Nichole had her youngest cat Figaro fixed and declawed about a week to 10 days ago. (just front claws) Before she went off to the vets, Figaro and Nichole's other cat Cassie got along just fine. But from the moment Figaro returned from the vet, Cassie can't seem to stand her. She stalks and attacks whenever Figaro ventures out from a hiding place. It's not playing. Poor Figaro has taken to peeing in Nichole's potted plants because Cassie stalks her and attacks when she tries to use the litter box. Figaro has lost weight because Cassie won't let her eat. This is in no way shape or form normal behavior for Cassie. We figured it would stop once Figaro felt up to snuff again and would fight back. Well, she's not fighting back........she runs and hides. Nichole went and got her some soft food hoping she could eat it faster, before Cassie could stalk and attack. Me, being a cat person......*cough cough cough* I told her to lock Cassie up in the bedroom and give poor Figaro a break. But this can't go on forever, and Cassie is showing no signs of stopping. It did hit me tonight while talking to her that perhaps Figaro now smells like the vets office, not a good memory for Cassie by a long shot, and no longer smells like the Figaro she knows. So I told her to snatch up something Cassie has been sleeping on and make sure to rub it all over Figaro to see if that helps. (they used to snuggle together all the time) I remember easy child having the issue with she had Simba and Tom declawed and fixed. Jerry was less than please to see either of them and let it be known. But it didn't seem to go on as long. Which makes me wonder if it really is the strange scent of the vets office, antiseptic ect that is the culprit. As Jerry did this when Simba was outside for months and came home and easy child tried to bring him back inside. Didn't last as long though. So, ideas? Cuz this is driving her crazy. And poor Figaro just went through the trauma of surgery only to have her best friend turn on her.
