Cat aggression toward another cat

Tuesday, March 5, 2013
posted by Jim Murphy

As I’ve mentioned, I have two cats. My older cat Mollie doesn’t like my younger cat, Millie. I am still trying to cope with this problem. Millie is petrified of Mollie and actually tries to run and hide from her. I have two food bowls, two litter boxes and more than one of everything else. Millie waits until Mollie is done eating before going to her bowl. Mollie hisses and chases Millie when she passes. Mollie is extremely attached to me and seems to try to protect me. I feel bad because I feel that Millie deserves a more peaceful life. She does know that she is loved and cared for but she’s always looking behind to ensure that she is not being followed by the big “cookie monster” as my roommate calls her!

I’m convinced that there is no solution to this. I just have to make life as comfortable and pleasant for both cats. I give both cats lots of attention. Some people ask me what to do in a situation like this. My answer is get two of everything and make sure that each cat has enough space. If you have an upstairs, you can keep one cat’s things upstairs and the other’s downstairs. This won’t solve the problem but might help prevent “cat fights.”
