Customer Question
I recently introduced two female...
I recently introduced two female felines (neutered) both were loveable non violent into a home with another neutered female. One of my females became aggressive towards the
female resident and attacks her and waits in an aggressive mode ready to pounce on her at a moments notice. we have used calming sprays, calming plug ins, and nothing has helped. I believe that I am in need of a small animal feline behaviorist to try and correct this problem. We now keep them separated all of the time with my two in one room with food, water and litter tray, and the other in another room with the same. We alternate in wet food feeding into the open rooms and letting each go out and enjoy the whole house, but at different times. It is a bit problem.
Hope you can help. ***@******.***

Hello, Gary and welcome.

My name is ***** ***** I will be glad to help. I'm sorry you're experiencing this problem of aggression with Sara.

I will need a bit more information in order to best assist you.

How old are all the girls and who is the resident cat that Sara is bothering?

How did you first introduce them, when you brought home the two new kitties?

How long have you had the new furry girls?

Which plug-in and calming spray are you using?

Thanks for all your additional information and after you reply, please allow me some time to go through it and then, compose and send your detailed answer.

Warmest regards,

Cher

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
