Cranky cats

We have 4 female cats which are all sisters and had them since birth.They will be a year old in couple of weeks. We took the last female to be spayed and when we brought her home 2 of the other females are hissing at her like they don't know her. One of the 2 is literally going at her chasing,swatting and hissing. But also she is hissing and swatting at everyone and everything in the house. Is she acting like this cause the female cat that just came back from the vets might of picked up other odors from the Vet's office? She was going around doing like a snorting, snuffing sound too.

Yes...when they pick up different smells at the vets, they lose their recognizable smells and 'become a different kitty'. You can help alleviate the problem by taking a towel and rubbing it on all of the kitties that stayed home, then on the one that was spayed...and then again on the stay at home kitties. This will intermingle all their smells. You can also put a drop of vanilla extract on the back of all their necks. I'd do both...

Edit to add: It may take a day or two to calm down, even if you do what I recommended.

Welcome to the forum, we'd love to hear about your kitties and you in the Say Meow would be great too!
