Don't know what to do !
I have 2 kitties which I introduced here when they first came to live with us.
Yoshi was very shy at first Mika not so much....I am very close to them...with talking and petting..etc. Yoshi comes every night as soon as I get into bed to snuggle and 'knead' after the night goes on he will go back to find his brother. He is always close friendly and sweet.When I am on computer he always jumps up and watches....
About an hour ago I was in the kitchen cleaning after meals and I had a table knife which I smacked against the sink in order to flip off a crumb before loading into the dishwasher.
As I rose my hand with the tableknife I did not know Yoshi had jumped onto the counter directly behind me and it hit him on the nose tip....he startled and jumped off...I went to him but no dice...he runs if i come into the room...he went to the kitchen to eat and when he saw me as I walked in and jumped really jumped quickly to get away from me ~ I feel awful.....in the meantime he hid in the closet......now i don't know where he is although his brother will find him...I am agonizing here...help ! and thank you ~
Hi, I empathize with you because I have found similar situations with my cats at different times. An accidental kick when I walk into a room and don't see one of the cats, stepping on the end of a tail when one of them gets around my feet unseen...the list goes on.
It has been my experience that a cat will take its time watching you and deciding if you are still punishing them for something. Since they don't speak...you do the talking. Just speak to the cat in the normal comforting tone that they are accustomed to hearing and let them make the move to rejoin the comfort of your company.
Although they sometimes take their sweet time, they do come around and return to normal. I have one cat that runs under the sofa when I enter the room after I've dared to take her to the vet. She returns to normal just being left alone and making sure she has her dinner plate full (its empty in the morning). Sometimes she takes a week to forgive me.
As long as your cat wasn't injured then things should be back to normal soon. Hope its back to normal now, since I missed the note for a few days.
