My cat was recently spayed but the male cats still want to mate with her

Our question this week was:

I had my cat fixed in January 2008. Just this week the male cats started coming around again. They want to mate with her and she doesn't seem to mind. Is this normal? Is there something else wrong? Please help.

Thanks,

Michele Janecka


Answer

Hi Michele – thanks for your email. You wrote that you had your female cat spayed about a month ago and male cats are interested in mating.

This can be normal. It can take a while (sometimes 4 to 6 weeks) for the hormones to leave her system. Males may still be interested in her but this should dissipate with time. Fortunately, they can not breed her is she is spayed. I don't know your situation – but if possible, it might be worth keeping her inside where the males leave her alone for another month or so.

An article that might be helpful to you is Cats and Mating.

Best of luck!

Dr. Debra
