I have 2 female cats, litter mates. They have been together since birth. We have a metal screen door, and sometimes leave it open. Yesterday while it was open a cat came up to smell a box I had left outside with one of my cat's pee on it (I know I shouldn't have left it there, but I can't change that now). One of my cats was squaring up to the outside cat, the other was in the middle, and then a huge fight broke out and they tried to kill each other and peed absolutely everywhere. Outside cat gave no shits until my partner went out to scare it away. They would not calm down or leave each other alone, and now we have to keep one of them in the bathroom at all times. It's been almost 24 hours. We have to put one of them in a carrier in order to switch the one out of the bathroom and the other one into the bathroom. If they see so much as a whisker of each other, they freak the **** out again, pee everywhere, hiss, spit, yowl for minutes at a time, etc. I am utterly heartbroken. Not only can I not go into my bathroom freely anymore, I got 2 cats so they could keep each other company and be companions. I have been crying pretty much since this happened. I am afraid to handle them, though they have not been aggressive to me specifically and are still rubbing my legs, asking for pets etc. They are not even the same animals anymore. They startle, hiss, and yowl at the slightest provocation. They loved each other. They used to cuddle and play and run around the house together. Our lives are all ruined. This was such a little stupid thing that I could never have imagined having this kind of an impact. I can't think of any way to solve this except giving one or both of them up. I'm so lost. Please help, any advice, similar stories that got resolved, anything at all helps.
