days of bad moods

i have a 2 year old, she has been always very loving. Then one day her whole behaviour changed, she has days where she just paces about and growls at the other cats,only stays out for about 5 mins. Growls if i go to pick her up. still comes over and wants to sit on your lap, but soon as another cat walks in she jumps down and has the hump, but has days where she plays with the other cats. I have lapsed on the flea and worming, and the people next door have a cat that is a bully, maybe they had a bad fight and its made her a bit grumpy and nervous.

There are a couple of things to think about:
1-is she sensitive when YOU touch her? call the vet
2-She could be stressed by the other cats. If she is, here's what helped with my kitties: a) put scratching posts near windows/doors. (my kitties pawed the wall to leave a scent to let other cats know who's boss, but the scratching posts solved that issue). b) lots of play works off aggression and creates more of a bond c) feliway: it's a synthetic hormone scent that makes any cat feel like their territory is marked and calms them. i like the plug-ins because they last 4 weeks. amazon sells at reasonable price. the spray works, but you have to spray (wherever) every day for 4 weeks.
3-if not, call the vet. watch if she eats/drinks/goes to the bathroom regularly.
