Cat Fights – How do you stop them? Your vet will administer the proper Pet Medication if necessary!

cat-fight-2I was not going to write about this today but I had a troublesome dream last night. In my dream, my indoor cat, Mollie somehow got out of our home in Delaware. I heard her crying and ran to the door and saw another cat on top of her “beating her up!” I did everything I could to get to her but could not. You know that strange feeling in dreams when you try to move but can’t. It was a horrible feeling!  I woke up to find Mollie in her bed just fine. What do you do if your cat gets into a fight with another cat or you see two cats fighting?  The first thing that you have to do is see if they’re just playing or really fighting.  Hissing at each other a few times is normal but continued hissing suggests that a cat fight is about to get underway.  If they are fighting, try distracting them. Drop something on the floor  or make a loud noise.  This should startle them and have them running in opposite directions. Shaking a box or can of food treats should also get them to stop fighting.  Do not try to physically remove one cat from the other. You’ll get bitten and scratched. If your cat is injured, get him to your vet as soon as possible. Your vet will determine the extent of his injuries and what type of pet medication is needed.
