Around almost a year and a half ago, we rescued a stray kitten. It has had a good life so far, she saw the vet very recently and she is in great health and was the correct healthy weight. We like her a great deal. Unfortunately, we held off just slightly too long to get her castrated, and she fell pregnant at 6 months. She had a litter of 5 babies, four boys and one girl. No complications. All of them are healthy and noisy. The problem is that she is a very territorial cat. When she started attacking her babies, we expected it because most queens go through that to start weening the babies. The babies still try and play with her no matter how she repels them. However, she is now getting aggressive towards everything, even the touch of us. Suggesting that she is very stressed out by her children being around. And now she has stopped coming home. She leaves for days and is noticeably losing weight because she doesn't like that these babies are always around her home. We have taken her to the vet, he said she is physically healthy. The babies are around 4 months old now and they are still clustering around the house and not leaving any space for the mother to relax out there. We need advice about this because we're concerned about her weight loss or that she might just stop coming back all together.
