    Maybe if its only been a short time since being spayed, but if she's been spayed for more then 6 months, then the males should not still go after her. Its a SLIM chance she could have had a piece of ovarian cells left that causes her to exhibit signs of heat that a male could mistake.

    They shouldn't. Once she is fixed she no longer gives off the scent that lets other cats know she's ready to be bred with.

    Not for breeding, but cats - even when neutered and spayed - can be very territorial, and any unneutered males in your area will chase her out of "their" territory. If you have a multi-cat household, and the males are neutered, they will not likely go after her at all.

    Sometimes even a spayed cat (or dog) can give of a smell that attracts males. Assuming the vet has done his job correctly!! In dogs, the smell of inpacted anal glands will attract a male - might be similar with cats. Or with any other problem the female cat might have. Hopefully this won't happen.

    No, because she will not come into heat and give off the smell of wanting to mate.

    yes, male cats still react, even if castrated.

    female cats react, even if neutered.

    the instinct to be a cat is exciting to a cat.
