Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Dr. Caroline is not on-line. Would you like someone else to answer your question?
glad to hear from you!
Ouch, not a good situation.
You can try medication, prozac is one of them (Called fluoxetine). Keep in mind it takes up to a whole month to see changes.
I know you might already do this, however here is a site about feline enrichment, and see if there is anything else you may find in the conflict between cats section:
Make sure the other cats are feeling not threatened, since if they show anxiety, it may trigger this ex-tom cat.
Also, sorry to say, but this may never resolve. You have worked a great deal (good job!) on this, but some kitty may just never turn around and will stay wild and defend their territory.
Let me know if you need anything else.
Hello to Nan and the rest of the critters.
one other thing when you try to introduce a kitty to another, try petting the resident cat then the "Tom boy", just to get him to get use to the smell of the others. It maybe impossible to change this behavior if he has been this way for years, and some cats just do not do well in a multi cat household. However, it looks like you are doing a lot of job to make this happen. So, word of caution, be careful of you and the resident ones. If the resident cat are stressed, they need some good stuff to calm them too.
Hello to the cat mob!
Good to hear from Chelsea. They can be blind and do very well, as you have noticed I'm sure.
Keep up the good work, be careful and keep me posted!
