Usually younger cats are just more energetic and playful in general. While some of this may seem like bullying to us, this may just be the way these two interact. If the other cat is continuing to eat, drink, and go to the litter box, then it should be fine just to let it go. I have one cat who occasionally runs into the room and pounces on her sleeping housemate. They tumble, the other runs off. Then it's like nothing happened. It just seems to be that some cats interact with others that way. What may seem weird to us is okay to the other cat.
I have a 70-day old cat, and today, we brought in a younger, 40-day old cat. The younger one is really scared since this is a new home. When she’s eating or playing, he will come in, start sniffing her and paw slap her. At first, she didn't react but now she is slapping a bit back, and he hisses; she only hisses when he slaps her. I don't know if this is normal, because when she starts hissing, I take him out of my room. What should I do?
I have a newer senior cat addition and performed all the steps. My other cat is younger, but the older cat has been seeking out the younger cat and fighting. I redirect him and tell him off, but he actively goes back to fighting my other cat. It has come to the point that I'm ready to rehome him. I don't know what else to do, and it is becoming very stressful for all. What can I now do to resolve this?
We have two male cats, ages nine and eleven, and recently introduced a third (a stray male kitten). The new guy will eat his food quickly, and then push the other cats out of their bowls to eat their food. We've been telling him no and using a spray bottle, but he continues the same behavior shortly after. He knows not to do this, as he backs up when I give him a look now. He just wants to do it anyway. Do you have any tips on teaching him to stop trying to steal food?
