I share a house with two other people and have had my cat for about 6 years. I adopted her from a shelter and the lady said she had been abused prior to her being in the shelter, and she didn't get along with male cats. So, she's always been the only cat in the house, I had a dog for a while and she was more or less fine with that because he was a very timid dog, and she did bully him a bit but it was never truly violent. When I moved in with my first roommate, she had a cat (a male) and the two did NOT get along. They were both "fixed" but still my cat would mark the house every now and then and she would attack him constantly, making that horrible hissing sound and bringing out the claws. She started urinating all over the house, sometimes it looks like it may have blood in it and almost daily there were puddles on the floor in the morning. I made sure that her tray was clean and everything but she would sometimes urinate around it. She was always howling and just seemed generally very dominant. He disappeared a few weeks back and my roommates and I decided we would get another cat. We ended up adopting two. My cat is not impressed. They two new cats are brothers, very sweet, extremely affectionate, and already totally comfortable. We just got them today, but they already seem very adjusted, they didn't hide at all just explored
