Customer Question
My 4 month old...

My 4 month old kitten is agresdive with my 13 year old male desexed cat. Ive tried a spray bottle but doesnt deter her. Any advice would be appreciated

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the kitten's name?

Ruby
