A Cat Spaying Question?

I get Cats coming my Way. Dumped here, left here like 3 in A box once! So I'm up to 13. I'm Jobless & so is my DH.! Times Are tough! But my Question is this. I had my Tiny Russian Blue look Female Spayed. She was under 2 I believe. We had her & her 2 Kittens "Fixed" the end of June! One month later she went up to 9lbs.# Now almost 2 weeks later she's close to 11lbs.#!! Her Kittens that are now 10 mos. old aren't gaining weight! She's closing in on my Fat Siamese, Stinkie who's 17 lbs.#!! Now I can't afford medical care so I can't take her in. She's Well, Healthy, Happy & Loving Life Etc.. Is this odd? This hasn't happened really before! Has it to your Cats!? Stinkie is Fat & is 12 year old! Just wondering your opinions. Thank you for any kind Replies! Mean ones not accepted! I thought maybe she thought she was Pregnant Again & its A Fasle pregnancy thing? Hey it can happen to Cats too!

  • when animals are fixed their hormones deposit fat differently...all of my cats packed on weight once they were fixed...i have a boy whose about 25lbs and he spends most of his days out side...ur kittens rnt gaining weight probably b/c they r young and more active then their mom is some cats slow down after they r fixed some cats remained very active but they still packed on the pounds...its the same with dogs to

  • Rainmommy is exactly right. I volunteer for a free clinic for spaying/neutering. It is perfectly normal for a cat to gain weight as an adult after you get them fixed. As long as she is active and healthy looking there is nothing to worry about!
