My cat is bullied by neighbour's cat - please help
My cat Rosie is 2.5y old and recently became an outdoor cat. She is very friendly but feisty little thing, recently she has been introduced to the outdoors and loves going outside. We have a massive that leads into the forest so she doesn't wonder far and she loves it.
however the other day she has a stand off with the neighbour's black cat, there were stand off stances, body postures, hissing and spitting and the black cat ran off. Then last night Rosie was thinking of going outside was wasn't and then i saw the black cat sitting on the steps of our garden staring at her, she sat in the open window and hissed at him. The he got up and sprayed on our hedge and left. Rosie didnt leave leave the house that night afterwards.
I felt really bad for her as she was clearly bullied by that black cat, who also marked our garden right in font of her, what an offence! Plus she is new to the outdoor world and i feel really bed that she is already met with intimidation from another cat.
i see this cat a lot, he seems to be outside all the time, the neighbours don't seem to care much for him (i assume its a male as he sprayed) as i saw him sleeping outside their front door once on a very cold night.
please can you advise anything with regards to this situation, any opinions or experiences would be greatly appreciated. many thanks
