Q. My female cat seems depressed since I brought home my male kitten from being neutered yesterday. She is sleeping alot.

A. It is possible she was/is upset or disturbed by the unusual odors on your male kitten from the veterinarian's office. Or she was content to be an solo cat. Unless her depression persists more than a day or two, she stops eating or using the litter box, or other symptoms develop such as vomiting, diarrhea, fever, she is probably fine and should get over it. If any of the symptoms mentioned develop, her depression may be unrelated to your male kitten's return, and a trip to the vet is warranted.
