We have two male cats from the same litter (brothers). One is smaller than the other but is more dominant and outgoing. The larger cat seems more aloof and independent. The small cat is also very clingy (getting under our feet, following everywhere, etc). Anyway, This morning the larger cat got out and we didn't find him for 7 hours. When he finally showed up, he was very apprehensive but he allowed me to pick him up and bring him back in the house. Suddenly, his smaller brother and he acted as if they never knew each other! They were hissing and acting like strangers. They had just been playing together and grooming each other that very morning! Is it possible for a young cat (these guys are about 6 months old) to become feral in such a short time? I can't understand the larger cat doesn't recognize any of his smells he has marked around the house! and why he doesn't recognize his own brother?! This is very baffling. It's been 12 hours now and they are still hissing and trying to fight each other. (The smaller cat has now become more aggressive in response to his brother's not recognizing him). What's the deal?
