Hi, cat has recently started hissing & growling! Help?

I have had a cat for about 2 years, Luna. We had another cat at one time, who has since passed away. About 6 months ago another new kitten showed up needing a home. Of course, we took her in Anyways, they've gotten along most of the time. Luna, was at one time, indoor/outdoor, but now strictly indoor because of dangerous situations, and the other kitty is strictly indoor too.

Anyways, recently, she's been growling & hissing when my husband goes out to feed the horse because she wants to go out & she's mad at me for being the one to not want her to go out. Is that typical for a cat to hiss & growl just because of that? I had always heard that hissing & growling meant more about health issues?

Might sound like a stupid question but this just started within the last month. She's always been interested in wanting to go back out but she's never acted out like this.

Is your kitten spayed? If not, she may be close to coming into heat and your older cat is upset by this, and wants to go outside now. If she's not spayed, get her spayed as soon as possible, because if she does come into heat she will start spraying urine in the house, or urinating in places other than the litter box.
On the other hand, yes some cats growl and hiss when they are displeased about something they want and can't have and/or can't do. They're just mouthing off their annoyance.
