Default My cat has left home

For the last two months my cat has seldom come home and when she has she has been very unfriendly. I thought initially that it was due to the aquisition of two new kittens, about a month ago but I have since discovered that she has actually been living with a neighbour for much longer. Unfortunately the neighbour has been feeding her, grooming her and letting her stay the night which I am not happy about. The kittens have just aggravated the problem. I have told my neighbour that she must lock her out and stop feeding her but she has just ignored me. In desparation I have now collected my cat and locked her in the house but she is just miserable. Can anybody offer any advice as to how to sort this out. I am fussing her a lot but she is not interested.

Welcome to the forum ! Great that you finally have your baby back (God bless your heart - you're a responsible meowmy.). Her behavior is normal. From her point of view, she's jealous and angry with you, as she had been the apple of your eyes, and now there are 'intruders' who steal her meowmy from her. And your neighbor has been her comfort. Now, what you need to do is to proof to her that she doesn't need your neighbor, and she's still loved. Shower her with more attention and extra love. Treats will always help, as well as lots of patience.
She will eventually get better over time, as she realized that she's unconditionally loved.
Happy bonding ! What are her name and the the kittens names ? Any pix ?

Thanks for your advice. I will keep paying her special attention and hopefully she will come round. She was such and affectionate cat before but now she is just a grouch.

Her name is Millie and the kittens are called Charlie and Rosie. Charlie looks just like Millie did as a kitten. I have got some pix and will upload them to the site when I have figured out how to do it. In the meantime this is a short video of her playing with my border collie pup.

Aaaawww ! Millie is such an adorable kitty, and so is the puppy. Love how she was kissed... I'm now in love with her too ! I think I know why your good neighbor was tempted to shelter her. If I were your neighbor, I won't be able to resist her... (what a wicked scheme)

You might think about getting a couple of Feliway Plug in diffusers to help Millie adjust to the newcomers.

The best price I have found is at entirelypets.com. Google entirelypets.com coupon first, you can usually come up with a code to save yourself a few bucks.

Also Rescue Remedy might help Millie feel calmer.
