Our two kittys have been with us 5 years. When the momma adopted us, we elected to keep her and one of her kittens. Now the "baby" is five years old. For all this time, they have been well behaved. They have always cuddled together on their chairs, window shelves and in their baskets. The momma is a tabby and her daughter looks like a Maine Coon. When we took the baby to the vet this week, we decided to have her shaved since her fur was becoming matted. She was anesthetized for the procedure and came home woozy, looking like a miniature lion. The unintended consequence is that momma kitty doesn't recognize her and hisses and growls at her. Momma won't have anything to do with her; won't let the baby near her. This upsets everybody and the "baby" doesn't understand why her mother is acting like this. Does anybody have any advice for reconciliation? We've tried bringing them together while holding them, but so far that hasn't worked. Help!
