Please tell us you did this? Cat owners tend to forget about this.

My Momma cat does that with her kids, too. They're grownup. She's tired of them. It's time for them to move out on their own and get their own families. Mine are all spayed and neutered, though.

A momma cat is genetically inclined to have as many litters as possible, so of course she's supposed to stop caring about them once they grown up.

I wouldn't be surprised if dogs do something similar.

Human Mama's do to. And kittens are "babies", not cats that are 6 months old. Those are teen age cats.

Veronica was a great mother until the babies grew up.
She was new to us, after adopting us, and brought us
kittens. We got em all shots and neutered and kept two.
The babies are now three and stay inside. Veronica will
fight with them when she comes in and she's not playing.
But she doesn't really wanna be in the house anyway.

Whenever she comes back or i go out to find her, i would pick her up and hug her and kiss her and be very friendly with her, she seen to enjoy it too as she didnt resist, this will only last for 15 seconds, after that she starts hissing at me, and if her children is around she will hiss more agressively. She was a stray when i adopted her and give birth to this 3 babies, so now i let her continue being stray doing what she likes. I am upset that i dont have the opportunity to love her more, and i see that my relationship with her babies has caused distance between us. I would like to ask,

1. Why is she acting that way?
2. What can i do to change this?

I would "hiss" at my babies if they never moved on. She wants to be an only cat. Her job at being a "Mama" is done. It will all sort itself out.

I'm having the same issue with a feral mother cat and her 3 kittens but they have been moved into the house since it has gotten cold. Will she stop hissing/growling/swiping at them? Also I am looking for homes for them. Will there be an issue with her being this way with other cats?
