Cat peeing again. Anxiety induced?
Back in november we were having peeing issues with one of our female cats because one of my male cats, chex was tormenting her near the litterboxes. This must have caused her anxiety. We had tried everything from more litter boxes, to litter box locations being moved, feliway, etc. So Chex was put on prozac to help calm him down from tormenting the female.
My other male cat, chuck, seems to be tormenting her now. He has never been a cat to do this nor has he ever cared about the female cat at all. This is out of his character. He just seems to follow her everywhere, with an occansional whack to her. She always whacks back. The other male in the house, bear occansionally also attacks her, but not really following her around. The female, sam has now started peeing again. We have caught her directly by setting up a webcam. I am at whits end, we dont want to get rid of a cat, so we are gonna try and see what the vet says, probably give her some anti anxiety medication.
Seperating the cats all the time is hardly desireable, it could be done, but in an apartment it would create a lot of stress. I dont understand why the 3 male cats all seem to torment her, the male cats all seem to get along fine. The living arrangements arent changing anytime soon. Getting rid of the cat isnt a good solution, shes six years old and would end up stuck in a kennel for a long time. I dont want to create any resentment in my current relationship either. Sam is the boyfriends cat.
Any other ideas on how to deal with this? I am completely out of ideas. thanks
