Re: HELP!, I gave my dog a bath, now cat is acting strange
Welcome. The reason your cat is acting like it is a different dog is because to your cat...the dog doesn't SMELL like the old one, so it must therefore be a NEW and DIFFERENT dog.
Animals recognize each other more by scent rather than sight. Rub the same towel over both pets, back and forth, back and forth to exchange their scents, or isolate them for a while until the washed dog is able to get some of the "home scent" back on her.
