and to be honest she is just a pure fun-loving heap of energy/"i wanna destroy everything in site kind of mood".
By this i mean she has ate money and will destroy anything the second you put it down.
So wondered if spaying will calm her down or whether i have to make my house into a large padded cell .........lol

Re: Kitty being spayed - will her behaviour calm down

We had a female many moons ago like this - after spaying at a year old she eventually began to calm down (it took 6 months) - the vet said she was so hyper because of all the new hormones whizzing through her system preparing her to be a mum but he also said it could take up to 6 months for the hormones to get out of her system. I think she was used to the behaviour as well by then. She did calm down within the six months and her basic personality wasn't changed at all (still grumpy lol). I would recommend you get your cat spayed definately for this and lots of other reasons.

Good luck with repainting those window ledges!

Re: Kitty being spayed - will her behaviour calm down

I have a female kitten aged 7 months and she was spayed at begining of oct.As alot of you know on here it was touch and go as to weather or not we kept sophie as her behaviour was so bad towards my other 3 cats. But i persevered with her. Now you cant wish for a better cat.She still has her moments of chasing round but so do my others and they are 11 & 2. It has calmed her down totally to the point were her and snowy love each other sleep together play together & eat together. Before she was spayed snowy hated her and would run and hide. Roony still has his moments with her but they will play outside together. Patsy tolerates her but she is old now. Hopefully having your kitten spayed will have the same affect as it has had on sophie

Re: Kitty being spayed - will her behaviour calm down

She's young, this is what they do when they're young. Precious collectables really need to be put out of harms way until she's older and more settled, it won't be her fault if they get broken, she's just doing what young cats do.
Spaying will help as calling cats can be incredibly manic for days at a time, and she will grow more sedate naturally as she ages.

Re: Kitty being spayed - will her behaviour calm down

I totally agree - move anything of value out of her way, even put it away until she has calmed down - and she will calm down. Don't forget she is still only a kitten and just wants to play. Everything is fun at this age.

Talking Re: Kitty being spayed - will her behaviour calm down

My kitty only calmed down the few days after being spayed (due to medication )

but she's as crazy as always.. She is around the same age as your kitty now, if not younger.. So maybe she hasn't grown out of it yet.. But I hope she doesnt.. She's so full of life!
