I was in the shower this morning when I heard a loud meow. By the time I got out everything looked normal - Freckles was on the couch and Bob was at the bathroom door. I sat on the couch, and then Bob jumped up and started smothering Freckles. There was no growling or hissing, and Bob would also start licking Freckles. Yet Freckles seemed really uncomfortable. Bob gets quite hyper in the mornings, but this is the first time anything like this has happened. I separated them for the day (Freckles in the bedroom, where he has a litterbox and food) but I'm quite worried. If Bob truly is aggressive then one of them will have to go. They would both be very hard to place for different reasons - Bob because he was found among ferals and most people won't put up with some of the associated behaviors and Freckles because he's an older cat. I'm now paranoid about going on vacation next week and having someone in my family check on them once a day. I really think I need to board them at the vets office. Anyone have any suggestions?
