I joined the forum because I'm having a problem with my cats. I have 4 cats that started out as ferals in my back yard but are now coming in my house and sleeping in my bed with me. They turned out to be really affectionate. The calico female has always been the outsider because she's smaller than her brothers. (and she weighs 11 pounds!) She's very gentle, so when the boys played rough with her, she'd get upset. But now the grey tabby is trying to mate with her even though he's neutered. I'd find tufts of her white hair all over the house from them fighting. So she's been staying away from home more and more. I got worried that she'd eventually not come back at all and become a stray cat, with all the misery that goes along with that. Now I've got her locked in the house and she'll be an indoor kitty for the rest of her life. She's not thrilled by this but she's adjusting nicely. I'm trying to find her a home where she can be the only cat, and someone suggested that I put the grey tabby on Prozac to calm his aggressive tendencies. He's very sweet and affectionate towards me, but he was the runt and has a bit of a Napoleon complex when it comes to other cats. And she's the only one of the siblings that he can beat up on, so he does. I spray him with water when he goes after her in the house, and now he knows he's supposed to stay away from his sister. As long as I'm home he behaves, so I make sure the two of them are separated whenever I leave the house. Anybody have any suggestions or advice for me? Thanks!
