Harmony among cats

Friday, November 18, 2011
posted by Jim Murphy

A leading cause of behavior problems with cats are multiple cats in the home. Cat on cat aggression is not pretty and neither is territorial spraying. Cats are a non social species. If you put cats together, you’ll see a domestic hierarchy develop. In my home, my older cat, Mollie is the dominant cat. It can be difficult for my younger cat, Millie because she always has to be on her guard. Mollie blocks her way to her food, the bathroom and just about everywhere. Mollie “stares her down” and silently tells Millie who’s boss. As you can see, cats like to divide up the home territory. Always keep this in mind if you are thinking of getting another cat. If your cats are all spayed and neutered, it will simplify things. Try feline appeasers. They come in plug in diffusers ┬álike a night light. It’s not a cure all but it might keep your cats mellow in a multi-cat house hold.

Remember, your pets count!
