I have had my cat for about 6 years -- I adopted her from a shelter when she was almost 2. She is a calico and displays typical calico behavior. She is very attached to me but is not very friendly with others. She will usually hide when guests come to the house but never spits or growls or attempts to attack guests. About a month ago I fell down the stairs (the bottom 2) and fell with my cat in my arms. We didn't know it at the time but she suffered a slight concussion according to the vet. But before we took her to the vet, several days after the fall she attacked my husband in the kitchen by biting him on the leg. She chased him out of the kitchen and he had to ring the doorbell to get my attention. She got him pretty good and a month later the "bite" is still in the healing process. She has since been put on a medication by the vet to reduce the swelling in her head. However, she is extremely aggressive towards my husband now. She will not let him walk through the house without trying to stalk him, growling and trying to lunge at him. HELP!!! We have tried separating them and it doesn't work. She will tolerate him sitting on the sofa but will not accept food from him and will try to bite him when he walks around. Has anyone ever had a similar situation? I don't want to give her away but the vet said I might have to if she doesn't come to "reaccept" him again.
