I Went Away For A Month And Now My Cat Is Afraid Of Me
Hello! When I scanned the Behavior section for a solution to my problem my search came up with nothing useful for my situation. Because of an illness in my family I was forced to be away from home for about a month. My son came over and took care of my cats while I was away so they always had plenty of food and water. The day I came back 2 of my cats welcomed me home without any issues. My third cat, however, ran away and didn't come back for about a week. Now he hides under the house and ever time he sees me he runs. I had this little guy since he was a kitten and he's almost 2 now. Could he be angry at me? Do animals forget people after awhile? My son said he could never pet him because he ran from him too. He used to be such a lovable little guy and was constantly with me before I went away. Any advice on how to win back his affections?
