I have 2 Bengals that I got spayed on Wednesday 31st May together at vet. They are sisters and have been together always. They sleep together and play. I have never ever heard them hiss or fight; they are so loving. I am feeling very sad. One sister lashed out on the way home from the vet's. It seems online that this is normal particularly if only one pet has been to vet due to smell. They went together. As they have open wounds I kept them separate and tried to reintroduce them over the past week. But one keeps attacking the other one, hissing through glass when put together, actually attacking. They are loving with me, wanting hugs, yet I'm the one that is putting cones on their heads and giving them medicine. I've tried getting one to sit on their blanket and then the other to transfer smells. I can't leave them alone together. I've tried it 3 times, but one is violent with the other and their wounds are still open from the operation. I hate seeing these 2 close buddies like this. My apologies for the long post, but I need some suggestions please.
I know this can be very upsetting but from all appearances it will go away but it may take longer than some people say.
here is a very good site to check out:
This is common. Cats recognize each other by smell. Since they went to the vet, they were both introduced to different smells and they may not smell the same to each other. You can try to keep them separate and reintroduce slowly. You can also try wiping each one down with a baby wipe. With time they will get to recognize each other by smell again and will get along better.
