I'm looking for a little advise, I hope you can help me!
We have recently adopted a new cat from a rescue centre. She is two years old and the friendliest cat I have ever seen.
However, we already had another cat (a tom, also 2 years old and neutered). We had picked a young female who was supposedly good with other cats and had been spayed. Unfortunately, she seems to terrorise our tom! He is very wary of her and seems very quiet and scared. All seems calm around the house, often they will even sit near each other; lots of staring and stalking has been going on.
Then occasionally, all **** breaks loose. For no apparent reason she will chase and attack him.
We feel really terrible for putting our Scamp through all this. We would not want to return Amber but we can't let Scampy get "pushed out" which is what seems to be happening.
Can anybody tell me this is normal? Is there anything we can do to calm things down?
It has only been about two and a half weeks so far. We kept them separate when we were out during the day but she is now ok to go outside. We will be able to let them both have free run of the house from tomorrow. We don't want Scampy being bullied all day while we are out!
Thanks in advance for your help
