We have a big problem Bae Lee and Keeper
Just to remind everyone, we rescued our brothers from a home that they were 100% outdoors in the elements with little contact with owners and probably little attention. We have noticed that if one was on the couch with us or we were loving one, that they would growl low, but never anything serious. Then they would lick each other's faces. Never last longer than a minute.
So today, I'm working and am sitting on the couch. Keeper gets up on the couch beside me and puts his head on my lap. I'm petting him and Bae Lee gets up from the other side of the room and presses up against me for love too. Keeper starts growling like he does some times low. Bae Lee keeps pressing toward me. Keeper jumps down and gowls really loud sneering and the next thing I know they are both up on their hind legs only, really going after each other. Bae Lee (still both on hind legs only) pushes Keeper into the TV and almost knocks it (heavy 42" old tv) onto the floor. I had been trying to seperate them but almost got bit myself.
I screamed at them at the top of my lungs NO and pushed Bae Lee back. Then they start licking each others faces. I'm in shock. Have never seen anything like this before. Then I notice that Keeper has a 1/2" gas about 1/2" below his right eye that is bleeding. They are now licking each others face and wagging their tails.
Just got back from the vet. She gave us ointment and instructions to keep Keeper from scratching it. She also put him on an antibiotic to be safe. How do we keep this from happening again? They can't stand to be away from each other, but don't want this to happen again! How can we prevent this again.
