We have a cat, Cleo. She used to be a loving and playful cat but that has all changed. My parents adopted 2 Maine Coon cats a few years back, one of whom has already passed away. Ever since they came home, Cleo has abandoned us and behaves really strangely. She still comes in at night and to eat occasionally, but if you acknowledge her, she growls and hisses. I try to pet her, and she arches her back and doesn't seem to mind, but growls ferociously the whole time. She has never scratched anyone, but acts like she hates us all the time. If you say her name she growls and spits. I think she still wants affection because she sometimes pauses when I call her like she is torn about the situation but I don't know how to win her back. This has been going on for about a year now and I am afraid that it may be too late for her. Sometimes I pick her up and although she makes lots of angry noises, she doesn't really struggle for the first few minutes. I don't know what to do and I really want our cat back.
