Female cat who gets attacked.

Female cat who gets attacked.

I have 6 cats and 2 of them are bullies why is this? They are two males attacking my female cat. They all have been done but the two males still attack my female cat why? It wakes me up in the morning and while im trying to sleep. She screams and i think they are playing but it gets abit rough. What shall i do?

Cats are not pack animals and do not naturally live in groups (unlike dogs). SO in the wild most cats live a part and have their own territory this way avoiding confrontation etc.
SO basically the cat fights are normal, they don't build relationships like us with each other and although may have periods of affection for each other, basically they will still have territory issues and it sounds like this female cat has been singled out as the weakest in the group and so is being as you say bullied.
Unfortunately there is not much you can do apart from trying to keep them separate during the night (especially if the fights occur mainly during this time)
It is important that each cat has there own space ie their own beds, litter trays etc and places to escape from each other when they need too.

I have a page here about cat aggression which you may find of further interest here is the link to the page https://www.our-happy-cat.com/aggressive-cat-behavior.html

Thankyou for your support and answers. You are a very quick responsive website and which i will be using again. And telling others to use. You are correct about my cat being the weakest in the pack. She is a cat who runs away when you go near her. I didnt know about cat packs like dogs. Thanks Emma
