Customer Question
I rescued a siamese...

I rescued a siamese mix cat in May. I also have a feral cat I brought home when he was 3 wks old (mother died). The Siamese is very aggresive toward the other cat (5 ys old) Siamese approx 1-1/2 yrs) I've kept them separated since May. How do I get them to not fight if I let the Siamese (Bettie Grable) out of the master suite? I'm getting a little desperate. I don't want them to injure themselves--or me!

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the siamese's name?

I named her Bettie Grable because it looks like she's got garters on her back legs & Betty Grable (Movie star) had the most famous legs of the 1920's-1940's/

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bettie?

No. She's very healthy & eats well. It's only her aggressiveness toward the 5-yr. old Bruno.

Can you tell me more about what signs of aggression you witness?

Is the siamese spayed?

Is the other cat altered, as well?

Have any socialization techniques been tried thus far? If so, what?

Both cats altered. The Siamese attacks the Short-hair tabby thru the glass windows
