Ask the Vet: 我們較年老的貓死後，年輕一點那隻貓的性格好像變了。為甚麼？| Since our older cat died recently our younger cat seems to have a new personality. Why is that?
Q&A with Dr Pauline Taylor, BVM&S MACVSc
DR. PAULINE SAYS: Cats can definitely change & show a different personality after another cat in the same home environment passes away. They come out of their ‘shell’ and act quite different. Their behavior changes & usually for the good. Cats, like humans, live in social groups that don’t all get along with each other. When one cat dies the one left behind can change becoming a much more sociable cat, happy without stress from a fellow feline.
