here bc after spaying sibling hissing

our 5 month old kitties were spayed and neutered. Our girl kitty Cocomia had to go back to the vet to be restitched bc she licked open here stitches!!! Now she has the ecollar.
its been 6 days, and every day her brother Tino keeps hissing and growling and even attacking her!!!
I've rubbed tinos scent on her and vice versa. Covered them both in wet food mixed with water. I've even had him spend the night in cocomia's room she's been healing in.
Tino is very loving, lap kitty style, and they were inseperable before!!!!!

everyone elses post says it just takes a couple days but its been almost a week and Tino still hisses at his sister.

she had an injection of antibiotics that lasts in her system up to 14 days... Would that be it?!

any ideas?!?!?!

thanks!!!!

Was there hissing before the ecollar? I don't see why it would be the abx.

I would keep them separated until the collar comes off! They'll make up for lost time once all the meds and collar stuff is a memory.

thanks guys. Collar was off yesterday for an hour. Tino still hissed after her licking session. Collar is off for good now so I'm hoping after a few hours she really won't smell like the collar.

tried the tuna juice trick. And still exchanging their blankets every day!!! And Tino still hisses!!!
I thought it was the cone. But the cone has been gone for over a day!!
Cocomia has cleaned everywhere on her body.,,

do you think the antibiotics that are supposed to last in her bloodstream for up to two weeks is excreting thru her saliva and making her smell funny?~?

ahh

I'd like to say that the behavior CocoMia and Tino experienced during that trying time is still affecting them to this day. If we take them outside and they smell our neighbors cat, they HISS and FIGHT at each other. They cool down after a few minutes but they both become VERY stressed out! That long stressful month changed their behavior until even now which is over 2 years later.

HINT: If your sibling kitties are fighting after a pet visit, SEPARATE THEM IMMEDIATELY! Keep them separated until the the injured kitty is completely healed/healthy.
I wish I could have gone back in time and kept them separate until I knew Coco was completely healed.

Good luck all.

Usually the cats are okay after a few hours or a couple days at most after a vet visit.

If this was me, I wouldn't take my cats outside, not worth the stress.

That is interesting to read, and well worth remembering. I'd never have expected such longterm antagonism. Although... many years ago we did have a cat that spooked over the scent of a human wound/infection and was never the same towards that person again. I guess it's just how it hits the person (or cat). For sure it's a gut-level response. Sorry it went wrong with your two.
