    Sometimes, after an accident the healthier animal will prey on the weaker one (pick fights). In the wild, the injured animal would die in one way or another, so this is bringing out your healthy cat's survival instinct. Once your injured pet heals, the picking on him may dissipate, or it may become a habit. Discipline the healthy one so that he knows that attacking your other cat is not acceptable. You might want to change their feeding times also if the weaker one is having food stolen. If the behavior persists, separate them when you are not home so that one can heal peacefully during the day, when you are not home to intervene if there is an incident. ^_^
