Cat being aggresive towards other 2 cats?
Smokey has become aggressive to my other 2 cats. A lot of hissing and chasing. What gives?
A little history: My first cat Colonel (RIP) came to me about 7 years ago. Around 5 years ago, I had finally completed my end of the bargain with my wife to get a second cat. I was in touch with several breeders to get my dream cat. An Ocicat On a cold Dec. night when I went to go to work oI a tripped over a shivering black cat Onyx. I quickly picked up Onyx and made a safe room for her. I had some trouble with introduction to Colonel, but after 4 months everything was fine.
When Colonel crossed in Aug 2013, I started visiting the local shelter. In Nov. I thought I met the cat that was for me, Tippy Toes. A semi long haired blank and white. When I took my wife to the shelter, she liked the cat in the next cage, Smokey. Well, "let's make hay while the sun is shining". According the shelter, Smokey and Tippy where a bonded pair. Both relinquished to them by an elderly lady that could no longer care for them. I adopted both of them.
Quick intro and everything has been good until 2 weeks ago. Smokey has become aggressive towards Tippy and Onyx.
What gives here? They have been together for over 1 year. How would you suggest I stop this? It isn't to the point of being real bad yet. Want to nip it before it becomes real bad. Should I just let it go or is Smokey just asserting her dominance? All cats are desexed females.
My cats aren't spoilt, Just well loved.
