My dear childhood friend is terminal (lung and brain cancer) it developed suddenly and he left his home for the hospital - he has a beautiful black cat (female/spayed) who's been in the home alone ever since he left (2 weeks)Friend's wife is caring for their severely disabled daughter and their other 2 daughters and lives far from his home. She asked if I could feed/water cat (not on a frequent basis) to help. Went yesterday - cat is aggressive, lunges at my feet, meows in a way that frightens me, ears back. I left her food and water and changed the catbox but whenever I'd walk she'd get in front of me. She lunged at me a couple times and I grabbed a water squirt bottle and had to squirt her. I truly hated to do that but I didn't want to be attacked. I want to help the family but...any suggestions here. I know you folks will hate me for squirting her but I didn't want to be attacked. Frankly, I feel the family should take her in as she's been alone sans owner for now a bit over 2 weeks. He only has a few weeks to live if this 2nd chemo doesn't work on the lungs. Thanks all - really appreciate feedback.
