Unhappy No cuddle bug anymore

Lizzie used to be a total cuddle bug. She would jump into my lap, sleep on me for a nap, snuggle up to me all the time, but after her spaying (3 1/2weeks ago) she has become more aloof. She had a great recovery and has completely healed.

I wonder if she would ever go back to being the cuddle bug again. Has anyone had a similar experience?

Best, Poornima

Well, Jillee seems to be the same after her spay....she cuddles when she wants to....just depends on her mood. Maybe it will just take some time....ya never know with these guys.

Mirabel went through a time where she was a lot less cuddly. As of about a month and a half ago she went back to a snuggly stage. Maybe it's an adolescent thing.

Molly was just the opposite!

Little by little, she's initiating the cuddles and the kisses more and more...I think she just had to think it was HER idea!

Cheer up Poornima - like Elaine said, it's probably the hormones and she'll settle down to your sweet loving girl before long.

I think it's the adolescent thing. Tessa is the same personality wise but I've noticed with her getting a little older she's testing me more to see if I mean it and is a little more mischievous. Just like a teen, lol. You know how teen girls don't like to cuddle but then they come back? This age and age of spay just coincides.

Actually her hormones wouldn't be in play yet unless you let her go into heat before spaying. Even then I would think she'd be less moody, not more after the spay since she wouldn't have the hormonal ups and downs.

I'm sorry to hear Lizzie is going through a less-cuddly phase and hope she can get back to her old self soon. Maybe it is not the spay, but because you have been traveling a lot lately? Keep us posted on how she is doing.

Is Benji still just as cuddly?

Hi Jane,
Benji is very cuddly now. Lizzie has definitely changed after her spay. However, last evening she was a little more like her old self. So perhaps, it is just a hormone thing and she would be back to her old self again.

Benji and Lizzie are enjoying the gorgeous weather. They run in and out of the house, lie on the deck sunning themselves. It is so lovely to see them relax and play on the deck. We all are going to miss this beautiful weather for sure.
