I think he was more confused at her reaction to him . . . I was trying to "re-introduce" them (read a ton of stuff on feline behavior that year) and would let him in the room where she was.  She'd go to another part of the room where she felt protected, but would not come near him and didn't want him near her.  They'd always gotten along before that vet visit (I did do the scent exchange thing but it didn't seem to help, then tried the Feliway diffuser), but after that, she would actually growl at him.   :o  I'd never heard her growl before.  One day they must have gotten into a huge fight, because they both horked up HUGE hairballs, to the point where neither of them could keep food down.  That's when I separated them with the hope of eventually getting them back together.

Anyway, I don't think he ever really understood why she wouldn't play with him anymore, or let him near her, poor guy (neither do I, for that matter).  But yeah, it probably did help that he had Mommy (and her lap) all to himself after she was gone.

Hope Pookie doesn't feel badly.  The way guys tell it... they NEVER understand women.  ;)

He saw the puffed up spot and with a cry of JOY he leapt up and put his paws on it,

A little update.  Hope I don't jinx the situation...

Lola seems to be doing MUCH better... finally.  She's not the Lola she was, before Leonard's passing, but I think she is who she is going to be. 
She is much more sociable and friendly.  The anger seems to have passed.

Thanks.  Yes, I do feel better...feel better that she feels better.  I know you will understand.... it just broke my heart (brought me to tears at times) to see her so broken hearted.
