Aggressive Cat Behavior

by Deb
(Rosemount, MN)

We have two cats; one male and the other female. We have had them spayed, neutered, and front claws removed at age 6 months; they are now 3 years of age. Approximately 3 weeks ago, our female, Remi became very aggressive toward the male, Bo. She will hiss, scream and chase or stand her ground with him and swat his face and head repeatedly. We do not know what set this in motion. She will be fine with him one minute and the next sound like a wild cat and attack him. Bo does nothing to set her off, except maybe look at her for too long! Bo is 11 pounds to her 7, and we were afraid he would hurt her, so we began squirting them with the squirt bottle when she would become aggressive, this stopped Bo from chasing her, but it has not stopped her from having these aggressive fits. Any ideas?

Please try the introduction method for your cats, this help them to calm down and be able to get used to each other in as afe environment. it does take some time and effort on your part but it is worth it in the end.

Squirting them with water will only make things worse and make them afraid of you.
