Has this ever happened to you? You bring Tiger in for his annual exam, but when you get home and let him out of his carrier, your other cat Fluffy suddenly hisses, growls and swats at Tiger. Normally they’re best friends! And they were just snuggled up together two hours ago! Now they don’t even know each other. What happened? This sudden aggression between cats in their own household is actually quite common.
Veterinary behaviorists call this phenomenon “Non-Recognition Aggression.” Whether this is labeled as a type of “territorial” or “redirected” aggression, all you know is that your cats now can’t be left alone. But let’s try to understand why this occurs, and what we can do to keep the peace in our 4-legged families.
