I had the same thing happen with one of my cats some years ago with a plastic bag the same way. At the time I had about 6 other cats and as she tore thro the house the other cats all stopped, arched their backs with fur all stuck out. It was hilarious! No one attacked the "crazy" cat, but they all approached her very cautiously after I removed the plastic bag to check out who this whirling dervish was. After a few sniffs, all was well and back to normal.
Cats can certainly get spooked about crazy stuff sometimes. I agree this was propably a one-time thing with Patches attacking Zoey.
