Question by Brian: Why would my younger cat start hating my older cat after the older one ran away for a half a day?
I have 2 female cats, neither spayed. The older cat ran out of the house for about 12 hours. She came home and now my other cat won’t have anything to do with her. Including eat from the same bowl or be in the same room. Why is this? Will my house ever be back to normal?

While you cat was out, she probably picked up unfamiliar scents and other things that you other cat may not like or be familiar with. What I would suggest you do is try to give your cat that got out a bath and don’t force them to go together because that could lead to fights. So i would just give her a bath and make sure she stays inside and hopefully, your other cat will come around, and your house will be back to normal. Good Luck.
