She very hostile and aggressive towards her kittens she had nine months ago. She has been spayed 4 months ago and she been very on edge and irritated. She was always a very anxious cat she was left as 3 week olds kitten in a ant bed by her mother. I raised he since then and she will be three December 18th. I house is loud because the five of us in a two bedroom house. She likes to play, lounge, and get petted on like a normal cat. She has two kittens a boy and girl who are both intact but we plan to get them fixes soon. She hisses and punches and scratches at the boy and the girl. When she is outside with her kittens she will actually play with them and they chase each other back and forth. I know my cat has issues but I can still see there my baby girl in her heart.

Thank you for using our service. It sounds like your cat may be experiencing some stress or anxiety, which can manifest as aggression towards her kittens. There are a few things you can try to help your cat feel more relaxed and comfortable in her environment:
1. Provide plenty of hiding places and vertical space for your cat to retreat to when she feels overwhelmed or threatened.
2. Ensure that your cat has access to plenty of food, water, and litter boxes.
3. Provide environmental enrichment, such as interactive toys and puzzles, to keep your cat mentally stimulated.
4. Consider using pheromone diffusers, such as Feliway, which can help to create a calming environment for your cat.
5. Consider seeking the advice of a veterinarian or a feline behavior specialist. They may be able to provide additional recommendations and, if necessary, prescribe medication to help manage your cat's anxiety.
