That is my guess too. Cats don't have the same logic as humans.
Puddles had got the handles of a plastic bag stuck around her neck, got scared, ran around the house with the bag trailing behind her, scared Snowball because of her panic and Snowball hissed at her for days after that, then they were best buds again.
