So, big cat lover here, have had a cat almost my entire life. Currently have four of the nutballs. The oldest is just big ol laid back black ball of fur that just chills all day. Second is gray tabby who is affectinate and very docile and non-aggressive. Other two are twin orange tabbies that we got maybe two years ago. All have been getting along fine.
One of the youngins snuck outside and was out a bout an hour before we found her and brought here in. Once inside she was scared and was a bit aggressive to everyone and everything. This is fine now, she seems to be back to 'normal'. I think during her time of fury though she has scared the shit out of our gray tabby and she will not leave the living room and freaks out whenever she sees any of the other cats. This went on for almost two weeks now. She has urinated on the floor twice(I think she is scared to go downstairs where the litter box is). Wife is wanting to rehome her but I want to aviod that(she is pretty much MY cat, curls up on me to sleep often, etc.)
Not sure what to do, really do not want to rehome her but not sure how long we can deal with her freak outs either.
I am TORN.
Any ideas ye olde Penny Arcadians?
