Aggressive cat destroying my strays' colony. Need help ASAP please!
I manage a colony that at this time has about 20 strays. I feed them at the tiny public park under the condo where I live. Recently, one of the cats has started being even more aggressive than usual, and the cats disperse, don't come as much as they used to, and don't eat much because they're in a hurry to leave. I resent her for destroying what I worked so hard to accomplish. I'm waiting for the TNR guys in a couple weeks, but I know that spaying doesn't necessarily diminish territorial frenzy in aggressive cats, and it can actually become worse.
She's become so bad that lately the only way I have to make sure the shy ones get a bite is to kick her away - literally. She's always glued to me and if I try to get away, she scratches me and it hurts.
She was always crazy, but I used to be able to calm her down. I gave her lots of love for months.
I don't have money to take my strays to the vet, so I can't rule out sickness as cause for her behavior. She has huge lumps on the sides of her body, like the bags of a burro, but she's had them since I first met her 5-6 months ago.
She lives in a parking lot next to the feeding station, so it's impossible to be any length of time without her around.
