awwwww ya mine went through this when I brought the kitten in and I did the towel thing and also got da bird(toy) and played with both in same room...distancing the toy in some ways but letting each kitty have time to touch bite lick on it and gave it to the other cat. all is well now :) they play and hang out but it took over a month.

Maybe if you get a felway difuser that would help. Also, rub Mamma with a towel and then rub the kittens so they'll have her scent on them. Good luck!

All mother cats distance them self from there babies and a declawed cat goes to some trauma We adopted a declawed male cat 7 years ago and he still tries to scratch.

I am not pussyfooting around. :)

That is totally normal. Her babies "smell" different now. My cats go through that whenever one has an extended stay with the vet. She should go back to normal soon.

Hi everyone,

I have a six cat family (two adult males, an adult female and three of her kittens, two males and a female who are now six months old).

I took the three kittens to be fixed and declawed and brought them home yesterday. The mother cat has been aggressive towards the kittens...batting at them, "growling" at them, not letting them sit hear her. She is even "out of sorts" with me since I brought them home. I've also seen her swatting at the big males (who are so laid back, they could care less).

The momma cat had two extended vet stays earlier this summer (one due to illness and the other when she was fixed and declawed). Each time when she came home the "family" was fine, there was no aggression, no figuring out the pecking order, just life as usual.

Does anyone have any ideas why she is acting this way? Did she "forget" her kittens? Is she re-establishing the hierarchy? Will this phase end quickly?

It hasn't even been 24 hours, but watching her bat at her babies and scowl at them makes me upset.
