    Not sure if these are connected but Megan has been on Metacam for about 2 months and the last week or 2 she has shown aggression on 3 occasions, twice towards the cat and once with Matt - all 3 times when food was involved.

    When we had Megan we already had Tilly (cat) and we brought them up so we could feed them at the same time, and Megan has never shown any aggression towards her before, infact Tilly is clearly the boss and Megan always seemed to respect that.

    I don't know if it's anything to do with the Metacam but it just seems strange that she's suddenly starting to behave like this after 4 years.

    Any thoughts/ideas? Thanks.

    pehaps now that the discomfort is aided with the help of anti inflamatories she feels more confident and able to assert her dominance?
    Before maybe she would have liked to but because of the problems with her hips she felt that she wasnt able to?

    Good point. I hadn't thought of it that way.
