All suggestions are good and I agree with all. I would add that the Vet visit is the best place to start. There is one other possibility. If something happened when your neighbor was not at home that startled or scared the cat or her feline sibling, there may have been a bout of transferred fear/hostility causing a problem between the two cats. Most cats get over this but with some it causes a complete break of trust between the cats. Especially if there is something else going on with kitty, like failing vision, illness or dementia. Only your friend can tell if the quality of life is such that the end of life decision needs to be made. I would ask how the other cat acts around the hiding kitty. Does he try to seek her out or does he avoid her too? If she is healthy per the Vet, she might try putting kitty in her own room with her own food, water and litter. That will tell her if kitty is eating, drinking and going to the bathroom. If all that is happening, try a slow re-introduction to the other cat and the rest of the house. Let us know how it goes, know it is a hard decision for your friend.
