My oldest cat (14 years) grew up knowing me as a smoker. I quit for over a year, during that time she wasn't at all as close to me as she had been in the past. I thought perhaps she had just reached an age where she wanted to be left alone more.
When I failed my quit and picked the smoking habit back up, I discovered the lovable little black cat I had known for close to 5 years.
I did quit again, just about 4 years ago, now. She kept to herself a little bit, at first, but then she slowly came back around to her old self. Of course by the time she had settled with the idea that I was now a non smoker, I bring home a couple of kittens into the fam!! Surprize, B.B.! lol
Point is, like Marcia said, it has LOADS to do with scent, AND it can be the same person they have known. Scent is the key with cats. This is why they are so fastidious. Their survival depends on them being able to read and distribute, as well as eliminate scent
