Is it normal for my female cat to hiss and growl at her offspring starting the day she got spayed?

    If her offspring are weaned, she may see them as rivals. This sounds strange, but if she was spayed after her litter was weaned, she may see them as potential rivals to her mating. Hormones are strange things. She may still have enough of them in her bloodstream. She does not see her kittens as her children but as rivals for the affection of a male. It takes a while for those hormones to leave her system. Keep her separate from her kittens for at least a week and after that, things should be OK. And make sure you have the kittens spayed/neutered as well.
