Hi all, I’m hoping someone can help or share some advice. We have an 8 month old male kitten (who we’ve had since 3 months old) who has been neutered 2 weeks ago and returned home with a small cone. As soon as our 9 year old female cat saw him she was completely spooked by him, hissing and just really scared. We kept them separate to allow the kitten to recover and allow our cat to relax and assumed the collar freaked her out and that things would return to normal once the collar was removed. since then, our cat has been desperate to get out of the house, constantly meowing, looking for escape routes and seeming distressed. Before we would say She was an 80% an indoor cat but would have an occasional 30 min wander in the day but always wanted to return and loves being indoors. Now she won’t come inside unless we carry her in or lure her with food but even then once she’s in she’s meowing and desperate to get back out. We feel horrible as she sounds distressed but with the cold weather and her wanting to stay outside overnight we’re not sure what we are best to do? When she is outside she always seems to just stay to the front garden and doesn’t go far however, we’d find her sitting by the door as if she wants in but then will run off as soon as we open the door. Has anyone experienced anything similar before or has any advice on how we can best help our cats? Thank you in advance!
