I have 2 cats one female one male both fixed they are 3 years old they are indoor only and we have had them since they were kittens, about 3 days ago we couldnt find one of the cats and after looking around found her in the closet, so we got her out of the closet closed the door and she ran under the bed and was under there all night, the next day she came out for food then went right back under, later that day we took her out and brought her on the couch where she would growl at us, she didnt try to bite but while we petted her she would be growling though she looked like she was fine with being petted, she has never done this before. so later that night she slept on the bed with us and when i woke up she was back udner the bed, we went away that night for a trip and had a friend stay here and he said she stayed under all night except to come out to eat, we come back from the trip and find her still under the bed, and we take her out again onto the couch and she does the same thign with growling at us. WE can't tell if the male cat has gotten her mad or if hes just courious over her behavior because she was staring at him and growling but also seemed to when he wasnt around, she doesnt seem sick, doesnt have any marks on her body at all. does anyone have any ideas?? can a female cat go into heat evern after being fixed?? Its the weekend so our vet isnt in and we don't have much money and I can't afford thier emergency rates unless aboulsuty necessary does anyone know please please let me know

I found a link regarding cats going into heat after being spayed..this is all the info that was about it..

It is not uncommon to have a female cat go into a false heat after being spayed. Frequently, there is small amount of uterus or ovary material leftover from the surgery causing the production of hormones to simulate a heat cycle. However, the cat cannot get pregnant because the uterus and ovaries were removed. Common treatment for this problem is to have an exploratory surgery to remove leftover pieces.
With any sudden onset of estrus symptoms and behavioral changes in a spayed female you may want to consider a horomonal imbalance. Any behavioral changes can be an indication of illness. Our recommendation is to take your cat to the vet as soon as possible to have a complete check-up. You would want to rule out any cancerous or tumor development causing a hormonal imbalance.

Maybe something spooked her one day and she is taking it on out on the nearest person/cat. My cats did that once when they both saw a cat outside, freaked, got mad at each other and hissed for a few days then went back to normal. 8)

A female in heat would want all the attention it could get, so I don't think this is a false pregnancy. I'm concerned about the growling and isolation, though. Is she eating and drinking normally? I know how difficult it is when money is short, but I strongly recommend that you take her to a vet as soon as you can.

Ditto what everyone said, a vet visit is in order, the growling and hiding are usually signs that the cat is sick and feeling bad. Since it's already after the weekend, hopefully you've already gone to a regular vet. Keep us posted.
