cats fighting

I have 2 cats, both 8 yrs old. They were adopted as kittens at the same time ,not same litter, from an animal shelter. Two days ago we brought in a couch and rearranged furniture in a main living area.  This generated alot of smelling and curious looks from my cats.  About 2-3 hours later they had a huge and serious fight, I have never seen this before.  That night and the next day we had alot of hissing and growling, mostly from one cat toward the other. Today we thought it had calmed down-they had even eaten "cookies" together, but another bad fight.  Any ideas or suggestions?  Help! Ginger

Wow, that's really strange.  Was the new couch used by any chance?  Perhaps the couch's previous owner had an unneutered male cat that left some of its smell on the fabric.  This may have caused the strange behavior in your cats.  Try spaying the couch with some febreeze and see what happens.

Good luck!

Thanks, I'll try that.  I also thought about using a calming spray I saw at a pet store and we are going to see the vet.  I hate that the behavior of my male cat seems to have changed from loving outgoing to nervous and afraid of the female cat.

Thanks again, Ginger
