acting weird since slumber party
We adopted a tabby kitten last summer. She's a great cat, lots of personality, such as no fear of water and tipping over every half-full cup in the house. She wil soon be a year old and is still a playful young cat and has bonded very well to my middle daughter (8yrs old). Now, for the weird behavior:
My oldest daughter (11), hosted a slumber party (downstairs) the other day with ten other screaming girls- they screamed and screamed hysterically for many hours. Needless to say the cat hid as far away from them as she could, which was upstairs under my bed, for the duration, including the next morning- normal behavior from my experience, having had my own pet tabby for 19 years. However, the screaming girls are all gone now , the house is quiet again, and the cat still refuses to come downstairs- 48 hours after d-day and she still wont come back into the main levels of the house- i tried to carry her down and she shredded my arms and back. poor kitty. she only wants to stay upstairs where the bedrooms are, and won't come down for food or drink. she's already pooped under my bed and peed on my sons bed the next room over. now she is empty and still wont come down to eat, drink, or use her box. she is still spry and chipper, and will play with us when we visit her upstairs, other than a mortal fear of the rest of the house she seems back to normal- but she needs to drink and eat something and i am really hesitant to bring her any food upstairs, save for a little water. any help? we tried coaxing her with food and treats, which she seems to really want- but is deathly afraid of coming back into the main part of the house.
